  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast fillets – cut into 1″ chunks
  • 1 medium onion, peeled and diced
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 4 large carrots, peeled and sliced into 1/2″ pieces
  • 1 cup frozen green beans
  • 2 stalks celery, sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • Kosher or sea salt to taste
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/4 cup thickener, (corn starch, whole wheat flour or arrowroot)

Dumpling Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 3/4 cup low-fat milk


Stew Instructions: Add all stew ingredients to the slow cooker, stir to combine. Cook on low for 5 hours. Combine the thickener with equal amount of broth from the slow cooker. Stir to remove any lumps, add to the slow cooker and stir to combine.

After 5 hours, turn slow cooker to high and be sure the broth is boiling slightly before adding the dumplings to the slow cooker. Using a tablespoon, drop dumplings on top of stew mixture. Be careful to place the dumplings on top and not into the stew. After adding dumplings, cook for 1 hour on high, or until dumplings are cooked through and no longer raw in the center.

Dumpling Instructions: In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt, whisk to combine. Pour in the oil and cut into the flour mixture with a fork. And milk and stir with a large spoon just until flour is moist.
