Delicious Green Chile Chicken and Dumplings Recipe

Have you ever fixed dinner and only after you started cooking realize that some of the members of your family may not like what you have cooked for them? Yeah, well I had that situation the other night when I decided that I was going to change our traditional Chicken and Dumplings Soup into a Green Chile Chicken and Dumplings Stew.

When dinner time rolled around, I jumped into the kitchen like I always do and got started. It was only after about 10 minutes of prepping everything that my husband and the boys asked…what are you cooking mom?

It hit me at that second that telling them may not go over well because they have never had Green Chile anything before. :/ I told them that I had tried this awesome recipe at HEB yesterday called Green Chile Chicken & Dumplings and they were going to LOVE it! It was AMAZING. They just looked at me like I had told him we were having some foreign land dish for dinner and I shrugged it off knowing that they would love it…because it’s just that GOOD!

It was so easy to make and took so little time (which makes it a perfect meal for me). In 30 minutes, dinner was done and I dished out everyone’s Green Chile Chicken & Dumplings knowing that they were in for a treat.

How to Make Green Chile Chicken & Dumplings

As everyone was taking their first bite, I could tell that this dinner idea was going to go over well. Listening to the slurping sounds and yums come from their mouths told me that they loved it as much as I thought they would. After dinner, my husband looked at me and told me I could make it every week because he loved it that much.

I’d call that a success and I have HEB Primo Picks to thank for it!! :)

    The HEB Cooking Station in Kyle added a small bottle of buttermilk to the recipe as well as some Jalapeno Granules. Gives the recipe a little kick without being too hot for the kids:)

    1. I’ll have to try that! Sounds like a great addition to this meal. Thank you Edel!

    I love this stuff! I use it for chicken enchiladas and as a base for chicken tortilla soup. Can’t recommend it enough!
