Oh, and let’s not forget that fresh chicken stock…

How to Make Autumn Essentials: Rustic Chicken Soup/Stew
- Chef’s Tip: If you want to add an additional level of flavor to this dish, then salt & pepper the chicken breasts, and sauté them in a bit of olive oil and sweet butter. When they are cooked, tear them into rustic pieces, and pour the liquid from the sauté pan into the pot, when you add the chicken stock in step 8.
- Dumplings: After you add the chicken, drop your dumplings on the top of the soup, cover, and allow to slowly simmer, for 10 to 12 minutes.

- Pasta: Get you favorite egg noodles and stir into the soup. Follow package directions as to how long the noodles need to cook.
If you are using homemade egg noodles (YUM) they will only need about 3 to 5 minutes in the liquid before they are cooked.
