Lighter Chicken and Dumplings Recipe
A reduced fat rendition benefits from plenty of vegetables and a gravy derived from low fat soups.
I changed this recipe to be more like chicken and dumpling soup. I added to cans of soup and two cans of broth. I also added 1/2 cup of rice. I also made the recipe in only 1/2 an hour. I first started cooking the chicken. As the chicken cooked I mixed the soup ingredients together and started them boiling. When the chicken finished, I threw that in. I continued cooking the soup and started making the dumplings than finished off the recipe as she said. Guaranteed to take 1/2 an hour. Much better than 1 1/2 hours! This is going to be something I make often.
Fabulous recipe, very easy, the broth is just perfect. One thing I want to add, for people who are new to making dump;ings (most recipes for dumplings aren't newbie-friendly) is make sure your dumpling mixture is a wet-sticky dough. If you make the dough too dry and pliable, your dumplings will come out too chewey, A sticly-wet dough will make a soft, fluffy and delicious dumpling. Unforunately I learned this through experimentation and not the recipe!
This was a very good recipe and very easy to make. Only thing was that the soup to dumpling ratio seemed to be off. Not enough soup in my opinion. I'll be adding more broth next time. Thanks for this one!
This CD recipe turned out creamy and delish! If you follow the directions on the back of the can on how to make it as soup it works out just fine...it thickens as it cooks with the dough. Half water (or chicken broth) half milk, wah-lah!
Okay I had one of those moments, I have two chicken and dumpling recipes. Although I am sure this is great I didn't make this just reviewed the wrong recipe so please just disregaurd my review of this recipe, lol.
This is the best! I added sliced mushrooms and a little thyme to the chicken. Family gobbled it up!
Absolutely fantastic recipe. I'm not much of a cook; I'm the baker in the family and my husband cooks. But he wasn't feeling well so I wanted to make him something easy and delicious and comforting. I've never made a dish similar to this, and I expected it to be difficult, but it was very easy to make, and an absolute hit. I omitted the celery seed; otherwise I followed the recipe as written. The whole family loved it. My one criticism: I would double the soup for a family of four. There were enough dumplings but we needed more liquid.
This was great even the grandkids loved it. I thicken the sauce at the end, otherwise it is a keeper and will be made again and again.
