Sherri's Chicken & Dumplings


Here's a family favorite from Sherri, made with chicken breasts and tortillas.


  • 4 chicken breast halves
  • 2 cans chicken broth (3 1/2 cups)
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 cubes chicken bouillon or equivalent base or granules
  • 1 small carrot, chopped
  • 1 small rib celery, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 12 large flour tortillas


Combine all ingredients in slow cooker, except tortillas. Cook on low 8 to 10 hours. Take out chicken and remove meat from bones, then place broth on stove in large pot. Cut chicken into bite-size pieces and return to broth on stovetop. Bring to a slow boil.

Cut tortillas in half, then in 1-inch strips. Place strips into simmering broth and boil gently for 15 to 20 minutes, stir occasionally. Broth should thicken but if too thin, combine 1 tablespoon cornstarch with just enough water to dissolve and stir into broth. Cook 5 to 10 minutes more.
Serves 4.
