If you do not wish to use chicken stock, you can use just water or as I do use leftover vegetable cooking water from something like corn or brussells sprouts


Lightly saute the vegetables in a skillet with a little stock, add spices, butter spread and flour and stir until combined. Add chicken and stock and stir until thickened. Remove from stove.

Place all of the Dumpling ingredients in a bow and rub in the dairy spread until it resembles breadcrumbs. Add enough cold water to make a softish dough and with a small amount of flour make 12 small dumplings.

Bring the Chicken stew back to bubbling and add the dumplings. Cover and simmer for @ 10 minutes or until the dumplings are cooked


Serving Size: Makes 4 serves of @ 1 cup with 3 dumplings
