Very Good 4.5/5
(180 ratings)

I LOVE chicken & dumplings so when I found this I added my own spin to it and lowered the fat and calories. This is the best chicken and dumplings I've ever had which is amazing since I'm never satisfied with my cooking! You can have a full cup of this hearty comfort food for only 284 calories and 3.8 grams of fat! The sodium could be reduced if homemade biscuits are used instead of the canned biscuits, but if sodium isn't a problem this is a very fast and easy way to make chicken & dumplings!

I got the idea for this recipe from the Hungry Girl 200 reciepes for under 200 cal cookbook, just substituting chicken for tilapia. It was soooo good and takes care of the BBQ and sweet cravings in one shot. My kids even loved it. Hey, it got a picky three year old to eat...

This chicken is literally falling off the bone when it's finished. It's supposed to mimic the taste of rotisserie chicken.

My husband and I made this modified version of an old favorite with less salt than most recipes require. There are only two of us so there were plenty of leftovers. The potatoes get soaked in the juices from the chicken, so you may want to rinse them off before eating unless you want some extra chicken fat! You can leave the potatoes out and just substitute balled up aluminum foil in the bottom to avoid this.

Stuffed green bell peppers from Mom's recipe..a great Sunday meal!

Note: You can use ground beef instead of ground turkey, but the nutritional facts will be different--the facts posted are for turkey. I find they taste just as good with the turkey.
