Here's a meal-in-one that's sized right for a pair. The whole dinner comes together on the stovetop, so you can enjoy a great meal and still get out of the kitchen in a hurry. —Claire Bruno, Tucson, Arizona

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound boneless skinless chicken breast, cubed
  • 1-1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 medium carrot, sliced
  • 1 small potato, peeled and cubed
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped celery
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • DUMPLINGS:
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • Pinch ground cloves
  • Dash salt
  • 3 tablespoons 2% milk

Directions

  1. In a small saucepan, combine the first nine ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Discard bay leaf.
  2. For dumplings, in a small bowl, combine the flour, parsley, baking powder, cloves and salt. Stir in milk just until moistened. Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls onto simmering chicken mixture. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in a dumpling comes out clean (do not lift the cover while simmering).
