Keto Chicken and Dumplings

by hungryelephant

What a great comfort food! I had never had chicken and dumplings before I made this but after cooking it a few times and changing up the recipe.. I’m in LOVE and I think I found the perfect gluten free/keto chicken and dumplings.

Ive updated this recipe because it seemed several people have had issues with the dumplings dissolving in the broth. So I’ve tried with a different recipe that will be easier and will not break down when cooked in water. The soup is still the same, but the dumplings are different.

You will definitely notice that the dumplings will be a bit sticky – so its important to wet your hands when youre handling the batter. Other than that, it’s fairly simple!

The soup was really good but my dumplings disintegrated?? I put them into simmering soup and covered them but after just a few minutes they were mush.

Hmmm I had the same problem at the beginning.. i think it was because I may have used too much almond flour.

i made these dumplings but used coconut flour instead of almond flour. I also used 2 eggs and a little bit of the broth because they didn’t want to hold together otherwise. They didn’t disintegrate. Haven’t tasted them yet but it smells awesome.

Good to know. I’ll try that next time. The mush is tasty, though. 🙂

Ive updated this recipe because it seemed several people have had issues with the dumplings dissolving in the broth. So I’ve tried with a different recipe that will be easier and will not break down when cooked in water. The soup is still the same, but the dumplings are different. You will definitely notice that the dumplings will be a bit sticky – so its important that you let the dough sit for a few minutes so that the psyllium husk will soak up the liquid. But there’s no psyllium husk listed in the dumpling ingredients. ?????

hey! I forgot to take the psyllium part out of the description. It’s been removed. No psyllium is used in this recipe. (it was part of the old one)

Thanks for pointing it out!
