Chicken and dumplings!

I've always been a sucker for southern foods or comfort foods. Now my goal is to recreate all the foods I've always love in a healthy Paleo way! These chicken and dumplings are pretty close to the regular thing!

Soup
1 pot of boiling water
Teaspoon sea salt
2 stalks of celery
2 carrots
1 large onion
1 zucchini
3 chicken thighs
1 can or cup of natural chicken broth
Pepper to taste

Dumplings
1 cup almond flour
1/2 cup arrowroot powder
Pinch sea salt
2 eggs

Get soup started first, cut chicken into small pieces and add into boiling water. Add broth then prep all veggies into bite size pieces. All all into water and simmer for 20-25 minutes.

Start dumplings. In bowl add flour, arrowroot, salt then add eggs. Mix together then place in freezer for about 15 mins. Remove from freezer and spoon out mixture rolling into small balls. Place on plate then place back in freezer. For.another 15 mins until firm. Add dumplings to simmering pot of soup. Cover and simmer for 15 mins or until dumplings have puffed and floated to top of soup. Serve!

I personally was extremely pleasantly surprised by this recipe. Yummy! Both my kids loved it as well!
