Dumplings I grew up with were not what I would call “noodles” or “pillows” but basically biscuits steamed on top of a soup that includes not only chicken, but vegetables also.
Soup is a favorite around here. When the cold northeastern Nevada wind brings snow, soup is a warming meal. Here is one of our favorites, Corn and Cheddar Chowder. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
