5 from 19 reviews


This Chicken and Dumplings Recipe has a delectable twist to it.  The chicken is lightly breaded and seasoned before adding it to the stew creating depth and exceptional flavor.





  1. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in large skillet over medium heat. Saute veggies until onions start to brown on edges; approximately 3-4 minutes. Add the parsley, onion powder and poultry seasoning. Remove from heat.
  2. Heat 5 cups low sodium chicken broth in large saucepan. Add veggies and cook for an additional 10-15 minutes.
  3. Combine the 3 tablespoons melted butter and 3 tablespoons flour to make roux. Add the roux to the broth mixture 1 tablespoon at a time and stirring well with whisk. The broth should start to thicken fairly quickly.
  4. Salt & pepper both sides of the chicken. Mix egg and milk in shallow bowl. Dip each piece of chicken in the egg mixture then in the flour. Repeat back in the egg mixture and then in flour. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil & 1 tablespoon butter in skillet and brown all sides of the chicken. Remove from heat and place in oven on warm.
  5. For dumplings mix flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Cut in butter with pastry cutter. When crumbly add milk and stir just until combined. Drop by small spoonfuls into simmering stew. Cover and cook for 15 minutes without removing the lid.
  6. Slice chicken and serve right in the bowl next to the dumpling stew.
