Modified chicken and dumplings

Modified chicken and dumplings

Introduction

This is an adaptation of my mother's old comfort food recipe. Using less oil and subbing some of the flour with wheat bran helps shave the calories and up the fiber. And in lieu of her full fat gravy, I've opted for a low fat condensed cream of chicken soup. Look for a low sodium variety if you can find it.

Enjoy!
