chicken and dumpling soup

Chicken left overs from a roast.
Carrots x 4
potatoes x2

Boil chicken in water that just covers the carcass when it has boiled and the chicken meat can come off easily you can set aside until it is cooled. You can then take the meat off and drain the water into a bowl. keep the water and the meat discarding the bones.

boil potatoes and carrots.

add chicken meat and chicken waterto the boiled veg and its water.

I like to add garlic x 2 cloves, pepper just a small pinch and an onion peeled and sliced. You can add dried herbs or spices.

I like to add 1/4 tsp termeric as it is good for healing and a few italian dried herbs.

Boil again and if you like add some dumpllings to make a soup a meal.

Dumplings can be made using 2oz Suet and 4oz selfraising flour. boil in soup for 30 mins adding plenty extra water as needed.
