    Props Chicken Stew and Cheese Dumplings

    Woke up this morning to another layer of snow on the ground, so no work so thought it was time for some comfort food. This is the ingredients for the stew





    3 skinned chicken joints
    l oz butter
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    Large onion
    2 carrots
    4 celery sticks
    1 pint chicken stock
    2 level tablespoon of plain flour
    1 leek
    1/2 lb mushrooms
    2 cloves of garlic


    Melt the butter with the olive oil in a large frying pan, and gently fry chicken for about ten minutes.

    Peel, cut dice or slice all your veggies





    Put your chicken into a casserole dish, and then throw all the vegetables into the frying pan and cook for about 5 -10 minutes until softened. In the meantime make up your chicken stock, I used chicken oxo for this.

    Add the flour to the pan and stir in well, then add your chicken stock and bring to the boil and season to taste. Add this to your casserole with the chicken and cook in an over Gas mark 4, 180 C or 350 F and cook for about 55 mins





    For the dumplings

    2oz self raising flour
    1oz shredded suet
    2 oz grated mature cheddar cheese
    pinch of salt
    3 tablespoons milk
    3 tablespoons water
    teaspoon of English mustard powder

    Empty flour into a bowl then mix in the suet, 3/4 of the cheese and the mustard powder and salt. Make a well in the centre, pour in the milk and water and mix to a smooth dough. Roll the dough into 4 balls.




    Increase the oven temperature to Gas Mark 6, 200 C or 400 F, and place dumplings in casserole, cover and cook for another 30 mins.





    After 30 mins remove cover from the casserole and sprinkle the remaing cheese on the top to brown off in the oven for 5 mins.

    Sprinkle meal with chopped parsley (I used coriander as had no fresh parsley) serve and have with a nice fresh buttered crusty roll. Bloody filling it was

    Enjoy

    Might want to double the ingredients for the dumplings as I just done enough for what I wanted. Also add some fresh parsley to them.

    hmmm, will do.

    Anyway I mixed mine with some rice, I also added potatos and yams into the mix. I also a couple of half chicken pieces, I like bone in the stew, just adds a little extra.

    Guess what I'm having for lunch.
