Food was awesome but gave me the poops. Made it three times and three times I had the poops. Not sure what to do.
Old-Fashioned Chicken & Dumplings
From EatingWell: EatingWell for a Healthy Heart Cookbook (2008)
Our revision of creamy chicken and dumplings uses whole-wheat flour for the dumplings and adds lots of vegetables to the filling. The delicious, satisfying results are packed with beneficial nutrients and dietary fiber, and because we don't use canned soup for the sauce, sodium levels are drastically reduced. To go even lighter, try the recipe with boneless, skinless chicken breasts.

This did take quite a while to prep. Chopping all the veggies and especially browning the chicken. It was worth it though; it is so good!! I used bisquick for the dumplings instead of the flour mixtures. I added celery seed to both the flour on the chicken and the dumpling mix as suggested by other reviewers. It was so so good. Definitely will make again.
I LOVE this recipe as did my husband (did not seem to notice the dumplings were wheat) and will make it again. I agree it is a little heavy on the poultry seasoning and lightened up on that and will lighten up on it even more next time...added a little more salt to each addition including flour for chicken....followed reviewer's suggestion to add celery salt and garlic powder to dumplings. I thought this recipe came out just perfect...nice and thick and not tons leftover
I made this recipe for the first time and LOVED it. I added more carrot, celery and peas because I wanted to veggie-pack it even more. However, my dumplings came out heavy and a bit tough. Does anyone know a good way to prevent this?
I really like this recipe! I've made it a few times and it always fills everyone up (even my heavy hitters!) One bowl usually does it for people. It all goes together really fast, but it takes a while to cut and prep everything. Plus it's good on my diet (the 4 Day Diet)!
