Use diced chicken thighs instead of diced chicken breast.

Beautiful and so easy!
Make a massive batch so that you have some ready next time the temperature drops outside and you crave something warm and comforting! The dumplings are so easy and surprisingly good considering no suet
Cooked this in my instant pot which was super easy and quick
I popped the dumplings in after pressure cooking for 20 minutes and they were perfect 😍
Zesting some lemon in with the juice add some extra zing to the dish.
Such an easy tasty recipe
