Chicken and Dumplings with Gravy (continued)

Ingredients (continued)

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

Directions

  • In a large Dutch oven, combine the first eight ingredients. Slowly
  • bring to a boil over low heat. Cover and simmer for 45-60 minutes or
  • until meat is tender, skimming the surface as foam rises.
  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, parsley, baking powder, salt and
  • nutmeg; stir in milk, egg and oil just until moistened.
  • Drop batter by tablespoonfuls onto simmering broth. Cover and simmer
  • for 12-15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in a dumpling comes
  • out clean (do not lift the cover while simmering). Remove the
  • dumplings and chicken with a slotted spoon to a serving dish; keep
  • warm.
  • Strain broth, discarding vegetables and bay leaf; reserve 2 cups for
  • gravy. (Remaining broth can be covered and refrigerated for up to 3
  • days or frozen for 4 to 6 months.)
  • Place reserved broth in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Combine
  • the flour, water, salt and pepper until smooth; gradually stir into
  • broth. Cook and stir over medium heat for 2 minutes or until
  • thickened. Serve with chicken and dumplings.
  • Yield: 4 servings.
