Hubby, son and friends love this recipe! This is a quick, easy and very delicious comfort-food recipe where everything is cooked in one pot/pan in stages. I don't remember where the original recipe came from, but I have tweaked it somewhat a few times over the years. Try it, you'll like it!

Ingredients

  • INGREDIENTS FOR CHICKEN & SAUCE:

  • 4
    tbsp. butter
  • 1
    large onion cut into thick slices; then cut the slices in half and separate
  • 3/4
    tsp. dried thyme
  • 1/4
    cup flour
  • 1
    can reduced-sodium chicken broth (14.5 oz.)
  • 2
    pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into roughly 1" x 2" pieces (this is not written in stone and you can cut the pieces smaller if you like)
  • 1
    can carrots, drained (14.5 oz.)
  • 1
    can peas, drained (14.5 oz.)
  • ·
    pepper, to taste
  • OPTIONAL INGREDIENTS:

  • 1
    can corn, drained (14.5 oz.)
  • 1
    cup celery cut into bite-size pieces (adding this will require you to partially cook the celery prior to adding it to the chicken & sauce)
  • INGREDIENTS FOR DUMPLINGS:

  • 1-1/2
    cups flour
  • 3-1/2
    tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2
    tsp. dried dill weed (you can add more dill weed, depending on your taste)
  • 1
    tsp. onion powder
  • 1/2
    tsp. salt
  • 1
    cup milk

How to Make CHICKEN & HOMEMADE DUMPLINGS IN ONE POT/PAN

Step-by-Step

  1. In a 5-6 quart heavy pot or pan with a tight-fitting lid (I prefer a pan with high sides), melt butter over medium heat. Add onion and thyme. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally until onion is soft (about 7 minutes). Add 1/4 cup flour and cook, stirring for 1/2 minute. Slowly add chicken broth and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Add pepper to taste. Nestle chicken in pot/pan. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes.
  2. MEANWHILE, MAKE DUMPLINGS: In a medium bowl, whisk together 1-1/2 cups flour, dill weed, onion powder, baking powder and salt. With a whisk or fork, gradually stir in 1 cup Milk to form a moist and soft batter. It should be just a little thicker than pancake batter and should drop easily from the tip of a spoon. (Add additional 2-4 tablespoons of Milk if too thick). Set aside
  3. Stir Peas and Carrots into pot/pan (and any other optional ingredients). Drop dumpling batter into simmering liquid in 10 heaping tablespoonfuls, keeping them spaced apart (dumplings will swell as they cook). Cover and simmer until chicken is tender and dumplings are firm (about 25-30 minutes).
  4. Serve and enjoy! This is a complete meal by itself. I usually just put the pot/pan and a large serving spoon on the table and let everyone take their own portions.
