Chicken Noodle and Dumpling Soup

Chicken noodle dumpling soup is a comfort food. Serve it in lunch or dinner. I use maggi noodle which is a very popular noodle brand in India. And the dumplings that I made is actually called momos. So you can say it's a chicken maggi momo soup also.

This chicken noodle and dumpling soup is my kids  favorite. As they don't like much veggies, I made it simple by adding only chicken pieces. But if you like, you can add carrot, spinach, broccoli etc. You can serve it in lunch or dinner. But as we Indians like to have rice or roti in lunch or dinner,  I serve this chicken noodle and dumpling soup in breakfast.

I use maggi noodle which is a very popular noodle brand in India. And the dumplings that I made are actually called momos. So you can say it's a chicken maggi momo soup also.

I generally use wheat flour instead of all purpose flour because wheat flour is more healthy than all purpose flour. But you can use any flour of your choice.
