chicken soup with dumplings

25 Jan

Here’s the next chapter in “Chicken Soup 5 Ways” by Everyday Food Magazine.  Since the dumplings are “hearty”, I didn’t mind that there wasn’t much to the rest of the soup.  The lemon was very good addition.

Only 2 more versions to go!

Chicken Soup with Dumplings

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup roughly chopped fresh spinach
  • salt and pepper
  • lemon wedges, for serving

In a large pot, bring broth to a simmer over medium-high heat.

In a medium bowl, mix together flour, cornmeal, baking powder, and salt,  With a fork, stir in buttermilk and spinach to form a dough.

Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls on top of simmering broth.  cover and cook until dumplings are cooked through, 7 to 10 minutes.  Gently stir in chicken, season with salt and pepper.  Cook until chicken is warmed through, 1 to 2 minutes.  Serve with lemon wedges.  Serves 6.
