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!Submitted by STEPH2003
I came up with this recipe one night when I had only a few ingredients in the fridge and needed to find a way to make them into a meal. These surprised me with how delicious they are. Submitted by BLUESUNSHINEFL
I see so many delicious varities of this. You can even take your basil and sundried tomatoe and make a nice
Pesto sauce. I like to grill my chicken. And cut it in thin strips. And place my sundried tomatoe/feta cheese mixture on top with a drizzle of balsamic vinegrette. And eat is as an Appetizer or over a bed of baby greens. I am even thinking of eating this in
a whole wheat wrap or even a crossiant,but I have not tried it that way as of yet,but you cna always get creative with this. Submitted by TACHANA
These come out very moist. I found this on the back of a grocery store ad and made a few changes. The original called for 2 tsp of Thyme, 1/4 c of Parmesan, & 2 c of cornflakes. I measured after I dipped and found I had a good 1/2 c of mixture left so I cut the recipe back accordingly.
* For those of you that are salt restricted- You might want to leave out the salt as there's probably enough in the Parmesan cheese. I just sprinkled a little salt over the bowl.
I also extended the cooking time. The original time was 20 mins.Submitted by NANADEB49
It's a beach wedding because of the pasta shells.
I've always had a taste bud defect of only liking creamy soups. Thankfully, fat free half & half adds creaminess just as well as heavy cream. Submitted by BLUESUNSHINEFL
This is a quick supper. I came up with when I had way too much purchased (bagged) spinach on my hands. You could add a cooked, diced chicken breast to the mix if you choose.Submitted by HUMBLEDAISY
Pizza is one of my favorite foods, and the sweet sauce at Papa John's is my all-time favorite. My viewpoint is, if you're going to make it at home, don't make it "just as good," make it better! So I'm remaking a medium Papa John's pie with pineapple, onion and bacon(BACON!!!). Fresh homemade sauce and premium ingredients make this recipe more than worth the calories, and still trimmer than the fast food original!Submitted by KRAMTHEGRAM
