Easy Chicken
And Dumplings
Start to finish: 30 minutes
Servings: 2
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons water
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup cooked chicken, diced
1/4 teaspoon salt
Dash freshly ground black
pepper
For the dumplings:
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
Dash freshly ground black
pepper
1/3 cup milk
In a medium skillet, whisk together the water and flour until smooth. Slowly stir in the broth, then heat over medium, stirring constantly until thickened. Add the chicken, salt and pepper. Cover and reduce heat to low.

Meanwhile, make the dumplings. In a small bowl combine the flour, baking powder, salt and pepper. Stir in the milk until the mixture forms a thick batter.

Drop the batter on top of the chicken a tablespoon at a time. Cover and cook on low for 15 minutes, or until the dumplings are cooked, about 5 to 7 minutes.
