Chicken sausage dumplings in noodle soup recipe
  • Meal Type

  • Courses


Dumplings are a fun way to add substance to a soup, and these are so simple to do. The dumplings will only take
about 4-5 minutes to cook so you can have this healthy comfort food on the table in less than 20 minutes. You can also make this a beef flavoured soup, using beef sausages.

Serves 4

  • 6 cups quality chicken stock
  • 1 stalk celery
  • 1 onion, finely sliced
  • 1 carrot, sliced into thin strips
  • 170-200g thin egg noodles
  • 4 chicken sausages
  • 2 large handfuls baby spinach leaves
  • Parsley
  • Soy sauce to taste
  1. Heat the chicken stock in a large saucepan, add the vegetables and noodles, cooking for 2 minutes.
  2. Squeeze the chicken meat from the sausages and, using slightly wet hands, roll into small balls (you should get about 6 from each sausage).
  3. Add the chicken dumplings to the chicken noodle soup and simmer for 5-8 minutes. The dumplings will all float to the surface. If you’re not sure whether they are cooked, try one yourself.
  4. Add the spinach for the last minute, cooking until wilted and bright green. Serve with plenty of chopped parsley and soy sauce to taste.
