Creamy chicken noodle soup with tender, pillowy dumplings? YES. Yes indeed.

This is true comfort food at its best, with no canned biscuits or canned soups of any kind. The dumplings are made completely from scratch with a few pantry staples (unsalted butter, self-rising flour, and buttermilk), and they're super easy to whip up, too.

TOOLS FOR THIS RECIPE

SHOULD I USE WHITE WINE?

You can use additional chicken broth for white wine as a non-alcoholic substitute.

WHAT IS HEAVY CREAM?

Heavy cream (or heavy whipping cream) has one of the highest fat contents at around 36-40% fat. Half-and-half or whole milk are suitable substitutes, but will produce a lighter result.

WHAT IF I DON'T HAVE SELF-RISING FLOUR?

For 1 cup of self-rising flour, you can substitute 1 cup of all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda.

  • ¼ cup unsalted butter
  • 1 medium sweet onion, cut into cubes
  • 2 carrots, peeled and cut into cubes
  • 2 ribs celery, cut into cubes
  • 2 Cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 ¼ teaspoons poultry seasoning
  • ¼ cup All purpose flour
  • 4 cups coarsely chopped rotisserie chicken
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • ½ cup dry white wine
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, taste
  • ½ cup frozen peas, thawed
  • 2 spoons chopped fresh parsley leaves

  • 3 spoons unsalted butter, Cold
  • 1 ½ cups self rising flour
  • ¾ cup milk butter

  • Stir in the cream; Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  • Working in batches, gently mix the dumpling pieces. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until gnocchi are cooked through and tender, about 5 to 8 minutes.

for the gnocchi

  • Grate the butter using the large holes of a grater. Incorporate the flour.
