I had made a chicken stew to use for several preparations, one of which was to make Chicken and Dumplings, so I only used the dumpling part of this recipe. The dumplings were light and had a delicious (‘perfect’ in my book) texture and flavor. I used melted unsalted butter instead of oil, and used a scant teaspoon of salt. I also cooked them close to 30 minutes. Just wonderful. DH was very suspicious – his experience had always been with heavy, gooey dumplings – but he loved this. The secret to a light dumpling is to never lift the lid until they’re done (just like cooking rice). Thanks for a great recipe for an old standard.
This is one of our all-time favorite recipes, and for good reason: it’s a modern take on a comforting classic. Browning the chicken first gives the dish its flavor, and eliminates the need for chicken broth. Here’s how it works: you’ll season the chicken and brown it in batches, then transfer it to a plate. Then, you’ll add your veggies to the pot with the chicken drippings, which will give them all sorts of delicious flavor. And let’s not forget the dumplings. It takes just six pantry ingredients (plus a pinch of salt and pepper) to create fluffy, delicious dumplings that make the soup simply irresistible.
