Paleo Chicken and Dumplings

Paleo Chicken and Dumplings is a hearty one pot dinner that will satisfy the whole family.  Loaded with lean chicken and vegetables served with paleo biscuits. Gluten Free, Grain Free, Dairy Free, Paleo and Whole30 friendly.

Paleo Chicken and Dumplings is a hearty one pot dinner that will satisfy the whole family Gluten Free Dairy Free Whole30 recipe | ahealthylifeforme.comWhen I was pregnant with my first son, I had an obsession with a local restaurant’s chicken and dumplings.  They only served it at lunch one day a week, and I would enthusiastically anticipate that day all week.  It served a huge lunch crowd and made their recipes each day, so when its something was gone, it was gone and you had to order something else off the menu.  One unfortunate day, they ran out before this very pregnant woman got her chicken and dumplings.  Let’s just say… my poor husband, he was with me and he had to see his wife have a pregnancy meltdown in a restaurant.

Ahhh, good memories.

Paleo Chicken and Dumplings is a hearty one pot dinner that will satisfy the whole family Gluten Free Dairy Free Whole30 recipe | ahealthylifeforme.comI still love chicken and dumplings but have been working towards making it a cleaner, leaner and healthier version.

This recipe brings you back to when dinner was a rib-sticking, satisfying dinner that satisfied hungry eaters all around the dinner table.  Where you just knew the cook spent hours preparing such a soul-satisfying dinner.  BUT guess what this is a simple to prepare recipe.  You can even make the chicken portion of this recipe ahead of time and refrigerate or freeze and reheat while you whip up the biscuits.

You can serve biscuits along a side of chicken or on top, personal preference here.

    Do you think you could drop the biscuits on top of the soup and cover to steam cook them ? That’s what my mom would do with hers .

  2. 3 stars
    I really wanted this recipe to work, but ended up having to add 2 more cups of chicken broth to even cover the chicken & veggies. I followed the biscuit recipe to a tee, but had to cook them 20 minutes longer in the oven, & even after that they still jiggled in the middle when touched. I had to put them back in the oven & bake for 10 more minutes…everything ended up tasting good, but only after I tweaked it a lot. :/ I’m not sure what happened. Oh well.

    1. I am sorry to hear you had so many problems, Jess. Though I am happy that everything ended up tasting okay.
