I LOVE chicken & dumplings so when I found this I added my own spin to it and lowered the fat and calories. This is the best chicken and dumplings I’ve ever had which is amazing since I’m never satisfied with my cooking!
1 4-pack Pillsbury Country Biscuits (red or blue pack)
3 cans Swanson Natural Goodness Chicken Broth
3 cans water
1 can Healthy Request Cream of Chicken 98% Fat Free (this is also low sodium)
1/2 cup skim milk
4 Chicken Breast halves (frozen)
Black pepper to taste
Makes about 10, 1 cup servings.
The 360 minutes of cooking time comes from using a crock pot to cook the chicken. (you don’t have to do it this way)
In large pot (I use an 8qt.) Boil the chicken breasts in the chicken broth and water.
Remove the chicken when done and shred with 2 forks, add back to broth. Add cream of chicken soup and milk, then bring back to boil.
Cut the biscuits into smaller pieces(I use a pizza cutter) 4 or 6 per biscuit and stir gradually into boiling broth. Once all the biscuits are in the broth reduce heat and simmer about 25 minutes, stirring often.
Add black pepper as desired.
