Delight in the savory comfort of Tomato Basil Chicken and Dumplings. Learn how to make this hearty dish with tender chicken, aromatic basil, and fluffy dumplings.
Begin by searing boneless, skinless chicken breasts in a hot pan with olive oil until they're golden brown on both sides.
In the same pan, sauté chopped onions and minced garlic until they're fragrant and softened.
Stir in canned tomatoes (crushed or diced) and chopped fresh basil leaves. This infuses the dish with tomato goodness and aromatic basil.
Add tomato paste and chicken broth to create a flavorful base. Season with salt and black pepper to taste.
Allow your Tomato Basil Chicken mixture to simmer until the flavors meld and the chicken is tender.
While the chicken simmers, prepare the dumplings by mixing all-purpose flour, baking powder, milk, and a pinch of salt.
