This is something my mother cooked in the 1960s and 70s. It's a variation on hamburger hotdish, and an easy stove-top recipe. Embellish at will with sour cream, chiles, spices.

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!

Have you ever looked at the nutritional info on the back of a frozen chicken pot pie? You should.

Makes four servings

Really good way to satisfy your hearty meal craving without being too hearty on the calories and fat.

If you are really creative you can make this when you have leftover veggies and chicken!
**Add what ever 98% Fat Free Soup you like such as Cream of Mushroom, Cream of Celery, etc.
The sodium content on this is not with the low sodium soup I used. I will update it when I get a new can.

A tasty and very lean twist on classic comfort food. A lot like a Shake-n-Bake, only without all the weird ingredients. Low carb, Low fat, High taste! Uses no prefabricated ingredients other than old-fashioned bread.

Great source of potassium, B vitamins, and selenium.
