- 2 Tbsp oil
- 4 Tbsp water, milk or milk substitute
- 2 Tbsp fresh herbs, e.g. thyme, oregano, rosemary optional
Brown chicken in the oil until golden brown. Then add onion, garlic, celery and carrot. Stir until the vegetables are softened. Add water, bring to boil then cover and reduce heat to simmer.
Add herbs, salt and pepper. Continue simmering for about 30 – 40 minutes.
As soup simmers, prepare the dumplings.
Remove the chicken from the soup, place on a board and tear or cut into smaller pieces.
Bring soup to a boil. Drop in dumplings one at a time, then turn the heat down to simmer.
Return chicken to the soup. Cover and simmer for about 10 minutes, occasionally covering the dumplings with the broth. (Do not overcook!)
Prepare Chebe mix according to package directions (do not add cheese). Add herbs if desired.
Knead dough with hands until smooth.
Pull small bits from the dough (nickel to quarter size – they will expand) and set aside until ready to place in the soup.
There should be dough left over. Shape into rolls or breadsticks and bake according to package instructions. A great accompaniment to the soup!
