4 cups cold water

Directions:
Directions:


First, sauté some diced carrots, onions, and celery in some butter.

Then, sprinkle some flour on the veggies and stir around to coat, and add some chicken stock ( broth) and bring to a boil. The flour will help thicken the gravy-like broth to a perfect consistency.
While the soup is coming to a boil, mix the dumpling dough: flour, salt, baking powder, fresh thyme, melted butter, and milk. ( or use canned or frozen bisquits)

Once the soup comes to a boil, add some ( 1 cup) milk and the cooked chicken to the pot. Add scoops of the dumpling dough to the broth, cover the pot, and simmer for 15 minutes.

Keep an eye on your dumplings, once they float, they should be done, but turning them and spacing them out helps when you add a lot of dumplings.

Papa Joe made this for me when I was a kid, it was a meal time favorite. He made this for you when you were little,too and I have made it for him as he got older. I know Levi prefers no onions, and Riley prefers more dumplings. Taste as you go and adjust to your preference.
