Knoephla (Dakota Chicken-and-Dumpling) Soup
From Cook's Country
Knoephla soup is a hearty Midwestern version of chicken and dumplings with a creamy base, tender potatoes, and chewy “knoephla.” To infuse our soup with flavor, we started by searing chicken thighs and simmering them in chicken broth to make a fortified base. We lightened up leaden dumplings with baking soda and instead of spooning them into the simmering soup like most recipes instruct, we used a piping bag and snipped the dumplings with kitchen shears. Half-and-half added richness to the dumplings and finished the soup for a creamy, satisfying dish.
Let the batter chill for at least 30 minutes before forming the dumplings. Chicken and broth can be made through step 2 and refrigerated; reheat before proceeding with step 3.
