Place stock and shredded chicken in soup pot. Bring to a low boil.
FOR DUMPLINGS: Mix four and spices together in a large bowl. Slowly add in stock, about 1 c. at a time, mixing in flour, until you can roll or pat into a ball. Knead for about 5 min. Divide dough into smaller portions and roll out by hand or using a pasta roller. Roll dough to thicken you desire.
Place in pot of simmer chicken and stock. Let cook for about 20 min. or until dough is cooked through.
If liquid is not thick enough, mix 1 c. of cold water with 1/4 c. of cornstarch. Mix well to remove all lumps. Add to broth. Let simmer for about 10 min. Repeat step if thicker broth is desired.
Re-season with salt and pepper to taste.
