Comfort is Key!

Soft and Pillowy are two words that have a comforting ring to them! You know, like an obvious soft pillow or clouds! But since we are all about food, let's talk DUMPLINGS! YESSSSS.. . soft pillowy delicate homemade dumplings with herbed rotisserie chicken! Omg I'm drooling! Now that is the kind of comfort we all need right now! With winter upon us along with flu season, I think we all need to just put our pajamas on, listen to some soft music and have a plate of this yummy goodness!

Easy Herbed Rotisserie Chicken and Dumplings



6 tbsp. butter

1 cup chopped yellow onion

1 cup matchstick carrots

1 cup diced celery

3-4 cloves garlic, minced

3 tbsp. all-purpose flour

3/4 cup whole milk

32 ounces (1 quart) chicken stock

4 cups shredded rotisserie Herb chicken

1 tsp. dried oregano or thyme

Salt, to taste

freshly cracked black pepper, to taste


2 cups all-purpose flour

1 tbsp. baking powder

1 tsp. Salt

1 1/2 tsp. freshly cracked black pepper

1 tsp. dried oregano or thyme

4 tbsp. Butter, melted

3/4 cup whole milk


In a large skillet melt butter over medium-high heat.

Add the onion, carrots and celery. Cook for approx. 5-6 minutes, or until vegetables soft. Add the garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes more.

Sprinkle flour over top and stir to combine. Cook for 1 minute.

Add the milk and chicken stock and stir well to combine.

Bring to a boil and then add the chicken, oregano or thyme, salt and pepper. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook uncovered as you prepare the dumplings.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, pepper and oregano or thyme. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and slowly pour the butter and then the milk into the center well.

Using a wooden spoon, stir together until a dough ball forms ( you can even use your clean hands to form the dough).

Using a large tablespoon, scoop out dough and form into ball. Drop the dough directly into the soup. Place them randomly in the skillet about 1-2 inches apart.

Once all the dumplings have all been added, gently press down on them and using a spoon, pour some of the soup over each dumpling.

Place a lid on your skillet or cover with aluminum foil. Lower heat to a low simmer and cook for 15-20 minutes. Check to see if dumplings are cooked through ( if not, cook a few minutes more) and then serve immediately.

Enjoy! 😉
