THIS chicken and dumpling recipe right here is my favorite Fall to Winter, cold-weather, overall comfort food. It’s a meal I have been wanting to share with y’all for some time now. Served warm, it is creamy, rich, and freaking delicious. Not to mention, this chicken and dumpling recipe is SOOO simple to make (and with very little clean-up). The recipe is based on the one my sister and I learned in Home Ec in high school. The changes I have made to the original chicken and dumpling recipe were simply made by researching the nutritional values of the ingredients to make this Chicken and Dumpling recipe the lowest calories, highest protein, AND best tasting possible!
The important things to note are the use of 98% fat-free soup and the Low Carb tortillas from Trader Joe’s. The ratios of calories to protein in the tortilla, and the overall decrease in calories in the lower fat soup are SUBSTANTIAL and really benefit the chicken and dumpling recipe.
Cooked exactly as shown in the video, each 1 cup serving is 209 calories and 14 grams of protein. You can further alter this (to be even better for you) by doing any of the following:
Use 98% Fat Free Cream of Chicken soup instead of regular.
Add another small or large can of shredded chicken.
Only use 3/4 of a stick of butter versus the whole stick. I choose not to do this purely for the fat flavor benefit (yummy)!
