Tasty Tuesday: Chicken & Dumplings

A super-easy recipe for classic chicken & dumplings from Aubrey's kitchen!

The Ingredients:

  • 1 pkg frozen dumplings (available in the bread freezer section)
  • 5-6 cups chicken broth
  • 1-2 cups cooked chicken, cubed (or canned chicken)
  • salt & pepper to taste

The Directions:

Bring chicken broth to a boil. Drop dumplings in boiling broth one at a time. Mix & lower heat. Cover & simmer for 1 hour or until desired consistency is reached. Stir in cooked chicken, salt & pepper.

*tips from Aubrey: remember the key to great dumplings is time... let them simmer on low for a good long while. Also remember that as they cool, they'll continue to thicken. 

*note from Aubrey: For quick & easy chicken broth, I like using Better than Bouillon. Super-easy to just keep in the fridge & then I can just make as much broth as I need for a recipe, without having to throw away 1/2 can of broth. It's pricey ($6-7), but in the long run I think it's cheaper than cans. Plus it tastes better to me & I can add flavor to recipes without having to add all the water.
