Hey kiddos. I’ve been a bit scarce lately, sorry for that!! I tend to get a bit lazy with my posts when I have chemo. Sometimes I hardly even respond to people via facebook or text, I’m that tired. However, I’m starting to feel better and will be back in the gym tomorrow for a light workout to get my joints moving once again! ONE MORE CHEMO TREATMENT TO GO!!!! Okay, just had to let ya’ll know I haven’t forgotten about you :)

To hold you over…here’s that chicken & dumpling soup recipe I’ve been promising you :)

Ingredients:

Soup

  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 1/4 c. dry sherry
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 32 oz container of low sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 of 10 oz can of cream of mushroom soup (low sodium)
  • 1 1/2 c. mixed veggies
  • 4 chicken breasts, cut into pieces
  • 2 tbsp corn starch
  • 1/4 c. water

Dumplings

  • 1 c. Kodiak Cakes Flapjack Mix
  • 1/2 c. almond flour
  • 1/2 c. milk
  • 2 eggs (I only used one yolk)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • Salt, pepper, dill

Step 1: Spray pot with cooking spray. Saute onion and garlic in pan for about 5 minutes.

Step 2: Add all ingredients, sherry through soup, and bring to a boil.

Step 3: Add chicken pieces, bring to a boil.

Step 4: Add veggies, bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover, and simmer for about 35 minutes.

Step 5: Here’s where I made the dumpling dough and stuck it in the fridge til it was time to put them in the soup.

Step 6: Before adding dumplings, I mixed the corn starch and water and stirred it into the soup. Then I dropped my dumplings in one by one, and covered it and let it simmer for 20 min.

It ended up being more like a chicken pot pie consistency, which was still delicious! Next time I think I’ll try making the dumplings ahead of time and freezing them so they don’t all stick together. This recipe serves about 6-8, and is under 300 calories per serving. Not too shabby!
