Chicken 'n' Carrot Dumpling Stew Recipe

It's been many years since I clipped this recipe from a magazine. It's always welcome at a family get-together.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 40 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 celery rib, sliced
  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 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

Directions

  • 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 a meat thermometer reaches 170°. 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 large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt; cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the milk, carrot and parsley.
  • 3. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto 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). Yield: 2 servings.
