Chicken and Dumplings image

My mom made a similar recipe for this comforting dish, and I still remember the wonderful aroma of chicken and dumplings cooking throughout the house. She didn't make it often, but when she did, what a treat. I especially loved the light, tender dumplings, which is still my most favorite part of this dish. (In a pinch, Bisquick dumplings are also very good). For those of you, like my good friend Cindy, who like a more Southern style of dumpling (heavier, chewier), the recipe is at the bottom. This recipe is from Steph's Country Kitchen Goodness. This is my favorite website for recipes.

The Best Chicken and Dumplings image

This is pure comfort food at its finest. Tender chunks of chicken and vegetables come together in a creamy, richly-flavored sauce with pillowy dumplings baked right on top. It's hearty but not too heavy and comes together from scratch in about an hour.

Time 1h

Yield 4 to 6 servings

Number Of Ingredients 21

2 tablespoons olive oil
3 medium carrots, halved lengthwise, sliced 1/2 inch thick
2 celery stalks, sliced 1/2 inch thick
1 medium onion, diced
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves, chopped
1 cup dry white wine
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole milk
1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1-inch pieces
4 1/2 cups homemade chicken stock (see Cook's Note)
1/4 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves, chopped, plus more for serving
1 cup frozen peas
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour (see Cook's Note)
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon garlic salt
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 cup whole milk


  • For the chicken: Heat the oil in a large Dutch oven or heavy-bottomed pot with a lid over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add the carrots, celery, onion, 1/2 teaspoon salt and about 10 grinds black pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables just begin to soften but don't take on any color, 4 to 5 minutes.
  • Stir in the garlic and thyme and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the wine and simmer until completely evaporated, 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in the butter until completely melted. Sprinkle the flour over the vegetables and stir until it is completely incorporated and a sandy paste forms. Pour in the milk and stir until the flour has been smoothly incorporated into the liquid.
  • Add the chicken and the chicken stock to the pot and stir to combine. Bring the mixture to a boil then lower the heat to medium-low and simmer until the chicken is cooked through, 15 to 20 minutes. Stir in the parsley and peas and remove from the heat.
  • For the dumplings: Whisk together the flour, baking powder, garlic salt, 1/2 teaspoon salt and about 10 grinds black pepper in a medium bowl. Stir in the melted butter until just combined, then add the milk and stir until a ball of dough forms.
  • Use a small ice cream scoop or measuring cup to scoop 10 balls of dough into the pot (about 2 tablespoons each). Cover the pot and simmer over medium-low until the dumplings have puffed up and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 10 to 15 minutes. Divide among bowls and sprinkle with more parsley.

Time 3h20m

Yield 6 servings

Number Of Ingredients 34

1 (3-pound) whole chicken
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 ounces unsalted butter, softened
1 lemon, halved and juiced; halves reserved
1/4-cup fresh chopped herbs, such as thyme, parsley and rosemary
1 onion, halved
4 garlic cloves, smashed
Fresh whole herbs, such as rosemary, thyme and parsley sprigs
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 carrots, cut in large chunks
2 celery stalks, cut in large chunks
1 onion, halved
1 garlic bulb, halved
Reserved chicken bones
2 quarts cold water
4 sprigs fresh parsley
4 sprigs fresh thyme
2 bay leaves
2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
3/4 to 1 cup buttermilk
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon oil
1/2 cup diced carrot
1/2 cup diced celery
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 bay leaves
1/4 cup flour
6 cups chicken stock
1/4 cup heavy cream
Freshly ground black pepper, for garnish
Chopped flat-leaf parsley, for garnish


  • For the chicken: Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Remove the neck and giblets from the cavity of the chicken and discard. Rinse the chicken under cold water, inside and out. Pat dry thoroughly with paper towels. Season the body and cavity of the chicken generously with salt and pepper.
  • In a small bowl, mash together the butter, lemon juice, and chopped herbs. Rub the herbed butter all over the chicken, as well as under the skin. Put the lemon halves, onion, garlic, and whole herbs inside the chicken cavity, for added flavor. Tie the legs together with kitchen twine. Place the chicken, breast side up, in a roasting pan fitted with a rack. Roast for 1 hour until the meat is no longer pink. When cool enough to handle, shred the meat, discarding the skin and set aside. Reserve the bones for chicken stock.
  • For the stock: Coat a large stockpot with olive oil and place over medium heat. Add the vegetables and saute for 3 minutes. Add the reserved chicken bones, water, and herbs; simmer for 1 hour. Strain the stock to remove the solids and set aside.
  • For the dumplings: sift dry ingredients together in a large bowl. In a small bowl, lightly beat the eggs and milk together; pour the liquid in the dry ingredients and gently fold. Mix just until the dough comes together, the batter should be thick and cake-like.
  • For the sauce: In a Dutch oven, melt butter and heat oil over medium heat. Add carrot, celery, garlic, and bay leaves. Saute until the vegetables are soft, about 5 minutes. Stir in the flour to make a roux. Continue to stir and cook for 2 minutes to coat the flour and remove the starchy taste. Slowly pour in the chicken stock, 1 cup at a time, stirring well after each addition.
  • Let sauce simmer until it is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 15 minutes. Stir in heavy cream.
  • Fold the reserved shredded chicken into the sauce and bring up to a simmer. Using 2 spoons, carefully drop heaping tablespoonfuls of the dumpling batter into the hot mixture. The dumplings should cover the top of the sauce, but should not be touching or crowded. Let the dumplings poach for 10 to 15 minutes until they are firm and puffy. Season with freshly cracked black pepper and garnish with chopped parsley before serving.

