Okay, I finally got a chance to make this yesterday, and it reminded me a lot of the chicken & dumplings I used to make. It was really delicious!! I got this recipe from Rachel Ray originally, but I have cut the fat way down. Hope you enjoy!
1-2 tsp olive oil (just enough to saute veggies a little)
2 carrots, sliced
2 russet potatoes or 4 yukon gold potatoes, diced
1 onion, chopped (I used minced onion)
1 bay leaf
2 Tbsp Flour
salt & pepper, to taste
1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
4 cups chicken broth (I used Imagine brand)
1 1/2 lb chicken breast, cut in 1 inch cubes
1 1/2 cups Heart Healthy Bisquick Mix (it's the reduced fat version)
1/2 cup Rice or Soy Milk (I used Rice Dream original flavor)
In large pot, saute the veggies in a tiny bit of olive oil over med-high heat. Next add salt, pepper, and poultry seasoning. Add flour and stir to combine. Stir in the chicken broth and bring to a boil. Add chicken and stir.
While that is cooking... In a mixing bowl, combine Bisquick & milk (recipe also calls for adding parsley into this mix... this is optional). Drop tablespoonfuls into the pot, spacing the dumplings evenly. Cover pot and reduce heat to med-low. Steam dumplings 8 to 10 minutes. Remove cover and stir carefully to thicken sauce a bit.
This is SOOOO delicious!!!! It's a little bit more work than the crockpot version, but it's a 30 minute meal and is great if you have to have a quick dinner and couldn't do the crockpot thing. I made the crockpot chicken stew this way last night, and it was really yummy!
