What You Need

  • 1 32 ounce container chicken broth
  • 2 skinless boneless chicken breast halves, roasted or boiled, cut into bite size pieces
  • 1/2 16 ounce package frozen mixed veggies (I like carrots, peas, corn, and green beans)
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 T. garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Dumplings
  • 2 cups baking mix I use Bisquick
  • 2/3 cup milk

How to Make It

  • Combine chicken broth, bay leaves, garlic powder, salt, and pepper in a large pot; bring to a boil.
  • Reduce to a simmer and cover for 20-30 minutes.
  • Add chicken and veggies.
  • Reduce heat, cover pot, and simmer until the veggies are tender, 10-15 minutes.
  • Mix baking mix and milk in a bowl until dough is sticky; drop golf ball-sized pieces of dough into the soup. (I like to add a sprinkle of cayenne to the dough to add a bit of heat.)
  • Cover pot and cook until dumplings are cooked through, about 10 minutes
  • Ladle into bowls and serve!
