Jessica Simpson's Chicken Dumplings

2 rolls of reduced-fat croissant rolls, divided
1 small rotisserie chicken, skin discarded and meat removed from bones
1 can of low-sodium, reduced-fat cream of chicken soup
1 can of low-sodium, reduced-fat cream of mushroom soup
1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
Salt and ground black pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 400ºF. Roll out two cans of croissant rolls and separate into diamond shaped sections. Place a small handful of rotisserie chicken on each diamond, fold dough over and press ends together to create dumplings. With remaining dough, cut into long strips. 
Line a 9×13″ baking dish with one layer of dumplings. Pour the can of cream of chicken soup over the layer of dumplings, followed by the can of cream of mushroom soup, and chicken broth.
Place strips in a crisscross pattern on the top of the dumplings and soup mixture, season dish with salt and ground black pepper and bake until the dumplings are tender and cooked through and the top is bubbly and brown, about 30 minutes.

Chad's rating: 7.5/10 - "Too much dough"
Amy's rating: 8.5/10 - I would make again, but I don't think my husband was that big of a fan. Or it could be that he is on a strict workout/diet plan and this was too rich for him. Hey, I made a salad too. :-)

Recipe found and adapted here; originally from here.


  1. Only a 7.5 from Chad?! They sound really good to me!

  2. Ha! I liked it, but Chad and I had a disagreement on what a dumpling is. He kept saying "it has too much dough". Yeah, dumplings are dough! Ha!
