My stomach has not been too keen on all the spicy and acidic foods we have been eating lately. Tomato soup with pepper jack cheese. Homemade chili beans, which I made a little too spicy for my taste. Lazy man’s chile rellenos. And salsa, salsa, salsa on everything else. I was on a hot kick, and now I am paying for it. Chicken soup is just the remedy the doctor ordered.
CHICKEN SOUP WITH DUMPLINGS
Boil half a chicken with a generous amount of chopped carrots, celery, onions, and garlic. Add salt, pepper, and thyme to taste. When the chicken starts to fall off the bones, add some whole kernel corn and beans (frozen or canned). Mix up some Bisquick dumplings according to the directions on the box, except you can substitute sour cream for part of the milk. I used gluten-free Bisquick. Simmer with the lid on for at least half an hour, and then enjoy.
