Gluten Free Chicken N Dumplings Soup Recipe (1)

The looming fear and uncertainty in the world right now is resulting in lots of time at home and tons of family baking and cooking. If you're on Instagram, then you're watching those baking sessions happen in our kitchen weekdays at 11am PT, chaos and all! I know it’s not great to eat your feelings, but I don’t see anything wrong with eating to make yourself feel good. Comfort food is called what it is for a reason, and I am a full supporter of making use of it when we need it most! Cue this recipe for Gluten Free Chicken N Dumplings!

Food is also something that I've found brings people together. Whether we're gathered in the kitchen baking together, cleaning together, snacking together, or gathered around a table. Or virtually by cooking from my books, together – apart! Most of my favorite moments involve the preparation and enjoyment of food.

I posted on Instagram to ask which of my favorite comfort food recipes in Eat What You Love you guys wanted most, and this Gluten Free Chicken N Dumplings Soup Recipe was the clear winner. If you have not made this recipe, then I think the rising climate of uncertainty is a worthy cause to brave the recipe. It looks long, but it is very achievable when broken down by steps.

Tips & Tricks for a hearty meal –

I chose to use an entire chicken for this recipe because it is more flavorful from the various cuts of meat (and it's cost-effective!). However, if you are not comfortable with cutting a whole chicken yourself, you can ask your butcher to cut a whole chicken into 8 pieces or buy 8 pieces of bone-in skin-on chicken. The dark meat definitely is best for flavor here. Brown the pieces beforehand – it adds a deep, deliciously rich flavor. Also, I personally use homemade Bone Broth for this recipe, but you're welcome to use store-bought. I recommend using bone broth found in the fridge/freezer section instead of a shelf-stable option. Bone broth from the fridge/freezer section will make it thick and gelatinous, and that won't happen with self-stable (while the recipe will still work with it).

I hope this recipe brings some warmth to your home and comfort to your hearts!

  • 1⁄2 cup diced celery

  1. To make the soup, heat the ghee in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Season the chicken pieces with 1 teaspoon salt and 1 teaspoon pepper. Working in batches to avoid crowding, add the chicken and cook for 4 to 6 minutes per side, until well browned. Transfer the chicken to a plate and leave the drippings in the pot.
  2. Add the shallots, carrot, celery, thyme, and garlic to the pot and sauté until the vegetables begin to soften, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove and discard the browned skin from the chicken pieces and return the chicken to the pot along with the bay leaves and bone broth. Bring to a boil, then turn the heat to medium and simmer, covered, until the chicken is cooked through and easily pulls away from the bone, about 1 hour.
  3. To make the dumplings, meanwhile, in a bowl, whisk together the almond flour, coconut flour, 1⁄4 cup arrowroot, baking powder, chives, dill, and salt. Whisk in the egg and almond milk.
  4. Transfer the chicken pieces to a cutting board and discard the bay leaves. Shred the chicken, discarding the bones, and return the meat to the soup.
  5. In a small bowl, whisk together 1⁄4 cup water and the 3 tablespoons arrowroot, then whisk it into the soup. Bring the soup back to a boil over medium-high heat and cook for 3 to 5 minutes, until the broth has thickened. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Turn the heat to low and allow the boil to calm (the dumplings will break apart if the soup is boiling when you add them). Skim the fat from the surface using a wide spoon, then drop the dumpling mixture into the soup in eight large spoonfuls. Cover the pot and cook until the dumplings are firm, 10 to 12 minutes. Ladle the soup into bowls, being sure to get plenty of chicken and a dumpling or two in each serving. Sprinkle with parsley and serve immediately.
  7. Store leftover soup and dumplings in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 5 days. Reheat in a covered saucepan over medium-low heat for 8 to 10 minutes, until heated through.

TIPS: The key to the dumplings staying together is to cook them, undisturbed, at very low heat. Any bubbles or rolling boil in the soup will cause them to break apart. You can also bake them at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes if you’d prefer!
