Number of Servings: 4


    8 oz chicken breast (1 whole) sliced thin against the grain
    4 cups homemade chicken stock (canned broth will work)
    2 T butter
    1/4 c flour
    2 carrots diced
    2 stalks celery sliced
    1/2 c frozen corn
    1/2 c frozen green beans
    handful frozen peas, optional
    2 T heavy cream, optional
    Kosher salt and pepper

    1 c flour
    3/4 t kosher salt
    1 t baking soda
    1/2 t poultry seasoning
    2 T cold butter cut into cubes
    3/4 c milk


Make a roux out of the butter and flour. Slowly whisk in the chicken stock. Bring to a simmer and add chicken, celery and carrots. Simmer 5 minutes while you make up dumpling batter.

In a food processor pulse the flour, poultry seasoning, salt and baking soda. Add butter cubes, pulse until you have very fine crumbs, like cornmeal. Pour flour mixture into a bowl and slowly stir in the milk. You want a fairly thick batter, similar in consistency of cookie dough.

Add the frozen veggies and cream to the stew. Stir well to incorporate.

Using a cookie scoop (or use a tablespoon) drop dumplings onto the top of the stew. You'll get about 12 dumplings. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes. DO NOT OPEN THE LID WHILE DUMPLINGS COOK The steam along with the simmering is what cooks and puffs the dumplings.
