Chicken and dumplings question

Been a while since I made them. My grand mother made the best. One thing she used was a spice of some type that gave the broth a yellow tint and gave it a great taste. Does anyone know what it may have been. I can't fine anything in the store. If I don't remember it she always said it was expensive and she only used a little

Tybeeman, I agree - tumeric is used in many chicken/turkey dishes, and in soups it does give that lovely color.

Turmeric doesn't give it much taste though ...

And it isn't that expensive ...

But it does give great yellow/gold color.

Could it have been a spice mix? Maybe a Goya packet with saffron?

I guarantee that it was saffron. What's more expensive than that? In Lancaster, PA what we called chicken pot pie is what others call Chicken & Dumplings. I always use saffron in my (PA Dutch) chicken pot pie.
