IntroductionAn improvised old-fashioned chicken and dumplings recipe, more like dumplings and chicken. The dumplings cook up dense, chewy, and very tasty.

2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp chopped garlic
1 large onion
6 oz cooked roast chicken
6 cups low-sodium organic chicken broth
12 oz frozen mixed vegetables
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp thyme
2 cups all-purpose flour plus 1/4 cup, divided
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup 50/50 butter blend
Place set-aside 1/4 cup flour in a large bowl or ziploc plastic bag. Coat chicken pieces in set-aside flour and add chicken pieces to oil/onion mixture a little at a time while stirring. Add chicken broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer and add frozen vegetables, pepper and thyme. Sprinkle the remaining set-aside flour from bowl or bag into the soup a little at a time, and stir to dissolve after each addition.
While chicken broth mixture begins simmering:
Mince set-aside onion. Mix 2 cups flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar. Cut in butter blend with a pastry blender until it forms a coarse meal. Make a well in the center. Mix buttermilk with minced onion and pour into the well, then stir with a fork until moistened.
Turn out onto floured board and knead 7-8 times until it forms an elastic ball.
For drop dumplings:
Pinch off small pieces and drop into simmering soup.
For rolled dumplings:
Roll out dough to 1/8" thick and cut with a small cookie cutter or knife into 1"x2" pieces. Drop dumplings into simmering soup.
Cover and continue simmering for 15 minutes. Serve hot.
