Easy ~ Southern Style Chicken N Dumplings

Chicken N Dumplings are so good during the cooler months time of year. I am going to give you a super easy recipe that saves you from the work of rolling out dumplings. Yes, you read that right. Easy recipe, saves work! Here is what you will need.
  • 2 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
  • 1 Package of Anne’s Dumplings
  • 1 Stalk of Celery
  • 1 Large Carrot
  • 1 Onion
  • 1 Sprig of Fresh Thyme
  • Poultry Seasoning
  • Salt
  • Black Pepper
  • 1 Carton of Chicken Broth (32oz or 4 cups)
  • Heavy Cream


Pour 1 carton of chicken broth into a large stock pot with 3 cups of water. Cut the celery, carrot and peeled onion in half and add to the pot. Add salt and pepper to taste, and a dash of poultry seasoning. Add the two boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Partially cover and bring to a boil.
Once boiling, reduce temperature to a simmer. Let simmer until the chicken breasts are cooked.
Remove the chicken breasts to a cutting board and allow to cool. With a slotted spoon remove all of the vegetables and herbs from the liquid and discard.
Once the chicken has cooled enough to handle, shred or dice the chicken. Bring the stock liquid to a boil. Break the dumplings apart and add to the boiling stock. TIP: Do not use the entire box of dumplings – you don’t need them and it will thicken the liquid too much.
I promise you cannot get any better of a shortcut than using Anne’s Dumplings. They are frozen dumplings just like you would roll out at home.
Once you’ve added your dumplings allow to simmer – about 20 – 30 minutes on a medium-low simmer.
Add the chicken back to the pot with the dumplings and continue to simmer for another 20 minutes.
At the end of cooking add 1/4 cup of heavy cream and mix to combine.
Serve and enjoy. These Chicken N Dumplings are absolutely delicious.
