It's so easy to become bored with broiled/baked meats and veggies when you're following a low-carb lifestyle. I decided to try to make low-carb chicken and dumplings. These are definitely not the traditional chicken and dumplings that we all know and love, but it's a very good dish in it's own right. It's a hearty meal when you're watching your carbs and it's a break from the traditional low-carb plain meats/veggies. It has only 264 calories and 6 net carbs per serving, so you can enjoy without guilt! The nutritional information is in the instructions section below.
