Hey, hey it’s soup recipe time. Do you love chicken soup? How about chicken soup with dumplings? Here’s how to make Chicken Soup with Sweet Potato Dumplings. We adapted it from a slow cooker recipe to a stove top recipe. Typically I love cooking slow cooker recipes but, on this day I took Sammie to get her driver’s permit.

I’m scared to death to have her drive, despite seeing 4 other kids go on to become great drivers. Sigh, no turning back now. Our DMV appointment, with an appointment it took hours! You’d think it would be faster? 

Despite her finishing the test rather quickly, foot tapping, and waiting for the 1 of 3 clerks to give us the details. She passed! And that’s how the 6 hour slow cooker chicken and sweet potato dumplings turned stove top recipe. So let’s get cooking.

I started with this great cook book with easy to make recipes that I received for free to review, called Sunday Suppers. The day before I had made the classic roast chicken on page 57.

This is a mildly flavored chicken so if you love cooking Mexican, or Italian you might adapt it slightly if making it just for dinner. This comes from my teen, who prefers spicy food.

But, the chicken is perfect for the soup, very juicy, and tender. Any way, that night I just pulled the other half of chicken meat that we didn’t eat for dinner off the bone. I chopped it up, and put it in my glass meal storage container, and into the fridge for the next day for making soup.

I’ve tried two recipes so far, and enjoyed them both. I can’t wait to try a few more recipes, and share them with you. I like their menu plans, desserts, sweet potato cornbread, and other dinner recipes. It has a nice mix of seasonal meal plans in the book. All perfect for Sunday dinners, and gatherings. There are even a few grilling recipes in the cookbook.

Add in your pre cooked, and chopped organic chicken, and 2-boxes of organic chicken broth. Lid, and simmer while making your dumplings. (I bet you could adapt this recipe, to use with your left over turkey if you wanted.)

rolled out, and cut in small pieces sweet potato dumplings ready to be boiled and cooked for chicken soup with dumplings.

Cut them into one inch pieces. Perfection is not necessary. Flour a cookie sheet, because it makes quite a few. Boil water in a separate pot, and boil them 10-13 at a time for about 3-4 minutes (they’ll begin to float). Use a slotted spoon to lift out, set into a bowl or dish.

This was my first time making them, and it was way easier than I thought.

Either way, you’ll have your dinner served up quickly with this recipe. Because as soon as those dumplings are made your soup is ready. Delish!
