Personal Notes:
You can substitute fat free half and half or milk for the cream. I use skim milk.
I also don't use butter except to saute the onion.
You can buy frozen dumplings in the grocery store.

Chicken can be added. I sometimes add a bay leaf for flavor.

Optional dumpling recipe:
1 c. flour
1 t. baking soda
1 t. salt
