Chicken and Dumplings

Now that the garden is all in it's time for me to get back into the swing of things and start posting again.  I have a few things I've made over the last month or so that have been sitting on the camera so I should be able to have a good stream of posts coming out.

First up is Chicken and Dumplings!

Chicken and dumplings is one of those classic comfort food dishes we all grew up eating at least one version of.  This recipe go together quickly with the help of a rotisserie chicken, some stores even save you the trouble of picking it off the bone which saves even more time!

Start off with some carrots and onions, and celery if you like it

Adding in some chicken stock and flour to help thicken the sauce up a bit

Add your shredded chicken and frozen peas

Mix up your dumpling dough

Drop spoon fulls of the dumpling mix into the chicken mixture

Stick it in the oven for 15 minutes

All that is left to do now is eat it up!

Here is the recipe....

This is what is in the chicken mix
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • Half of an onion diced
  • 1 1/2 cups carrots diced
  • 3/4 cup Italian flat leaf parsley chopped
  • 1/2 cup celery diced (optional)
  • 3 cups chicken stock
  • 3 Tablespoons AP flour
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded chicken
  • 1 1/4 cup frozen peas
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

Mix up this stuff in a bowl until just combines to make your dumplings
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/3 cup milk

Here is what you are gonna want to do with all that stuff:
  • Get a large skillet and heat up the oil over medium high heat
  • Add carrots, onion and celery if you are using it and cook until veggies are tender
  • Whisk the flour into the cold stock and then add it to the skillet, stir to prevent lumps
  • Cook over medium heat until the sauce thickens
  • Add chicken, peas, salt and pepper, stir it up
  • Pour everything into an oven safe dish
  • Drop spoonfuls of the dumpling mixture into your oven safe dish
  • Bake in a 400 degree oven for 15 minutes
