To make this soup, combine three cups of chopped, cooked chicken breast, two eggs, 3/4 cup of chicken broth, one cup of all-purpose flour, and 1/4 cup fresh, chopped parsley in a blender or food processor. Add two teaspoons salt, 1/8 teaspoon black pepper and1/2 teaspoon dried tarragon. Blend all ingredients until they are smooth.

Next, bring four cups of chicken broth to a boil in a large pot. Drop rounded spoonfuls of the dumpling mixture into the boiling broth. Simmer uncovered for five to eight minutes, until the dumplings are slightly browned. Remove them with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Set aside the cooking liquid.

Melt 1/4 cup butter in a large pot over a medium heat. Cook two cups of chopped onion, one-and-a-half cups of thinly-sliced celery and two cloves of minced garlic until the onion is translucent. Stir in 1/2 cup flour and two quarts of chicken broth, bringing the mixture to a boil. Add one-and-a-half teaspoons of salt and one-and-a-half cups of chopped carrots. Cover and simmer for fifteen minutes.

Finally, stir in the dumplings and reserved liquid, along with three cups of chopped cooked chicken. Simmer for fifteen minutes and serve.
