Chicken and Dumplings

Posted: Updated:

Chicken and Dumplings is a hearty soup that you can enjoy as a meal-starter or a main dish.

Serves: 6

Cooking Time: 30 min


What You'll Need:

3 celery stalks, sliced

2 carrots, sliced

8 cups chicken broth (see Note)

1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

2 cups biscuit baking mix (see Note)

2/3 cup milk (see Note)

3 cups chopped cooked chicken


What To Do:

1. Coat a soup pot with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. Add celery and carrots; saute 6 minutes, or until tender. Stir in broth, poultry seasoning, and pepper; bring to a boil.

2. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, stir together biscuit mix and milk until blended. Turn dough out onto a heavily floured surface; roll or pat dough to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut into 1- x 3-inch strips.

3. Drop strips one at a time into boiling broth. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer 8 to 10 minutes, or until dumplings are cooked through, stirring occasionally. Add chicken and stir until heated through, 3 to 4 additional minutes. Serve immediately.


Note: You can lighten up this Southern classic without sacrificing taste. Substitute low-sodium fat-free chicken broth, reduced-fat biscuit baking mix, and fat-free milk for their regular counterparts.
