This Homemade Chicken Dumpling Soup is healthy and delicious! It will warm your heart and satisfy your taste buds!

I can still smell it!  The aroma was undeniable and unforgettable.  I remember walking into my grandma’s house and knowing that I would be enjoying her delicious Homemade Chicken Dumpling Soup soon.  There she would be, sitting at the kitchen table, pulling the chicken off the bone.  There was just something about sitting at the table with her.  Not only did she teach me how to cook and bake so many yummy things, she taught me so much about life.  The conversation never stopped and neither did the laughs.

For 33 years, I was lucky enough to have her in my life.  When I was a child, she lived just across the field from our house.  I was able to visit her whenever I wanted, and I truly took advantage of that.  While hanging out with grandma, she instilled in me to always trust in God and give all thanks to Him.  She taught me the importance of the little things, whether that be a quick hug or a simple smile.  She may have mentioned a time or two, “What grandpa doesn’t know won’t hurt him.”  This topic came up often when we were planning a shopping trip.  She was also persistent that no matter how much I loved her, she was sure she loved me more.  

Over the years, I was able to sit at the kitchen table with my grandma so many times, watching her make her Homemade Chicken Dumpling Soup.  Without even trying, she taught me exactly how to make it.  While I am so grateful for this recipe, it is the conversations that hold a special place.

While my grandma is no longer here on earth, I am quite sure she has shared this recipe with all the angels above.  I am also confident that she would smile, knowing that I am sharing her Homemade Chicken Dumpling Soup recipe with all of you.  

Check out the steps below to experience a little taste of heaven!

Preparing and Making the Soup:
Step 1: Put chicken thighs, baby carrots, onions, black pepper, and 1 tsp salt in a large pressure cooker.
Step 2: Cover with water.
Step 3: Place the pressure cooker on high heat and cook for 15 minutes after the control jiggles.

*If you do not have a pressure cooker, you can boil the same ingredients in a large soup kettle for about 20 minutes or until the chicken is thoroughly cooked and falls off the bone.

Step 4: Once the chicken is cool enough to handle, remove it from the pressure cooker. Keep all other ingredients in the pressure cooker for later.
Step 5: Remove the chicken from the bone, disregarding all skin and bones.
Step 6: Pull chicken apart into smaller pieces and put it back into the pressure cooker.
Step 7: Add 4 cups water and chicken soup base.
Step 8: Place pressure cooker on medium heat.
Step 9: When it begins to boil, add the quick barley and Kluski noodles, stirring occasionally.

 

Mixing the Dumplings:
Step 1: In a large bowl, mix eggs, milk, and 1 tsp salt.  I usually use a metal tablespoon.
Step 2: Slowly add flour. The amount may vary slightly. The desired consistency is a bit thick. To check if you have achieved it, scoop some on a spoon and turn it upside down. It should slowly drop but appear to be a little sticky.

Adding the Dumplings:
Step 1: Dip the metal tablespoon into the boiling soup. (This will keep the dumplings from sticking to the spoon.)
Step 2: Drop one scoop of the dumpling mixture at a time into the boiling soup.
Step 3: Allow dumplings to cook for about 5 minutes.
Step 4: Serve and enjoy!
