Quick and Easy Chicken and Dumpling

by - 12:32

Chicken and dumplings in 30 minutes makes for a quick and easy on a busy day feast. The trick to having this on the table in 30 minutes, is by using rotisserie chicken.  I’m certain, I don’t have to tell you how comforting a bowl of chicken and dumplings is after a long busy day. I was blessed to grow-up with this hearty dish as a regular rotation on the menu in my Mom’s kitchen. It’s Southern Comfort at it’s finest.


In heavy bottomed Dutch oven or large wide pot, over medium heat, add chicken broth, water, butter and all seasonings. Cover and bring to a boil.

Meanwhile, cut chicken breast into bite sized pieces. Add to soup mixture. Stir to combine and cover.

In a sealable container combine flour and milk. Seal tightly and shake vigorously to combine well. You will create a smooth flour mixture for thickening your sauce called a slurry. Slowly pour the slurry into broth, stirring constantly. Add frozen vegetables. Cover.

Combine dumpling ingredients in a medium bowl. Mix well with a fork. Remove cover from stew and stir well. Drop dumplings into stew one tablespoon at a time, use a 1 tablespoon scoop to make it even easier. Reduce heat to simmer, cover and cook for 10 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
