    Humbert's Chicken & Dumplings

    I have made this a couple of times. Its perfect for a rainy day.



    CHICKEN AND DUMPLINGS


    3 tablespoons real butter
    1 cup flour
    1 tsp baking powder
    cup plus 2 tablespoons milk
    finely chopped dill
    1 tsp dried thyme
    salt and pepper to taste
    6 chicken thighs
    coarse chopped large onion
    1 chopped or sliced large carrot
    cup of chopped celery or Chinese celery
    cup frozen peas

    First I cooked the chicken pieces in enough water to cover for about 40 minutes until the meat is easily removed from the bone. You can add salt and pepper to the water. Reserve the chicken stock and remove the chicken from the bones and toss the skin and bones or give them to the dogs. Fork the chicken into bite size pieces and set aside.

    In a large covered pot or dutch oven, sweat the onion and carrots and celery in the butter for a few minutes, don’t brown or overcook. Add cup flour, stir and cook the mixture over low heat until the flour coats everything and it looks absorbed. Then add about 2 cups of the stock and cook over medium heat. Add the chicken. Season with thyme, salt and pepper. Add more stock if it looks too thick. Simmer, covered for about 20 minutes until the carrots are nearly done. Add the peas at this point.

    Dumplings:

    Mix 3/4 cup of flour with the baking powder, a little salt and the dill. Stir in the milk until totally absorbed. The mixture should be wet and loose.

    Spoon dollops of the dumplings on top of the chicken ‘soup’. Simmer covered for about 20 minutes.

    Sounds good, especially the dumplings. Not had them for ages and just 5 minutes ago Ms Bangyai was scowling that she didn't know what to cook tonight. Good timing.

    Thanks so much for the easy dumpling recipe. I made beef stew last night, and those dumplings would have made it perfect.

    It looks a bit bland, add salt and pepper to taste ?

    Depends on the dumpling. There are many ways to make them.

    It eats great despite your comments.
