Low Carb
Chicken & Dumplings
3 1/2 cups chicken stock (low sodium if you like)
1 1/2 cups water
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 cup finely chopped carrot
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
1 clove garlic, chopped
Pinch of sage (optional)
1 tsp basil
1 tsp garlic
Salt and pepper to taste
5 slices American cheese (low fat or no fat if you like)
2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite sized pieces
For the dumplings:
1 can Keto low-carb bread mix (remove the yeast pack, don't need it)
2 eggs
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 cup water
Sauté the veggies in butter in a heavy soup pot until they begin to soften. Add stock, water, seasonings and stir. Add the chicken and bring to a simmer. Cover and continue to simmer until the veggies are tender and the chicken is cooked throughout (about 20 minutes). Add the cheese slices and stir to blend as they melt.

Mix the bread mix, water, cream and eggs into stiff dough. Drop by spoonfuls into the simmering broth. Cover and simmer for fifteen minutes. Remove cover and continue cooking for five more minutes. Serve garnished with grated cheese.
