Chicken Soup for Tabby

Tabby, this entry is for you.
I made some homemade chicken noodle soup for my great whitetail hunter man to take in his thermos. Like he says, "There is nothing better than a thermos of hot soup when you are hunting." Here is a picture of all of ingedients.

1 whole store-bought roast chicken
2 tablespoons vertable oil
1 chopped onion
6 cans (14 ounces) chicken broth
1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
chopped carrots
chopped celery
1 can (10.5 ounce) condensed chicken gravy
This last ingerdient is your choice I used noodles.
Noodles OR 1 can (16.3 ounces) golden buttermilk biscuit dough

Remove skin from chicken and shred into large pieces. Set aside.

In a small frying pan, add vegetable oil and heat over medium heat. When oil is hot, add chopped onions and saute until soft.

In a large pot, add broth, poultry seasoning, salt, pepper, carrots, celery and sauteed onions. Bring to a boil. Reduce to simmer for about 10 minutes to soften vegetables. If you are using noodles add them now so they can cook also. Next add the chicken. Continue to simmer.

If you are using the dumplings instead of noodles this is when you make the dumplings. Open the can and remove the biscuits. On a lightly floured surface, roll each biscuit to 1/4-inch thick. With a knife, cut each biscuit into 4 pieces. Set aside.

Stir in chicken gravy. With the stew still simmering over low heat, stir in dunplings a few at a time. Once all dumplings are int eh pot, cover with a tight fitting lid and cook for 10 minutes.

Ladel into bowl and serve piping hot.

Don't you love this last line. Serve piping hot?? Like I am going to eat cold soup? But we have to follow the recipe right?

Here is the finished product.... I had to eat a bowl myself after all this work and you can't have a bowl of homemade soup without a homemade bun right!! YUM!!
