Introducing the ultimate clean comfort food. Nothing sounds less healthy than chicken and dumplings, but I'm here to save the day! Actually, Tiffany at the Gracious Panty is the true brains behind this recipe, I just made a few alterations to make this recipe "lean and clean". Original recipe can be found here.
2 cups oat flour
1 tbsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp evoo
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
3 large carrot sticks, chopped
4 large celery stalks, chopped
1 onion, chopped
5 cups low sodium chicken broth
1 cup water
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp marjoram
4 chicken breasts, chopped into squares
2 tsp olive oil
1. Add chicken broth, water, marjoram, and garlic powder to a large pot and bring to a slow boil.
2. In a saute pan, add celery, carrots, onion, and olive oil and cook until onions are translucent
3. While veggies are sauteing, combine all dumpling ingredients in large mixing bowl and mix with wooden spoon.
4. With broth boiling, add chicken, veggies, and dumplings and cook until chicken and dumplings are cooked through, or about 15 minutes. [To create dumplings form balls by using two spoons, and then carefully drop them in the boiling broth. You don't want to use your hands because the raw dumplings are very sticky]
I thought I was going to have to hide this from B he liked it so much. He has been asking for a chicken pot pie recipe, and this is as close as it has come.. so far. When I was eating this I actually had to stop and ask myself if this is really clean, but sure enough it is! Let me know if you try it :)
