How to Make Chicken and Dumplings

Step-by-Step

  • 1Prepare the flour, salt, pepper, thyme and paprika together in a bowl.
  • 2Dice the uncooked chicken meat and place into a large dutch oven, crock pot (on high heat), or stew pot with the flour, salt, pepper, thyme and paprika. Cook and stir until chicken just turns a bit brown.
  • 3Add the stock, cream, peas and carrots to the mixture, turn the heat down to a medium-low heat, and allow to simmer for about 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Stir occasionally.
  • 4For the dumplings:
    Combine the flour, baking soda and salt in a separate bowl.
  • 5Cook the milk and butter over a medium heat until it is just about to boil. Then pour over the flour mixture and combine.
  • 6Create 1/2-inch balls from the mixture and place into the stew while it is cooking.
  • 7You will know when the stew is done when the dumplings float to the surface. (Approximately 1 hour cooking time).
