Budget Recipe: Chicken and Dumplings

Every fall and winter I make my signature chili. It’s filling, cheap and a big pot lasts for days. As the temps start to drop, I wanted to switch things up a bit and make another hearty bowl of yumminess. The cafeteria at my job has a great chicken and dumpling soup. It’s thick, creamy and perfect on a chilly afternoon. And being the frugal gal I am, I figured I can make this in my own kitchen and of course I’m sharing the recipe with you.

I didn’t make any specific measurements, I just eyeballed everything. I also left the chicken in big chunks, to give it a bit of a rustic feel.

Ingredients are simple, cheap and most likely in your fridge or pantry.

{cut carrots, celery and onions. sautee for a few minutes until soft}

{chop chicken in to chunks. lightly season. i used salt, pepper and garlic powder}

{add chicken to veggies and sautee for 5 minutes. add chicken broth and simmer for 10 minutes}

{add cream to thicken. cook on low for 5 minutes}

{make dumplings by mixing flour and water. add a little bit of salt or seasoning of your choice so the dumplings aren’t so bland}

{drop balls of the dough in the soup. do not stir. cover for 5 minutes}

{eat up!}
