Dairy & Gluten Free Chicken & Dumplings!

If you are in need of some warm comfort on these cold Winter days, look no further!! Seriously, I could have eaten this whole batch in one sitting!!

To make this a little more calorie and macro-friendly, I used light coconut milk, but for an even creamier version, you could use full fat!

Enjoy!
