Chicken-n-Naan Dumplings

Lori McLain


We love chicken and dumplings, but sometimes you have to have it ready fast ! I came up with a simple basic base and then added my favorite naan flatbreads, cut into dumpling sized pieces. The tasty puffy naan soak up the delicious chicken and veggies and get a thumbs up from my family and neighbors.
