Not-For-Company Chicken and Dumplings

This definitely falls into several categories--easy, tasty, and comfort food-y come to mind. I say these are "not for company," because surely when company comes you'd want to serve them chicken and dumplings that take all day to make. This recipe takes about 15-20 minutes to make. Even better--no chicken bones to worry about (because I don't know about you, but when I find a bone in my chicken and dumplings, I just have to stop eating.) Works equally well as a main dish or side dish. Serves 2-4.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. In a saucepan, bring chicken broth to a boil.
  2. Add cut-up tortillas first, then the cream of chicken, chicken meat, and salt & pepper. Mix well. (The ingredient list wouldn't let me list the tortillas like I needed to, so I'll take this opportunity to note that you'll want the 6-inch size flour tortillas here. If you're using the 8-inch size, you'll probably need less than the recipe calls for).
  3. Continue cooking until all ingredients are well-mixed and heated through. (Personally, I bring it back to a second boil to make sure the flour tortillas are nice and saturated and the canned chicken is warm all the way through.).

This is surprisingly GREAT. I've made this recipe 5 or 6 times already. My husband loves it and couldn't believe the "dumplings" were tortillas. The sauce really hides it!
