COOK TIME

A few lighter ingredients and a lifestyle centered around moderation are all it takes to still enjoy a hearty recipe like Lighter Chicken and Dumplings. Packing all the comforting tastes and textures we crave, with some easy-on-the-waistline substitutes, this one's a keeper.

What You'll Need:
  • 2 celery stalks, sliced
  • 2 fresh carrots, cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 1 small onion, coarsely chopped
  • 5 1/4 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 cups cubed cooked chicken breast
  • 1 2/3 cups reduced-fat biscuit baking mix
  • 2/3 cup reduced-fat-free milk
What To Do:
  1. In a soup pot coated with cooking spray, saute, celery, carrots, and onion for 5 minutes. Stir in broth, poultry seasoning, and pepper.; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer, then stir in chicken.
     
  2. In a large bowl, combine biscuit mix and milk. Drop by tablespoonfuls into simmering broth. Cover and simmer 10 to 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into a dumpling comes out clean. Do not lift cover while simmering! Ladle in to bowls to serve immediately.
