Last-Minute Homemade Chicken Soup

Last-Minute Homemade Chicken Soup

A flavorful broth filled with vegetables and last-minute dumplings


2-3 servings


4 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup diced carrots
1/2 cup diced onions
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup peas
Dash celery seed
1/8 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1/2 teaspoon parsley
1/8 teaspoon paprika
3 eggs
about 1/3 cup flour
salt, to taste


1. Heat chicken broth, carrots, onions, and garlic until boiling; reduce heat, cover, and simmer until carrots are tender, about 15-20 minutes. Add peas and boil about 5 minutes longer.

2. In small bowl, beat eggs. Add enough flour to form a paste that is fairly thick but will still run. Drop paste from spoonfulls into the boiling soup. Stir gently, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes.

3. Add remaining seasonings to soup, making sure to salt to taste. (Salt needed depends a lot on how salty your chicken broth was when you started!)

Tammy's Review: 

This is a quick and easy "last-minute" chicken soup. It's very tasty; you won't even miss the meat part ;) It's also colorful and nutritious. I created this recipe when I was short on time and didn't have any meat thawed to use. We both really liked it! My rating: 10/10


Please see the recipe above for my complete review! Thanks! ~Tammy


My husband and I loved this soup. I added some celery, but kept with the recipe. The dumplings are very nice. We're not big meat eaters, so a chicken soup minus the chicken is right up our alley. Mike gave it a nine because he's not a big fan of peas in soup. I give it a ten. So, 9.5 it is!


My daughter asked for chicken noodle soup for her 4th birthday dinner so this is the one I made. She loved it. I used spiral noodles as a variation. The only thing I did different was put it in my crockpot before church and the noodles were pretty soggy by the time we got home but it was still yummy. She actually thought I had put mashed potatoes in it...nope...mashed noodles :)


This was such a great recipe! Very quick and easy to make and so flavorful. I made 3 changes to ours - added a cup of minced celery (and also kept the celery seed); added a cup of converted rice (raw) instead of the dumplings; and added about a cup of leftover shredded cooked chicken. Everyone loved it and we needed it today - very cloudy and cool. :) Thanks for another winner!


Ok so I used your recipe as a base but I couldn't have done it with out you:) I only had mixed frozen veggies so that is what I used. I also cooked some pasta in a separate pan and added that to each bowl instead of the dumplings. I added a little leftover chicken to the pot and it was good to go! The family liked it, I made it with leftovers and it was easy...what more could you ask for!!??
