Chicken Dumpling Soup

"Although we were on a tight budget when I was a youngster, we always had good food," recalls Brenda Risser of Willard, Ohio. "This comforting soup with soft dumplings was one of Mom's mainstays," she adds. At 82¢ a serving, it's still a bargain.

    This is surprisingly good--we make it often. It's a good, cheap staple--quite filling too. We occasionally add diced chicken or some frozen veggies just to add some variety.

    My Mom made this quite often when we were kids, but I had forgotten about it until I read this recipe. Thanks for the reminder, I know what I'm having for supper now!
