Sweet Potato Chicken and Mustard Dumplings

Tiffany Bannworth


This is a healthier version of a Southern favorite.

Make the sauce as thick or thin as you desire.

This can even be served as a stew with a couple of spoonfuls of rice added.

Remember to make the same day as my
Harvest Corn Sweet Potato Bread.

How to Make Sweet Potato Chicken and Mustard Dumplings


  • 1In a large pot with a lid, place the chicken and diced sweet potatoes. Bring to a boil then drop the temperature to medium. Cover with a lid.
  • 2When chicken is fully cooked, scoop out chicken and debone. Shred and add back to the pot.
  • 3Add the rest of the vegetables. Cook for 20 minutes.
  • 4Add the rest of the chicken and vegetable ingredients, incorporate well. Lower heat to medium low.
  • 5In a mixing bowl, make the dumpling batter, should be fairly thick. With oil hands, roll into little balls, the largest size being maybe a ping pong ball. Place in pot.
  • 6Cook for ten more minutes with lid on, then remove lid and reduce down to the desire thickness you like your sauce.
  • 7This can be served over rice or even cheddar mashed potatoes.

    I like to make this the same time I bake my
    Harvest Corn Sweet Potato Bread.

    That way I am dicing sweet potatoes all on the same day. The sweetness of the bread really complements this dish.
