How to Prepare Our Diet Chicken & Dumpling Recipe

Add about 1 quart of water to a deep 2-quart pot. Add 1 Tablespoon of olive oil which will help prevent sticking.

Next, add 1 cup of cubed raw chicken (white or dark meat - no skin and no bones).

While the chicken is cooking - and it will cook quite swiftly, mix the following in a small, deep bowl with a spoon.

1 1/2 cups of low fat baking mix

1 teaspoon of dried parsley

1/2 cup of skim milk (use more if dough is too thick AND if dough is too thin, simply add a bit more baking mix)

Mix until a dough forms, then use hands to form balls (dumplings) about the size of a golf ball.

Add 3 chicken bouillon cubes to the pot containing the chicken, then carefully add the dumplings one at a time.

Cook on low for 10 minutes or until dumplings are cooked through and through.

Dumplings will float at the top of the pot while cooking and by the end of the 10 minutes, a thick gravy will have formed.

The gravy will get a bit thicker after pot is removed from the stove top.

The entire pot contains about 1,000 calories and contains 4 - 6 generous servings.
