Chicken and Dumplings

For tips on this dish, I knew as my mom, who ended up giving me my grandma’s recipes Chicken & Dumplings. It’s as hand-me-down as it comes, and it immediately made me think of my early life. This smooth recipe is ideal on a cold night and simple sufficient to make whilst you don’t feel like making something. If you want an excellent simpler direction, we have the correct slow-cooker model, too!

Chicken and Dumplings

Chicken and Dumplings


2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
large onion, chopped
medium carrots, peeled and diced
stalk celery, chopped
1 tsp. dried oregano

Kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

cloves garlic, minced
6 c. low-sodium chicken broth
boneless skinless chicken thighs
boneless skinless chicken breasts

Freshly chopped parsley, for serving

1 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1 tbsp. baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
large egg
2/3 c. buttermilk

  2. Add broth, chicken, and thyme to the pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until chicken is cooked through 10 minutes. Remove chicken and shred with two forks.
  3. While the soup is simmering, make dumplings: In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. Make a well in the flour and add egg, buttermilk, and melted butter and whisk with a fork until combined.
  4. Add shredded chicken and heavy cream to pot, then return to a simmer. Drop spoonfuls of dumpling mix into the pot, cover and cook on low until dumplings are cooked through about 5 minutes.
