Chicken and Dumplings Low Carb

Elaine Bovender


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.

How to Make Chicken and Dumplings Low Carb


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Spread melted butter into a 9 X 13 casserole dish. Remove any skin and bone from cooked chicken and shred. Spread evenly in casserole dish with the butter. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and any other seasonings that you like.
  3. In a small mixing bowl, add baking mix and water. Mix together with your hands or a fork until you can form a soft dough. Using your hands, roll dough into a ball and pinch off teaspoon-sized pieces and space evenly over the chicken, leaving a couple of inches between your pieces.
  4. Whisk together chicken stock, cream of chicken soup, hot sauce and pepper. You may omit hot sauce and pepper, if you like.
  5. Pour stock mixture over the chicken and dumplings. Using a spoon, press the dumplings down into the soup, making sure that all dumplings are coated. Place in preheated oven and bake for 35 minutes or until golden brown.
  6. Here's the nutritional information for this dish.
