A chicken based soup with plump homemade dumplings all made in one-pot! This chicken dumpling soup has simple ingredients, tastes delicious and happens to be kid friendly!  A soup to keep in your meal rotation! 

This recipe was shared by my mother-in-law but with some alternations this is what I came to.  It also goes by the name of Halusky (галушка) which can be a soft noodle or dumpling dish typically from Eastern Europe. But with such simple and easy going ingredients you don’t have to be European to attempt this tasty soup! I was tempted to add cream and flour to the soup but it’s delicious the way it is. Homemade dumplings aren’t that complicated to make and while your soup simmers (probably the time it takes potatoes to boil) you can have ready dumplings and then from there they only require about 5 minutes or so of cooking. A delicious soup to try!

You can sour the milk with 3-4 TBSP of vinegar for the buttermilk
