Chicken & Dumplings in Less Than an Hour? Yep! Here's the Recipe!

Craving comfort food? You can have a pot of chicken and dumplings on the table inexpensively, in less than an hour. Seriously! 

You'll need:

  • 1 chicken
  • 8 cups water
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 3 ribs celery, chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 8 flour tortillas, cut into dumpling-sized squares
  • chopped fresh parsley or dried parsley flakes (optional)
  • black pepper

Here's how to make it:

  1. Put the water, salt and the chicken in a large pot. Add the celery and onion and bring to a boil. Cook at a slow simmer until chicken is done, about 30 minutes.
  2. Remove chicken, cool slightly and remove the meat. Add the meat back to the pot along with the can of cream of chicken soup. 
  3. Bring to a boil and add the flour tortillas. Boil, covered, about 8 minutes. Season with black pepper and salt, to taste. For color, I add chopped parsley. 

It is so good! Enjoy!

It's one of our favorites. Making a big pot Wednesday night for my husband to take to the deer lease. It's even better the next day.