Chicken and Dumplings image

Chicken and dumplings are a family favorite! I remember when my mom used to make this dish using store-bought biscuits and a whole chicken. This is my version--made with boneless, skinless chicken thighs and homemade chive dumplings with dough that won't make you miss the pre-made kind!

Provided by Food Network

Categories     main-dish

Time 1h15m

Yield 4 servings

Number Of Ingredients 18

6 tablespoons unsalted butter
6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 medium yellow onion, diced
4 celery stalks, sliced 1/2 inch thick
4 medium carrots, peeled, sliced 1/2 inch thick
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 cloves garlic, chopped
6 cups chicken stock
1 bay leaf
1/2 bunch fresh parsley leaves, for serving
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
2 tablespoons vegetable shortening
2/3 cup buttermilk
2 tablespoons chopped chives
Nonstick cooking spray, optional


  • For the chicken: Heat a large braiser or Dutch oven over medium-high heat and add 4 tablespoons butter. Sprinkle the chicken thighs with salt and pepper and add to the pan. Cook until golden, turning once, about 3 minutes per side. Remove to a plate.
  • Add the remaining 2 tablespoons butter, the onion, celery and carrots and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently and scraping up the brown bits that cling to the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon, until the vegetables are coated in fat and slightly golden, about 3 minutes. Add the flour and stir until the vegetables are coated. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the chicken stock, bay leaf and browned chicken, along with any chicken juices at the bottom of the plate. Bring to a boil, lower to a simmer, cover and simmer until the chicken is tender and cooked through, about 45 minutes.
  • For the dumplings: Whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Using a fork, cut the shortening into the flour mixture. Slowly add the buttermilk, gently mixing to incorporate. Fold in the chives.
  • Use 2 forks to shred the chicken. When the chicken is ready, use 2 spoons sprayed with cooking spray if desired to add scoops of dumpling dough over the top of the stew, about 1 tablespoon each. Cover and simmer until the dumplings double in size, about 15 minutes. Remove from the heat, discard the bay leaf and garnish with parsley.

Chicken and Dumplings image

What makes this version of classic chicken and dumplings extra delicious is its long and slow simmer time. While this chicken and dumplings recipe will take about three hours to cook, everything comes together in a single Dutch oven, meaning this one-pot meal will require little clean-up afterwards. The chicken, celery, carrot, onion and parsley in this dish makes for a meaty, flavorful slow-cooked broth. Using Original Bisquick™ mix to make quick dumplings not only saves time but also produces light, fluffy dumplings for the topping. Use this beloved dish as the perfect excuse to gather around the table to make new memories with your family.

Time 1h

Number Of Ingredients 12

3 tablespoons butter
1 medium onion, cut into 1-inch pieces
5 medium carrots, cut crosswise into 1 1/2-inch pieces
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1 cup (spooned and leveled) all-purpose flour
1 can (14.5 ounces) reduced-sodium chicken broth
Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into 2-inch pieces
2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill, or 3/4 teaspoon dried dill weed
1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons milk
1 package (10 ounces) frozen peas


  • In a Dutch oven (or a 5- to 6-quart heavy pot with a tight-fitting lid), heat butter over medium. Add onion, carrots, and thyme. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is soft, about 5 minutes.
  • Add 1/4 cup flour and cook, stirring, 30 seconds. Add broth and bring to a boil, stirring constantly; season with salt and pepper. Nestle chicken in pot; reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, make dumplings: In a medium bowl, whisk together remaining 3/4 cup flour, dill, baking powder, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. With a fork, gradually stir in 1/2 cup milk to form a moist and soft batter. It should be just a little thicker than pancake batter and should easily drop from the tip of a spoon. (Add additional 2 tablespoons milk if too thick.) Set aside.
  • Stir peas into pot. Drop batter in simmering liquid in 10 heaping tablespoonfuls, keeping them spaced apart (dumplings will swell as they cook). Cover, and simmer until chicken is tender and dumplings are firm, 20 minutes. Serve.
