Chicken soup has been known to cure everything from the sniffles of a cold to the sniffles from a broken heart. We love this simple recipe, which originally came to us with a serving size of 8 quarts—that’s 2 gallons. Put away your vat—this recipe serves just eight.
In a large soup pot, bring chicken stock to a gentle simmer. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
In a small bowl, beat egg.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Add egg to dry ingredients, mixing until just blended. Fold in parsley.
Drop batter carefully by tablespoons into gently simmering broth. Cover and cook 20 minutes; don’t lift the lid until it’s done.
