Quick Chicken and Dumpling Soup
Don't be intimidated by homemade soup. Our recipe for chicken and dumpling soup comes together quick enough for even the busiest weeknights.
Why This Recipe Works
Store-bought broth proved a good substitute for homemade stock in our Quick Chicken and Dumpling Soup, especially after we added flavorful vegetables and seasonings. Shredding a precooked rotisserie chicken—available at most supermarkets—saved us cooking time as well as cleanup time. Rolled noodle-style dumplings were too labor-intensive for our streamlined stew. Dropped biscuit-style dumplings were easier to make and just as fluffy and soft.
