Chicken and Tortilla Dumplings

Recipe by weekend cooker

a great one-dish dinner , the dumplings are wonderful. Instead of biscuit dough for the dumplings, I use tortilla strips.Just takes a little time adding the tortilla strips.

A great no-think supper that is hot and hearty! The changes I made was using only 3 chicken breasts and also adding half a pkg of frozen mixed veggies when adding the chicken to the soup/stew -- very thick and very good! We did need to add a lot of pepper to our bowls - but that is just individual taste preference. Comfort food at its best! Thanks for sharing!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a very large kettle, or roaster, place chicken breasts, water, celery, and onion. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and cook for about 30 minutes or until chicken is tender. Remove and set aside to cool.
  2. Reserve broth in roaster(you should have about 9 cups of broth>).
  3. Add chicken bouillon and taste to make sure it is tasty.
  4. Add more bouillon if needed and more water if you do not have 9 cups of broth.
  5. When chicken is cool enough, cut into bite-size pieces and set aside.
  6. Add chicken soup to broth and bring to a boil.
  7. Cut tortillas into 2x1 inch strips. Add strips, one at a time, to briskly boiling broth mixture and stir constantly.
  8. When all strips have been added, spoon in chicken, reduce heat to low and simmer 5-10 minutes, stirring well but gently, to prevent dumplings from sticking.
  9. When done, kettle of chicken and dumplings will be very thick.
  10. Pour into very large serving bowl, and serve hot.
