This is a really good low fat chicken and dumplings recipe. I loved how many veggies are in this; what an easy way to get my kids to eat more vegetables! I used fat free vegetable broth to poach the chicken (thinking it would infuse a little more flavor), and whole wheat pastry flour to make the dumplings (because it is all I have). I found that this made 4 very hearty servings, and I calculated them to be 7 WW points a piece. Filling and tasty; this is good basic comfort food, done healthfully.

This is such a fabulous recipe! I have been searching for it for 20 years, since R. Simmons had a cooking show. I first made it when I was dieting to lose the baby weight from my first child. I want to make it for my grown kids now. Please post more of his recipes if you have them. Thanks sooo much Holly!!

Fantastic low fat chicken and dumplings!! i made this so many times this past winter. i roll out the dumplings into a rectangle and then use my pizza cutter to cut them into squares. Lovely. Of course, they're not exactly like full fat dumplings, but for being so low fat, they're AMAZING. Thanks for such a great recipe!!

My family said this was just okay. Remember, it's the carbs you should be concerned about, not the fat.

You will get a lot more flavor without adding many calories by browning the chicken with some onion, celery and carrot in a little olive oil and then cooking in the chicken broth.

This recipe was great! A few modifications that I made are first, I used about a pound of rotisserie chicken breast instead of cooking my own. It was a quick and easy option. Also, I added a total of 4 cups of chicken broth instead of 3. 3 just didn't seem like enough. The last thing I did was instead of using poultry seasoning, I used Italian seasoning and added some black pepper. Overall it was a really nice dish that my kids gobbled up! Win! Win! :)

Very good. Tastes just like my chicken noodle soup except the dumplings. They are delicious. I will make this again. Second round on this and still loved it. Only this is I think I will not make this thick and I will add double or triple the broth(homemade and store bought combined). Thank you.

This was easy, pretty quick, and tasty. I did not think the dumplings were as good as I was expecting. I did not use fresh parsley. I would use less flour as a thickener. We really liked the taste.
