Chicken and Dumplings

Comfort foods are always great to have…especially when they fall in line with whole food eating. This recipe is the perfect way to use leftover roasted chicken. One thing that is nice about this meal is that it is completely done on top of the stove…perfect for those warmer months when you don’t want to turn on your stove.

The dumplings are made using sprouted or gluten free flour and the whole dish is so totally yummy that I actually went back for more!
