Chicken & Dumplings

Recommended Posts

The way I would "point" this receipe is

 

4 chicken breasts (12)

2 cans 98% fat free cream of chicken soup (6)

onion (free)

10 oz can of biscuits (10 pts - 1 pt per biscuit)

1 can drained peas (3.5 pts - 3.5 1/2 cup servings in the can)

1 can drained carrots (3.5 pts - same as peas)

 

35 pts for the whole pot divided by number of servings -

I am definitely going to make this recipe this weekend.

 

According to Sparkrecipes.com - with 98% ff soup, reduced fat grands biscuits, 16 oz chicken and carrots, the recipe comes out to 5.6 points.

I make my Chicken and Dumplings using fat-free tortillas instead of biscuits. I use a brand called "La Banderita," and they're 1 point per tortilla. Here's my recipe:

 

3 cups cooked, chopped chicken breast

2 cans fat-free, reduced sodium chicken broth

2 cans Healthy Request cream of chicken soup

5 fat-free tortillas, cut into 2" pieces

1/2 tsp. celery salt

salt and pepper to taste

 

Combine the broth, soup, and chicken in a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Add celery salt, salt, and pepper. While keeping liquid boiling, drop tortillas into liquid one at a time. Reduce heat and simmer 20-30 minutes, until tender.

 

8 servings; 3 points per serving (per WW Recipe Builder)

This is my journey, and I won't let a little pebble in my pathway become a boulder. I'll just kick it out of the way and keep moving forward! :bcb_march

I made this lastnight and it was good. I added veggies (corn and carrots) and adjusted accordingly.

 

I cooked my chicken on low for 4 hours and it was very done (so I can't imagine it on high for longer). I added the biscuits and they had to cook for almost an hour, in order to be "done." I turned them up to high, hoping they would cook, and they did. But I was afraid my chicken would get overdone...it didn't.

 

We will make again, but might add more veggies next time.

Don't know what I did wrong, but I didn't get anywhere near 8 servings at 1 1/2 cup each. Did the serving sizes work out for others?

I made this last week and I am hooked! I never imagined I could make a low point Chicken & Dumplins (one of like my favorite dishes ever). I added a bag of frozen veggies to the mix to add bulk and w/ 8 servings it was only 6pts each with the stuff I used (And really I think I've stretched it beyond 8 servings)

 

Deffinately a repeat!

I'm bumping this thread because I'm making this tonight and the points values have changed under the new PointsPlus program. I actually plugged in the weight of my package of chicken. Just for reference, the biscuits listed are the small rolls of regular Pillsbury biscuit dough. Enjoy!
