Recipe: Keto Chicken Dumplings


For the Filling:
  • 2 cups cooked chicken breast, diced
  • 1 cup celery, diced
  • 1 cup carrots, diced
  • 1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste
For the Dumplings:
  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum (optional, for texture)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste


1. Prepare the Filling:
  • In a large skillet, heat the olive oil and butter over medium heat.
  • Add the chopped onion and minced garlic, and sauté until they become fragrant and translucent.
  • Add the diced chicken, celery, and carrots to the skillet. Sauté for a few minutes until the vegetables begin to soften.
  • Pour in the chicken broth and heavy cream. Season the filling with dried thyme, salt, and pepper. Stir well and let it simmer for about 10-15 minutes, or until the mixture thickens slightly.
2. Prepare the Dumplings:
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, baking powder, and xanthan gum (if using). Mix well.
  • Pour in the unsweetened almond milk and stir until a thick batter forms.
  • Fold in the chopped fresh parsley, and season the dumpling batter with salt and pepper.
3. Simmer the Dumplings:
  • Drop spoonfuls of the dumpling batter onto the chicken and vegetable filling in the skillet. Cover and let the dumplings simmer for about 10-15 minutes, or until they are cooked through and no longer doughy in the center.
4. Serve:
  • Spoon a generous portion of the keto chicken dumplings onto each plate, ensuring you get some dumplings, chicken, and vegetables in each serving.
