Put all the ingredients in a large pot and cook.

Homemade Chicken Soup

The vegetables will be cooked before the meat (check it with your fork, if it comes in easily then it’s done), so after it’s cooked remove it from the pot and continue to cook meat some more. When the meat is done too, sift soup in another pot and boil. In the meantime prepare the dumplings.

For the dumplings

Beat 1 egg white, then stir in 1 egg yolk, some parsley leaves and gradually stir in 70-100 g semolina. When soup boils, reduce heat and take amounts of 1 tsp of mixture and place in a pot. Cook until soft.

Dill Sauce

For the sauce

Slightly heat 2 Tbsp oil and add 3 Tbsp corn starch dissolved in cold water. Stir continuously. Pour in 200 ml soup and 1 tsp chopped dill and 2 Tbsp sour cream (20% milk fat). Rinfleš are actually vegetables and meat that used to cook soup. It’s always served with either this or tomato sauce.

    Those dumplings remind me of my mom… she’s got a similar German recipe that’s the ultimate comfort food for me. YUM!

    I’m having this for lunch tomorrow, albeit with dill sauce. It’s such a Sunday lunch, though.

    this looks so good – more a winter dish, but i just discovered it. the dumplings are like our good old Bavarian Griessnockerl, which I love.
