Chicken and Dumplings? What's your way?
I've promised chicken and dumplings for an elderly relative with tooth issues. Unfortunately, when I asked my mother about it, she seemed vague and asked me how I intended to make it, rather than telling me how she used to make it. Sigh. I really don't want to boil the chicken -- I can steam poach it in my steam oven which is a lot easier and should be equally tender for the tooth challenged. I was thinking about getting boneless breasts. They're not as tasty, but easier and prettier. I have plenty of chicken stock for the gravy, too. I figure I'll reduce it with some vegetables then simmer with the chicken and more vegetables while the dumplings are cooking. Or something like that. Right now I'm just working up my courage to put enough salt and fat in it to be tasty enough, without making it unhealthy.
How do you make chicken and dumplings?
