Homemade Chicken + Dumplings Recipe


Is there anything more comforting than Chicken and Dumplings? Nothing feels like more of a warm hug than knowing a pot of Chicken and Dumplings is waiting for you in the kitchen.


Brimming with protein-packed chicken, sautéed vegetables, and light, fluffy dumplings, this thick, creamy, and nutritious soup is the perfect lunch or dinner your whole family will love any day of the week. Whip it up in about 30 minutes.


INGREDIENTS


FOR SOUP:

1 Tbsp. ghee (organic, grass-fed, if possible)

1 cup chopped onion (approx. 1½ medium)

½ cup chopped celery (approx. 1½ medium stalks)

½ cup chopped carrots (approx. 1 medium)

3 cloves garlic, finely chopped

2 cups low-sodium organic chicken broth

2 cups low-fat (1%) milk

¼ tsp. sea salt (or Himalayan salt)

¼ tsp. ground black pepper

3 Tbsp. cornstarch + 3 Tbsp. water (combine to make a slurry)

3 cups cooked shredded chicken breast

1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar

1 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley


FOR DUMPLINGS:

1 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour

¼ tsp. sea salt (or Himalayan salt)

¼ tsp. baking powder, gluten-free

1 large egg, lightly beaten

3 Tbsp. water


INSTRUCTIONS

1. Add ghee to a large soup pot and heat over medium-high heat until fragrant. Add onion, celery, carrots, and garlic; cook for 5 minutes, until vegetables begin to soften.

2. Add broth, milk, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil; reduce to a simmer and continue cooking while dumplings are made.

3. To make dumplings, stir together flour, salt, and baking powder in a medium mixing bowl. Add egg and water; stir until a loose dough forms.

4. Dollop tablespoon-sized lumps of dough directly into simmering soup. Cover and cook, 10 to 12 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center of a dumpling comes out clean.

5. Stir in cornstarch slurry and simmer, 1 minute, until soup thickens.

6. Stir in chicken, vinegar, and parsley.

7. Divide evenly among four bowls and serve immediately, or store refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
