Chicken and Dumplings

Last night we had bacon sandwiches and since i figure everyone knows how to make those I didn't blog it lol.

Tonight we are having chicken and dumplings, rice (hubby is cajun after all), and cream corn.

Here is the chicken and dumplings recipe.

Brown your chicken pieces in a little oil. Season the chicken first, and pieces with bone in will give the gravy a better flavor. Add onions, bell pepper, and a little more seasoning. Saute a little till onions are translucent. Add chicken stock or water to cover chicken by about 1/2 inch. Simmer on medium low for about 45 minutes. Taste gravy and adjust seasonings if necessary.

Fluffy Dumplings

1 1/2 cups flour
1 tablespoon minced parsely
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg, if desired
2/3 cup milk
2 tablespoons oil
1 egg, slightly beaten

In medium bowl, combine first 5 ingredients. Stir in remaining ingredients just until dry ingredients are moistened. Drop dough by tablespoonfuls onto hot chicken that is slightly boiling. Cook covered, 12 to 15 minutes or until dumplings are fluffy and no longer doughy.
