Directions
6 STEPS
1
In a large stockpot, combine the chicken breasts and chicken broth. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce heat, and let it simmer until the chicken is cooked through.
2
Meanwhile, in a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, and baking powder. Incorporate the butter into the mixture until it's well combined. Stir in the milk until a dough forms.
3
On a well-floured surface, roll out the dough to a 1/4-inch thickness. Cut the dough into 1 1/2 to 2-inch squares using a knife or pizza cutter.
4
Once the chicken is cooked, remove it from the broth, shred it, and set it aside. In the same broth, cook the onions and garlic until they become translucent.
5
Add the prepared dumplings to the broth and let them simmer for about 15-20 minutes until they are fully cooked and not doughy.
6
Stir in the shredded chicken and heavy cream to the broth and dumpling mixture. Season with salt and pepper to your liking. Continue to cook until the chicken is warmed through and the sauce thickens slightly.
