The dumplings in this chicken dumpling soup recipe are made out of Farina cereal (wheat cereal)! This is a recipe from my German-Saxon childhood 75 years ago. It sounds strange to make dumplings out of wheat cereal but believe me everyone who tries it wants the recipe.

How To Make Farina Dumpling Soup

For Chicken broth:

  • carrots (chopped)
  • water
  • celery (chopped)
  • onion (chopped)
  • chicken

For Dumplings:

  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 pinch baking powder
  • 1/2 cup wheat cereal (i.e. plain Cream of Wheat or Farina)
  1. Cook chicken in water with carrots, celery and onion. When chicken is tender remove and drain. Save broth, carrots and chicken.
  2. Cut chicken in bite-size pieces and add to broth. Make dumplings by mixing dumpling ingredients and rolling into balls, making sure they are not too stiff but firm.
  3. While broth/chicken is boiling, add dumplings by the tablespoons. Boil for 5 minutes. Now give dumplings a shock by adding one cup of cold water. Put lid on and simmer for about 15 minutes (until dumplings are fluffy and not stiff inside). Add the cooked carrots if desired.
