I'm saving this! The second recipe from Lilly looks really, really good!! Definitely trying that this winter.

I bet you could easily do it with organic oat, wheat, or rice flour! Here's how I make my dumplings...
1 stick unsalted butter, softened.
2-3 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1.5 tsp baking powder
1 cup skim milk

Cut the butter with a fork in until the dry mixture resembles cornmeal. Blend in the milk until the dough is completely blended. If one cup is not enough, add milk one tablespoon at a time. Drop the dumplings into the broth one rounded tablespoon at a time.

I bet by using a low sodium chicken broth, especially a homemade low sodium chicken broth, you will also be making a healthier version. Using skim milk cuts the fat. Using organic whole wheat flour or oat flour will add more fiber.

I found acouple of recipes that might work for you. The first one is an overall reduced fat version of chicken and dumplings. The second one is similar but it uses cornmeal for the dumplings. I hope it works for you!! :)

i tried making whole wheat wrappers for dumplings,but they dont stretch well when rolled , so they are not nice and thin. they will probably fall apart when cooked though

what about using reduced fat Pillsbury grands biscuits, or making the dumplings out of whole wheat flour?

The thing about dumplings is that they where a really cheap, high calorie and filling thing to make to bulk out expensive meat to make dishes go further.

They are heavy and high calorie and thats what they are for!

you would be better off trying to adapt the "chicken" part of the recipe (no idea what this is exactly) to be a healthy version and not eat the dumplings.

Has anyone accomplished a healthy (healthier) version of Chicken and Dumplings?
