1 onion, chopped

3. In bowl, stir together biscuit baking mix and milk. Drop the mixture by spoonfuls into boiling broth.
4. Return to boil, reduce heat, and cook, covered, carefully stirring occasionally, 15-20 minutes or until dumplings are done. Season to taste. If soup is too thick, add more broth.
