Irish Chicken and Dumplings

Irish Chicken and Dumplings

WebMD Recipe

I've been told Chicken and Dumplings is Irish comfort food at its best. Here is the "Recipe- Doctored" version … lighter in calories and fat grams, but still comforting.

  • 2 cans (10.75 ounces each)
    reduced-fat cream of chicken soup, condensed
  • 3 cups
  • 1 cup
    sliced or chopped celery
  • 2 medium
    coarsely chopped onions
  • 1/2 teaspoon
    salt (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon
    poultry seasoning
  • skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 4 whole
    sliced carrots (about 4 cups)
  • 1/2 cup
    frozen green peas
  • 2 large
    potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch slices, then quartered
  • 1 1/2 cups
    reduced-fat baking mix
  • 1/3 cup
    low-fat buttermilk
  • 1/3 cup
    fat-free half-and-half, or low-fat milk
  1. In large saucepan, add condensed soup, water, celery, salt if desired, onions, poultry seasoning, pepper, chicken breasts potatoes and carrots. Bring to boil, reduce heat to simmer and cover pan. Simmer over low heat about 30 minutes.
  2. Remove chicken from the saucepan, shred it into bite-sized pieces (or break up into pieces in saucepan using a spatula) and return to saucepan and stir in the peas.
  3. Add baking mix, buttermilk, and fat free half-and-half to medium-sized bowl and blend to make a soft dough. Drop dough by tablespoonfuls into the simmering stew. Cover pan and simmer about 20 minutes. Uncover pan and simmer 10 minutes more. Serve hot!
