Keto Chicken and Dumplings Recipe Instructions
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. My husband acquiesced to trying this diet plan being this was short term and his will power is that of a gnat. He dropped 6 lbs in five days and willing to do it again after a one day break.
So far so good! Now I have always wanted to try The food is actually pretty good. Now I have always wanted to try Nutrisystem but its pretty pricey. This is much more affordable and the food again is rather tasty. If you stick to the plan its basically portion control it does work. Tastes like college food. I knew I needed a reset and that my portions were out of control. Enter, the Turbo Jumpstart Box. First off, delivery was super quick and everything comes in the box pictured.
I didn't experience any missing items. You will need to supplement Lunch and Dinner with either 2 cups of raw veggies or 1 cup of cooked veggies! I happen to be a big fan of zucchini, cauliflower, broccoli and squash so this isn't a problem for me but, it is something to keep in mind. Breakfast was the maple oatmeal which was a little sweet and supposed to be cooked with fat free milk.
I didn't have that so, it was cooked with water. It might be less sweet with milk? For lunch, I had the tuna salad over chopped romaine with cucumbers. It was really tasty and I loved the water chestnuts in the package. I was really hungry by 3PM, but I remembered to make the Turboshake and was ok. Dinner was the meat ravioli with zucchini.
I really was not a fan, but I didn't feel hungry after so that was good. Breakfast was the biscotti bites, which I felt like were nice as a snack but maybe would not be satisfying for everyone. They were sweet and crunchy, but I could tell they had packed some protein powder in them. I was really under calories yesterday, so I had a soft boiled egg a little after. Lunch was the loaded mashed potatoes, that I mixed in a cup of steamed broccoli.
I used to eat instant mashed potatoes as a very poor college student during cram sessions; these are worse. My favorite part was the broccoli. The whole thing had a very odd powdered cheese taste and the 'bacon bits' were super hard. I'm glad I got that one out of the way. Dinner was the Hearty Beef Stew. It took a little longer than the 90 seconds-ish to heat up but ended up not being too bad for canned soup.
Breakfast was the Cinnamon Raisin Baked Bar. Very strong protein bar taste. Not too sweet though. Lunch was broccoli cheese rice. Honestly, I was looking forward to this and I think I just can't get over the powdered cheese that keeps popping up. I ended up mixing in my broccoli and squash to help the taste.
I was super hungry at that point so it did not feel like enough. Dinner was the pasta fagioli, which I honestly thought was really good!
I added a dash of garlic powder, but really enjoyed it overall. I had the rest of my steamed broccoli and squash from lunch with it. Breakfast is the Apple Strudel Bar-this is the best bar so far. I wish I had another one. Its sweet but exactly what I was craving this morning!
Lunch was my favorite so far too- white cheddar mac and cheese. Wish I was looking forward to another of these tomorrow instead of the chocolate fudge bar. I also figured out that I like the Turboshake much better when I have blended it with the ice and water instead of just shaking it. It turned out light and fluffy! I had the meatballs 4 with marinara over some zoodles and chopped red pepper.
Side of broccoli slaw topped with salsa. It could have used more sauce and the meatballs were very soft. Day 5 Final Day: Peanut butter granola bar for breakfast was TINY and very sweet.
Do I sound upset? A bar and a salad is not my favorite lunch ever. Dinner was the chicken pasta parmesan which was surprisingly good!
Big squares of chicken and the sauce tasted like real cheese. Anyway, this was my very long and in depth review. I hope it was helpful and gives you an idea of what the food is like.
I would do it again but will probably give myself a break at this point. I didn't have a lot of social commitments during the week, but this would be hard to sustain had I been more active or coming and going through the week.
I liked the portion control and didn't often feel hungry when I went to bed, but I just got tired of breakfast bars and processed cheese. It was great to have veggies as sides at least. I also don't have a scale so, I have no idea if I lost any weight. It was just 5 days so, how much could it really be? I feel a little less puffy? Anyway, it was convenient and not very expensive.
Would recommend for a quick reset, but you'll be burnt out by the end of the week probably. The tuna was disgusting, the beef stew looked like cat food and tasted horrible! It did help me understand that portion control is key as most of us I think tend to eat nearly 3 x what an average portion should be. I really like not having to think about cooking and you do seem to be eating all the time I'm glad I did it but int he future I would have to buy the food separately because man some of it was really bad!
I wanted to lose 10 pounds and try the Nutrisystem products and this was the perfect solution! The food was delicious and I lost 8 pounds! I ordered a second week to lose the rest of my weight! This is my favorite of the Amazon available Nutrisystem 5 day system. This is a great way to try the Nutrisystem program before you commit to the entire program. It is easy to follow and all you need is to buy vegetables to add to your dinner.
I have yet to find a Keto Chicken and Dumplings and I wanted some. Actually, my youngest has a small cold, and a chicken soup of some sort would really help her out so this is what inspired this Keto Chicken and Dumplings Recipe today.
She is my Keto Kid! I want the flavors of this recipe but it must be ketofied! This recipe can be made really easy if you purchase a precooked rotisserie chicken. I tend to buy one once a week from Costco. If you do have a precooked chicken, the recipe is almost the same.
You will need to adjust to the recipe to include 4 cups of chicken broth instead of two for the precooked chicken. You just skip the first part of this recipe. There is a printable version of this Keto Chicken and Dumplings Recipe at the very bottom of this post.
If you want to see the process photos for the beginning part of this recipe, head over here to see them: Homemade Chicken and Dumplings from Scratch recipe. Heat the oil in a large dutch oven. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Brown the chicken about 4 to 6 minutes per side. Transfer the chicken to a plate for later.
Add the chopped celery, onions, thyme and garlic to the drippings in the dutch oven and cook until the vegetables are soft. This will take about 5 to 7 minutes. Add 4 cups of water and 2 cups of chicken stock in with the vegetables. Shred the chicken with a fork discard the bones and add it back to the dutch oven. Add the bay leaves too. Bring the mixture to a simmer and cook about another 20 to 30 minutes until the chicken is fully cooked.
In a separate smaller bowl, combine the egg yolks with the baking powder and Xantham powder. Mix it until the ingredients become smooth. Mix it with a spoon until it becomes too thick to mix. Dump the dough onto a nonstick surface. I use a silicone mat. Use your hands to knead the dough until it becomes nice and smooth as seen in the photos below.
If you make this dough too thin, it would resemble dumplings when you add it to the hot soup. Use a pizza cutter to gentle cut strips of dough for your dumplings. This dough is really easy to cut.
