Chicken and Dumplings

(serves 4)


300 g chicken, boneless skinless
1 ½ C chicken broth
¼ t thyme
1/8 t pepper
¼ C onion, chopped
3 carrots, chopped
300 g frozen mixed vegetables
1 C whole wheat flour
2 t baking powder
1 egg
1 T olive oil
¼ C skim milk
1/8 t salt
1/8 t pepper


In a skillet, add chicken, onions, thyme, and pepper and cook until the chicken is no longer pink. Add carrots and simmer 10 minutes more. Add frozen mixed vegetables and simmer five minutes more.

Remove chicken and vegetables and cover to keep warm. Leave the broth simmering in the pan.

In small bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, salt, and pepper. In another small bowl blend egg, milk, and olive oil. Add the liquid mix to the dry and stir until just moistened – do not over stir.

Drop the flour mixture (the dumplings!) by teaspoonfuls on top of the hot chicken broth in the pan. Cover and simmer until dumplings are cooked completely. Add the chicken and vegetables back to the pan and heat through. Enjoy!
