chicken and dumplings

Who says comfort foods are only for winter? It may be hot outside, but there are still some days that I want a food that makes me feel homey and happy.

This chicken and dumplings recipe is great for when I’m feeling nostalgic. It’s really easy, doesn’t require a ton of ingredients, and it uses canned biscuits. Dinner will be ready in no time.

Chicken and Dumplings

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 1 cup diced carrots
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 32 oz carton chicken broth
  • 1 can refrigerated biscuits
  • 2 cups cooked and shredded chicken

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan (or in a stockpot) over medium heat, heat the olive oil. Add the onions, celery, carrots, and salt and pepper to taste. Cook until soft and onions begin to turn translucent, about 5 minutes.
  2. Sprinkle in the flour and stir continuously until the flour cooks and turns a blonde color, about 1-2 minutes. Slowly whisk in the chicken broth and continue whisking until everything is smooth and there are no clumps of flour left. Bring to a boil.
  3. Remove the biscuits from the can and gently flatten them using either your hands or a rolling pin. Cut the biscuits into small pieces (about 6 per biscuit) and add them to the pot.
  4. Add the cooked chicken, reduce to a simmer, and cover. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 15-20 minutes or until the dumplings are soft. Serve hot.
