A homemade recipe for Chicken and Dumplings Soup with easy drop biscuits is pure comfort food!
It doesn’t get much more cozy than Chicken and Dumplings Soup, does it? Sure, there’s chicken noodle soup or chicken and rice soup but there’s something about a creamy chicken soup with fluffy dumplings in it that just can’t be beat. Give me a snowstorm, a sherpa sweater, and a bowl of chicken and dumpling soup and I’d be a happy girl!
Easy Comfort Food
Not only is it total comfort food and delicious, but it’s crazy easy. The ingredients are simple and the entire thing is made from scratch – even the dumplings. If the idea of baking your own dumplings is intimidating, I promise you – they are so easy! The most time consuming part of it was having to text my neighbor to borrow baking powder because somehow, I ran out.
Ingredients in Chicken and Dumplings Soup
The dumplings are made of flour, baking powder, salt, pepper, and heavy cream. You simply mix all of it together and then drop dough balls into the simmering soup. They turn out light and fluffy, and absolutely irresistible! They were, no surprisingly, my kids favorite part.
The soup part of this recipe is made with simple and wholesome ingredients including onion, carrots, celery, thyme, garlic, peas, carrots, chicken broth, and chicken. I used boneless skinless chicken breasts this time around, but you could easily use chicken thighs, shredded rotisserie chicken, or turkey!
The ease of this recipe along with the fact that my entire family requested seconds means I’ll be making this soup all winter long, and I’m not mad about it.
