chicken and dumpling soup is the best soup ever. the most important part of the soup is to brown the chicken before starting. i used onions and mushrooms and took out the carrots and celery. the dumplings are made with milk and chicken fat. mmmm. to the right they look more like cauliflower florets, but i assure you, they are in fact dumplings. the recipe's from america's test kitchen cookbook that my mother got me for my bday or maybe xmas.
