Tag Archives: homemade chicken soup dumplings
Chicken soup has got to be one of my all-time favourite foods and this hearty bowl of homemade soup with big chewy dumplings does the trick for me. Especially on a rainy, cold day – which there are many in Portland!
I like to make a big pot at the start of the week and throw it into a cute thermos like this one if I’m heading out for day. This chicken soup is also super quick to prepare and is a great weeknight meal. The dumplings are a great way to change things up if you’re getting tired of chicken noodle soup.
If you can – source Trader Joe’s Mirepoix Mix it is such a HUGE time saver. If not, chop up 1-2 carrots, 1 yellow onion and 2 ribs of celery instead. But if you can find the mix, it’s a big timesaver! Here’s the recipe:
- 1 container of Trader Joe’s Mirepoix Mix
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 2 bay leaves
- Salt & pepper
- 1 tsp dried thyme
- 2 boxes low-sodium, organic chicken stock
- 1 package of organic chicken breast tenders, cut into chunks
- Handful dill, chopped
