  • Heat 2 Tbsp. of the dressing in extra-large skillet or Dutch oven on medium-high heat. Add chicken, skin-sides down, and onions. Cook 4 min. on each side or until chicken is browned on both sides, stirring onions occasionally. Cover. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 15 min. Add remaining dressing and the boiling water; cover. Simmer an additional 15 min.; strain. Chop the chicken; discard skin and bones. Return the chopped chicken and strained liquid to skillet.
  • Sift flour, baking powder and salt into large bowl. Cut in shortening with pastry blender or two knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add milk; stir until mixture forms a stiff dough. Place on lightly floured surface; knead 8 to 10 times or until smooth. Roll out dough to 1/4-inch thickness; cut into 1-inch squares.
  • Add dumplings to the boiling soup; cover skillet with lid. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 40 min. or until dumplings are cooked through.

Serve this hearty soup with a mixed green salad and a glass of fat-free milk.
