Ingredients

  • 1 medium sweet onion finely diced
  • 1 cup sliced carrot
  • 2 ribs celery sliced
  • 4 Tbsp butter
  • salt & black pepper to taste
  • 1 large bay leaf
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 10.75 oz can cream of chicken with herbs soup
  • 3 14.5 oz cans low sodium chicken broth
  • 3 cups roughly chopped rotisserie chicken
  • 2 tsp poultry seasoning
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp dried tarragon
  • 2 ½ cup buttermilk baking mix [i.e. Bisquick]
  • 1 ½ cup buttermilk

Instructions

  • In the bottom of a large heavy bottomed pot or dutch oven, melt the butter. Add diced onion, sliced carrots and celery. Season with salt and black pepper to your taste. Cook for 5 minutes, until the vegetables are beginning to soften and brown.
  • Add ¼ cup all-purpose flour and stir to coat the vegetables.
  • Add bay leaf,  soup, chicken broth, chopped chicken, poultry seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder and tarragon.  Adjust the salt and black pepper to your taste. Stir well.
  • Increase the burner temperature and bring to a boil.
  • Meanwhile, in a medium sized mixing bowl, mix together the buttermilk baking mix and buttermilk.
  • Use a Tbsp or a 2 oz ice cream scoop to divide the dumpling dough dropping into the boiling broth.
  • After all of the dumplings have been added, lower the heat to a gentle simmer and cover. Do not lift the lid for 20 minutes.
  • After 20 minutes, uncover, and gently press the dumplings into the broth.
  • Remove from the heat. Allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving.
  • Stir the dumplings through the broth prior to serving to naturally thicken the broth.

Notes

To thicken the broth further, remove the dumplings to a platter and keep warm. Bring broth to a simmer. Dissolve 2-3 Tbsp flour in cold water or milk, and whisk into the broth. Repeat until you reach your desired consistency. Return the dumplings to the pot and stir before serving.
