Ingredients

Why is this one of our favorite chicken soups? Maybe because of the homemade dumplings that are swimming in it. Chicken and Dumplings is a hearty soup that you can enjoy as a meal-starter or a main dish.

Serves: 6

 
Ingredients
  •  
  • 3 celery stalks, sliced
  • 2 carrots, sliced
  • 8 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups biscuit baking mix
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 3 cups chopped cooked chicken
  •  
  •  
  •  

Directions

 
  1. Coat a large Dutch oven with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. Add celery and carrots, and sauté 6 minutes, or until tender. Stir in broth, poultry seasoning, and pepper; bring to a boil.
     
  2. Meanwhile, 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" strips.
     
  3. Drop strips, one at a time, into boiling broth; stir in chicken. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 8 minutes, stirring occasionally.
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.
