What You Need

slices  OSCAR MAYER Bacon, chopped
whole  chicken (3 lb.), cut up
jar  (16 oz.) green salsa
can  (10.5 oz.) chicken broth
lb.  prepared corn masa dough
cup  KRAFT Shredded Cheddar Cheese
cup   chopped fresh cilantro

Make It

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.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

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.
