Ever since I was a kid, I’ve always loved chicken & dumplings. For years, I never attempted to make it because it looked to be difficult & time intensive. That was until, I discovered my obsession with rotisserie chicken – it makes cooking with chicken easier, quicker & cleaner!
You will need:
Rotisserie chicken – pull amount of chicken you prefer in your soup (I don’t use a ton, as I prefer the dumplings & veggies over the chicken!)
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons flour
4 cups Savory Chicken Broth (I prefer Nature’s Promise Culinary Broth)
2 cups biscuit mix (I use Gluten-Free Bisquick)
1/2 cup milk (I use almond milk)
– Pull chicken and add to skillet over medium heat. Add 3 1/2 cups of water, cover & simmer for about 20 minutes.
-Remove chicken from water, BUT save the liquid and set aside.
-Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add carrots, celery & onion and cook approx. 5 minutes until soft.
-Sprinkle/coat veggies with flour, salt & pepper (to your taste). Cook for 3 minutes.
– Add broth and 2 cups of the chicken water to the pot. Bring to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes. Add chicken.
-Meanwhile, combine biscuit mix & milk in a bowl.
-Drop spoonfuls into the simmering soup (about 6 dumplings usually fit in my pot).
– Cover & cook for about 10 minutes.
Hope you enjoy it as much as we do! It’s great on a cold, yucky night and if you live in New England, I hear more snow is headed our way 🙁
