Ingredients

3 cups low-sodium chicken broth

1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, diced

1 small onion, diced

2 large carrots, diced

3 celery ribs, diced

1 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning

1 12 ounce bag frozen mixed vegetables

1 cup biscuit mix OR 1 cup flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder, ¾ teaspoon salt

1/2 cup low-fat milk, plus 1-2 tablespoons milk as needed

Instructions

1. Before you begin, wash your hands, surfaces, utensils, produce, and tops of cans.

2. In a large pot, heat broth over medium-high heat and bring to a boil.

3. Add chicken, onion, carrots, celery and Italian seasoning.

4. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook 8-10 minutes, uncovered, or until chicken is no longer pink and reaches 165 degrees.

6. In a small bowl, combine biscuit mix (or flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt) and milk. Mix well until a soft dough forms. If dough is too dry, add one tablespoon of milk at a time until it comes together.
