Step 1

Cut the chicken into bite size pieces and then brown in a large pot with the onion powder, salt, and pepper. If you are using leftover chicken just skip this step and add the shredded chicken with the spices. Take the chicken out once it is no longer pink, and then add the chopped fresh veggies. Cook 5 to 7 minutes. Then add your broth, rosemary, and a cup or two of water to taste. Heat to simmering, then add the chicken back to the pot.

Step 2

Meanwhile, mix the flour, baking soda, milk, shortening, and a pinch of salt together in a separate bowl. Once dough forms, shape into teaspoon sized balls. Drop into the soup 10 minutes before you are ready to serve it.
