WTE Wednesday – (Rotisserie) Chicken & Dumplings

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

Diced carrots

Diced celery

Diced onion

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 🙁
