Ingredients
Recipe Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 lbs. chicken breast cut into 3 inch pieces
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. thyme
  • 3 carrots diced
  • 3 celery stalks, diced
  • 1 yellow onion cut into half moons
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 12 oz. Pacific Foods Organic Cream of Chicken Condensed Soup
  • 32 oz. Pacific Foods Organic Free Range Chicken Broth

Dumplings

  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 cup milk or substitute Pacific Foods Non-Dairy Coconut Beverage Original
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  • Season chicken on both sides with salt and pepper. In a large heavy-bottomed pot or Dutch oven, cook chicken on medium heat for 8 minutes, flipping halfway through so both sides are browned.
  • Add carrots, celery, onion, thyme and olive oil to the pot, cook on medium heat for 5-7 minutes stirring frequently.
  • Add peas, Free Range Organic Chicken Broth and Organic Cream of Chicken Condensed Soup and bring to a simmer.
  • Cover and simmer for 25-30 minutes until chicken is cooked through and veggies are tender.
  • To make the dumplings, in a small bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, milk, olive oil, salt and pepper. Reduce heat to low and drop the mixture into the broth in 8 large spoonfuls. Simmer, covered, until the dumplings are firm, about 12 to 15 minutes.
