It’s so nice to have comfort food and not be overly stuffed!!! Thanks to Optavia I’m able to create such a thing!!! 

What you need…

  • 4oz of rotisserie chicken (I just picked one up at the store)
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 cup mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup sliced celery
  • 1/2 cup green beans
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 TBSP butter 
  • Spices : parsley, garlic powder, onion powder, sage 

How to make it… 

  1. Cook your green beans and your celery until tender 
  2. Blend your mushrooms and your almond milk together until it’s a good liquid then add it to your celery and green beans 
  3. Add on your chicken broth and spices. I didn’t measure them 😬 but probably a pinch of onion and garlic powder 1/4 tsp sage and 1/2 tsp of parsley. 
  4. Bring it to a boil and turn the heat down to a simmer. 
  5. While that’s cooking go ahead and pull all your chicken off the bones and make sure you pull the skin off too. 
  6. Now let’s get the dumplings ready!
  7. Mix your Optavia buttermilk and chedder buscuit with 1 TBSP egg beaters and 1 TBSP almond milk. Mix well and cook for 30sec. Then mix again and it should be all dough like 
  8. Once the liquid is thinkened or about half way gone add in your chicken 
  9. Add your dumplings in with a 1 tsp spoon and then add in your water and bring that to a boil. 
  10. Once it’s boiling turn down the heat some, cover and let simmer for about 15min.
