How to Make Chicken and Dumplings


  1. Prepare the flour, salt, pepper, thyme and paprika together in a bowl.
  2. Dice 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.
  3. Add 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.
  4. For the dumplings:
    Combine the flour, baking soda and salt in a separate bowl.
  5. Cook the milk and butter over a medium heat until it is just about to boil. Then pour over the flour mixture and combine.
  6. Create 1/2-inch balls from the mixture and place into the stew while it is cooking.
  7. You will know when the stew is done when the dumplings float to the surface. (Approximately 1 hour cooking time).
