Modified Chicken and Dumplings recipe from Weight Watchers

Well, I may have chosen the wrong day to cook a stew that took about an hour when all was said and done. It’s a hot summer’s day, and I’ve been home for 2 hours now and the place hasn’t really cooled off yet… However! It was really yummy and really filling! (At least for me, my husband rarely ever gets full off of a Weight Watchers meal, but at least he has a healthy snack afterwards instead of pigging out.)

I really liked using the Bisquick for the dumplings. They were super gooey and felt indulgent as I ate. The recipe that I used actually called for sage to be mixed into the dumpling dough, but spices like that tend to cause heartburn for my husband so I decided to leave them out since the stew itself had lots of flavor. By the way, the stew had onions in it, but cooked onions seem to be just fine for my husband’s heartburn. This was a great realization for me because now I end up with cooked onions in very many of the dishes I make. They’re, of course, a great source of flavor, and since many other ingredients that are meant to add flavor tend to cause heartburn, onions really allow me to make dishes that aren’t completely bland.

Anyway, it’s a great dish that I’ll keep on the make-again list. But take my advice, don’t cook it on a hot day.
