Recipe Wrap Up

We made chicken soup using the leftovers from the Crock-Pot Rotisserie Chicken. Mmm, mmm, good.

Chicken Soup with Dumplings

Place leftover chicken pieces (bones and juices) from a rotisserie chicken in a large pot. (Reserve the leftover meat to add later.) Add celery (including leaves). Cut an onion into quarters and add to pot. Add water. Cover and bring to a boil then simmer for an hour or so. Remove bones, onion, and celery pieces. Add the leftover meat to the broth. (At this point we put the broth in the fridge and cook the soup another day.) Add sliced carrots, chopped onions, chopped celery, and any other desired vegetables. Bring to a boil and then reduce and simmer. Add desired spices (chicken bouillon, onion/garlic powder, etc.). Cornstarch can be added to thicken broth if desired. Once the soup is ready prepare dumplings.


2 1/2 cups Copycat Bisquick Mix
2/3 cup milk

Combine mix and milk. Batter/dough will be very lumpy. Drop by spoonfuls onto top of soup. Cook uncovered for 10 minutes. Then cover and cook 10 additional minutes. Serve and enjoy.

++A pot like this works great with the pasta cooker insert used to hold the chicken pieces and vegetables. Then you only have to remove that piece and discard the items instead of having to strain the broth.

++I am not 100% on all of the seasonings as PE is the seasonings guru in our house. He would make my dad (Chef Al) so proud. I try and try to make the spaghetti sauce and chicken soup taste as good as when PE makes them; however, I always fail. I am a seasonings failure. Oh well, I am comfortable with that. So long as someone in my house can make me delicious spaghetti sauce and chicken soup then I am happy.

Moo made German pancakes on Sunday too. She enjoys making those any time we will let her. I try not to let it be too often as our recipes is NOT low fat and that is the way we prefer it.
