Top-ranked recipe named "Chicken and Dumplings"
easy and delicious
"The instructions are missing what to do with the first 1/2tsp of salt and 1/4tsp of pepper but I assumed it was to put on the chicken prior to browning and it workes out well for me. Also, was leary about the 2tsp of butter for the dumplings and thought maybe it was 2 Tbsp lile most all sticks of butter measure. I can say it is really 2 tsp like the recipe says and not 2 Tbsp that you would measure on the sticks of butter on the wrapper. This was very yummy and I plan to make it again."
Chop the chicken, onion and potato and set aside.
Spray a large saucepan (such as what you would use for pasta) with a little oil and set over medhigh heat. Add the chicken and cook until browned, about 5 minutes. Add the onion and cook until softened. Add the 1 T flour and stir constantly for 1 minute. Stir in the broth and the potato and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer 15 minutes.
While simmering, prepare the dumplings: Mix the flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Add the milk, butter and parsley and make a soft dough.
When the 15 minutes is up, add the peas and carrots and bring to a boil. Simmer 2 minutes. Now drop the dough in rounded teaspoons, making 8 dumplings. Cover the pan and simmer 8 minutes. Uncover and simmer another 3 minutes. P8.

Mrsswill 4 months agoI made a few adjustments. I used a breast of chicken roasted and ready, and added a couple of sprinkles of trader Joes everyday spice with the chicken, fresh carrots, garlic & celery. I also subbed almond milk. I cooked it in a Dutch oven and worked out perfectly for the dumplings. I too, was doubtful about the consistency at first, but it turned out like perfect traditional chicken and dumplings! Yum!
maximusg 1 year agoTurned out GREAT, I switched up the recipe though, used a full can of cambells cream of chicken instead of chicken broth, swtiched the peas for celery, and I used chicken breast instead of theighs, Everything came out splendid.
TrueAngel 1 year agoThumbs up from my picky eaters. They loved it! I just added one more cup of chicken broth.
jlburgart 2 years agoThis was really good! The best dumplings I've made, ever. They were moist and light. I made my own chicken stock which helped with the flavor. Be sure to use plenty of salt. I also doubled the recipe on the dumplings and upped the chicken stock by half. Easy to make too.
Bill3508 2 years agoKind of different for chicken and dumplings but its very good. Dumplings are very light. You could also use this without the dumplings to do a chicken pot pie. Also double up on the pepper.
Ange325 2 years agoVery good and easy to make, the only thing is it needs a little more salt and pepper, but other than that my husband and I love it.

JenahGrace 2 years agoReally good! I agree with most people that more broth is needed to make it a soup rather then a stew but all in all a really great recipe. Dumplings were perfect!
