For this recipe, you really don’t need a lot! You probably already have most of it in your pantry, making this super quick and easy to grab last minute.

Even if you need everything on this list, you’ll be spending less than $10 (great for saving money) and will have enough servings to feed a family of 6! Say what!!!

See for yourself! This was my cart with the ingredients from Kroger, and if you already have the seasonings or anything else, it’ll be even LESS than that.

My mom actually found a great chicken and dumpling recipe, then edited it to make it fitting to them, and then I did the same so it doesn’t really even resemble the original.

We also chose to use vegetables too which you may not typically see, but between the chicken, dumplings, and yummy soup, your kids won’t even notice them. This is a fantastic way to make sure your kids are getting at least one serving of veggies into their day!!

This easy 20-minute chicken and dumplings is a great option that’s super budget friendly and doesn’t take a lot of prep time! But your family will think you spent hours preparing it. 😉
