Some foods feel like a hug from the inside, and the Paleo Chicken and Dumpling Soup recipe is one of them.

It is the ultimate comfort food, but it is good for you, too. It is completely gluten-free and doesn’t contain any inflammatory ingredients. And if you are following an AIP diet, just be sure to omit the black pepper.

And a quick tip about cooking, after you drop in the dumpling better, do not stir the soup until the dumplings are completely cooked. 

Another tip, feel free to use slightly less chicken broth for a thicker, chunkier soup.
