Homemade Chicken and Dumplings recipe from Rapid Rotisserie Chicken Chapter in KITCHEN 101

With rotisserie chicken, canned broth and drop dumplings, my homemade Chicken and Dumplings recipe becomes an effortless one-dish meal.

Makes 8 (1-cup) servings

1 onion, chopped
1 1/2 cups baby carrots
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
6 cups fat-free chicken broth, divided
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
2 cups chopped skinless rotisserie chicken breast
2 cups biscuit baking mix
2/3 cup skim milk

1. In large nonstick pot coated with nonstick cooking spray, sauté onion, carrots, and garlic over medium heat until tender.
2. In small cup, stir flour and 1/3 cup chicken broth, mixing until smooth. Gradually add flour mixture and remaining broth to pot; bring to boil. Add thyme and chicken.
3. In bowl, stir together biscuit baking mix and milk. Drop the mixture by spoonfuls into boiling broth.
4. Return to boil, reduce heat, and cook, covered, carefully stirring occasionally, 15-20 minutes or until dumplings are done. Season to taste. If soup is too thick, add more chicken broth.

Terrific Tip: A short-cut for dumplings: cut flaky biscuits into fourths and drop into boiling broth or you can even use flour tortillas cut into fourths. You can slice carrots — but I find baby carrots a time-saver.
