To make chicken and dumplings with less fat, I freeze or chill my chicken broth in the freezer. I then remove the fat which has come to the top. Next, I use some of this fat to make my dumplings along with a little of the broth. My dumplings are healthy and never greasy.

Easy, good and cheap!
In one big pot, fill pot 2/3 full with water Put 1/2 to 1 pound of chicken (if you use chicken with bones you will have to de-bone at some point), one pound of carrots (cut up or baby), 2-3 sticks celery (cut up), one large onion (quartered), 3 chicken bouillon cubes, 1/2 tsp. powdered garlic, 1/4 tsp. sage, 1/4 tsp. thyme, 1 tsp. salt.
Okay people, this is so easy and yummy. All you need is 2 cans of Cream of Chicken soup, empty into pan, and fill one can up with milk and add to the pan, then get 3 cans of biscuits.
Combine chicken, salt, pepper, and about 6 cups water in a Dutch or large pot. Bring to a boil; cover and simmer 2 hours or until chicken is tender. Remove chicken from broth; cool. De bone chicken. If necessary, add more water to broth.

Here is a good use for leftover chicken. Mine is for one person. Mix pancake mix (I use this instead of regular baking mix, just because I like it. You can use Jiffy or whatever pleases you.)
