Chicken n Carrot Dumpling Stew Recipe

  • 1/2 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 celery rib, sliced
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 dash dried thyme
  • Dash pepper
  • 4 1/2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • DUMPLINGS:
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons shortening
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons finely grated carrot
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh parsley
  1. In a large saucepan, combine the chicken, broth, onion, celery, salt, thyme and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until chicken juices run clear and vegetables are tender. Combine flour and water until smooth. Stir into broth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1 minute or until thickened.
  2. For dumplings, in a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt; cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the milk, carrot and parsley. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls into simmering broth. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in a dumpling comes out clean (do not lift the cover while simmering).
