Chicken Dumplings Simmered in Broth

Andy Anderson !


Okay, this recipe is not chicken & dumplings, these are chicken dumplings, and they are served with an awesome broth.

I love this cold weather because it gets me into my mad (cooking) scientist mode.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

  2. Add all the ingredients for the dumplings into a food processor, fitted with an S-blade.
  3. Use one-second pulses until the ingredients are minced together, but don’t over process, about 6 to 8 pulses.
  4. Roll two tablespoons of the mixture together into a ball, place on a parchment-lined tray, and repeat for the remaining mixture. You should have eight chicken dumplings
  6. Add the broth ingredients to a large pot, and bring to a slow boil.
