Gluten-Free Chicken and Dumpling Soup
1 medium carrot, thickly sliced
1 celery rib, thickly sliced
1 small yellow onion, coarsely chopped
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 1 lb)
1 large egg (or 1/4 cup egg substitute)
1/4 cup whole milk
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 cup gluten-free baking mix (+ more as needed)
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon gluten-free poultry seasoning, divided
1 (32-oz) box gluten-free reduced-sodium chicken broth
- Slice carrot and celery into 1/2-inch-thick slices; chop onion (1 cup).
- Cut chicken into small bite-size pieces (wash hands).
- Combine egg, milk, and oil until well blended.
- Combine in medium bowl: baking mix, salt, and 1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning. Make a well in center of dry mix; add egg mixture to well and stir in baking mix until mixture becomes stiff and dough can be worked into a firm ball.
- Place dough on work surface sprinkled with more baking mix. Roll dough out until 1/4–1/2-inch thick; cut into 1-inch-square dumplings.
- Place in large stock pot: broth, carrots, celery, onions, chicken, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning; bring just to a simmer on medium heat.
- Reduce heat to low and drop dumplings gently into soup (do NOT stir). Cover and cook 8–9 minutes (without stirring) or until chicken is thoroughly cooked. Serve.
