a big bowl of comfort! one of my all time favorite meals growing up. enjoy and savor every bite of this healthier , dairy-free version.

ingredients:

chicken + sauce
dumplings

instructions:

  1. in a large saucepan over medium-high heat, add olive oil
  2. add chopped chicken and season with cajun seasoning to taste and cook until there is no more pink on the outside (approx. 3 minutes)
  3. remove chicken from the pan and set aside
  4. add butter to your pan; add onion & celery and sauté for approx. 4-5 minutes until soft
  5. add the broth, mushrooms, dill, thyme, coconut milk, spinach and water. bring mixture to a boil and reduce heat to medium and maintain a simmer for about 15 minutes
  6. in a small separate bowl, add flour, baking soda, 1/4 tsp cajun seasoning, and a dash of cracked black pepper.  using your finger tips, cut the cold butter into the flour until the mixture forms what looks like coarse crumbs.  stir in the milk and combine just until the dough forms
  7. add the chicken and peas into the broth and let it simmer again; drop the dough into the simmering broth (about a teaspoon worth) spacing them evenly.  i made about 20 dumplings. cover and simmer for 5 minutes, then uncover and simmer for 3 more minutes until the dough is cooked through. 
  8. top with more fresh dill and serve!
