  • Cook and stir bacon in Dutch oven or large deep skillet on medium heat until crisp. Remove bacon from pan with slotted spoon; drain on paper towels. Remove drippings from pan; reserve 1 Tbsp. drippings for later use.
  • Add chicken, in batches, to pan; cook 3 min. on each side or until browned on both sides. Return all chicken to pan. Stir in salsa and broth. Bring to boil; cover. Simmer on medium-low heat 15 min. Meanwhile, mix masa dough, cheese and reserved bacon drippings; shape into 18 balls, using about 1 Tbsp. dough for each.
  • Add dough balls to chicken mixture; cook 5 to 8 min. or until dumplings and chicken are done (165ºF). Remove from heat. Stir in bacon and cilantro.

Special Equipment Needed

Serving Suggestion

Serve with a crisp mixed green salad tossed with your favorite KRAFT Lite Dressing to round out the meal.


Dry corn masa is a great substitute for the fresh masa in this tasty recipe. Just mix 3/4 cup dry masa with enough water (about 1/2 cup) to make soft dough.

Special Extra

Stir in 2 cups cooked green beans with the dough balls.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Don's use the whole chicken it's a waste of time. Don's use the whole chicken it's a waste of time. Chicken breasts would work perfectly. I made my own dumplings from with 2 cups of Flour and 3/4 cup of ice water. Mix in cheese and drippings as directed. I substituted green salsa for regular store brand. Great meal on a chilly day.
