    1 chicken, boiled in water just to cover, 1 tsp. salt
    1 can chicken broth

    Cook chicken until tender. Bone and cut into bite size pieces. Skim fat from broth. You may need to add some chicken boullion if your broth does not have enough flavor. Add the chicken back to broth and bring to a boil. Meanwhile, in bowl add 1 1/2 c. while flour, 3 tsp. baking powder and .5 tsp. salt. Mix 3/4 c. milk, 3 Tbsp. olive oil and add to dry ingredients. Stir until moisten.

    When broth comes to a boil, drop a large tablespoons of dumplings into the broth. Reduce heat to low. Cover tightly. Simmer 12 min. DO NOT remove the lid.

    You can remove dumplings and thicken the broth but I have not included those calories in this recipe.


Serves 6-8.

  • I usually just buy a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store to make mine. Super easy to make, inexpensive to feed the family, tastes very very good! Highly recommended! - 11/12/13

  • Great recipe and keeps me on the right track with my meal plan. The only thing I did different is add some carrots, celery and gave it a boost. Good comfort food and not too many calories :-) - 12/1/09
