This is my favorite chili. You can add more water or have less water depending on the desired thickness. I typically don't use the flour that comes in the package, so this recipe didn't include it. Also, I use dry kidney beans instead of canned, so there may be a difference in nutritional value when using canned beans. If using dry beans, you need to soak overnight.

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!
