Recipe Ingredients for Chicken and Dumplings (M & B)

4 cups chicken broth
3 cups water
2 lbs chicken breast, meat only
2 tsp thyme
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 1/2 cups diced carrots
1 1/2 cups chopped celery
1 cup diced onion
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons light butter
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 large egg

Recipe Directions for Chicken and Dumplings (M & B)

  1. Combine first 5 ingedients in a large Dutch oven over medium high heat; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer uncovered for 15 minutes or until chicken is done. Remove pan from heat and remove chicken from broth; cool slightly. Strain broth through a sieve into a large bowl; discard solids. Remove chicken and chop into bite sized pieces. Set chicken aside.

  2. Heat oil in pan over medium high heat. Add carrots, celery, onion, and garlic; saute 6 minutes or until onion is tender. Add reserved broth mixture and 1/2 teaspoon salt; simmer 10 minutes. Discard thyme sprigs; keep warm.

  3. To prepare dumplings, lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine 1.25 cups flour, rosemary, baking powder, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Cut in Smart Balance with 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Combine buttermilk and egg, stirring with a whisk. Add buttermilk mixture to flour mixture, stirring just until combined.

  4. Return chopped chicken to the broth mixture; bring to a simmer over medium high heat. Combine 1/4 cup flour with 1/4 cup water, stirring with a whisk until well blended to form a slurry. Add flour mixture to pan; simmer 2 minutes. Drop the dumpling dough, 1 tablespoon per dumpling, onto chicken mixture to form 12 dumplings. Cover and cook 7 minutes (do not let broth boil).
