Chicken & Dumplings

Submitted by: MHOFFMA35

Introduction

My kids love Cracker Barrel's Chicken & Dumplings - they always clean their plates so this is my attempt at a lower fat version. My kids love Cracker Barrel's Chicken & Dumplings - they always clean their plates so this is my attempt at a lower fat version.

Ingredients

    Rotissie Chicken (about 2 cups, shredded)
    4 cups of Swanson 99%, lower sodium Chicken Broth
    1 med. onion, diced
    1/2 Tbsp. Smart Balance Buttery Spread
    * dash of Frank's Red Hot in the broth

    Dumplings:
    1.5 cups of Bisquick - HeartSmart (leave about 1/3 cup out to knead in as needed)
    1 Tbsp. Smart Balance Buttery Spread
    1/2 cup of skim milk
    dash of salt
    dash of celery salt

Directions

To make the dumplings - cut the butter spread into the bisquick until it resembles crumbs, then add the milk until it forms a ball (if it is sticky, add bisquick until it can be kneaded without sticking - I accounted for this in the nutrition info). Once it is smooth and no longer sticky, roll out into an oval until about 1/2 inch think. Cut into dumplings (I use a pizza cutter and make them pretty small).

Saute onion in 1/2 Tbsp. butter spread until tender, add chicken broth and bring to a rolling bowl. Gradually drop the dumplings into the broth, stirring constantly so that they do not stick together. Allow to cook for a few minutes, but turn down the heat. Once the dumplings looked cooked, add the chicken and continue to cook on med-low heat until ready to serve. Delicious!
