Ingredients
Soup
  • 4 cloves garlic 
  • 2 medium yellow onions 
  • 6 ribs celery 
  • 1 lb (3-4) carrots 
  • 4 large (3/4 lb.) chicken breast 
  • 2 whole bay leaf 
  • 2 tsp basil 
  • 2 tsp dried thyme 
  • freshly cracked pepper 
  • 4 cups water $0.00
  • salt (plus more to taste)
Dumplings
  • I just follow the recipe on the Bisquick box 😉 
Instructions
  1. Mince the garlic, dice the onion, and slice the carrots and celery into small pieces. Add the garlic, onion, carrot, celery, bay leaf, basil, thyme, chicken breast, water, and some freshly cracked pepper to a slow cooker. Stir to combine and then cook on high for four hours or low for eight hours.
  2. After cooking , remove the chicken and shred the chicken. Return it to the pot. 
  3. Allow the soup to continue to cook on high while you mix the dumpling batter. 
  4. Remove the lid from the slow cooker and drop the dumpling batter into the soup by the heaping spoonful. Return the lid to the slow cooker and allow the dumplings to steam for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes they should have fluffed and expanded from the heat. Serve hot.

My favorite shortcut is to use three bags of the mirepoix soup starter from the freezer section (cut up onion, celery, and carrot). Such a fast and easy dinner!
