Ninja Foodi Chicken Dumplings recipe is a perfect example of comfort food at its best. Chicken breasts, oversized plump dumplings, with a lot of vegetables in a sweet gravy make a meal that’s hot and filling. This style of chicken and dumplings has a twist on the traditional because after the base of the soup is made, I add a delightful crunch to each bite by lightly crisping the dumplings.
How to Make Chicken and Dumplings in a Ninja Foodi
You can use any type of chicken you have on hand for this Nina Foodi chicken and dumplings recipe. You can use a blend of chicken breast, wings, thighs, or legs meat or you can select a single cut of the chicken. It is totally your choice and your preferences. I like using boneless and skinless chicken thighs because in my option they have the best flavor.
