Ingredients for Chicken and Dumplings Recipe (Image: thenovicechefblog)


  1. Bring a large pan or pot in an oven and add some butter or olive oil to it over medium-high heat.
  2. You can add the chopped onion, carrot, and celery to the pot or pan and cook for about 5 to 7 minutes until the onion softens and turns light brown. Add thyme to the pot and the 4 cups of chicken broth or chicken stock.
  3. Add broth, butter, poultry seasoning, onion powder, garlic powder, thyme, parsley, basil in the pan. Add salt and pepper as per your taste. Combine all of these very well. [ Tips: Add 2 or 3 bay leaves for more nice flavor.]
  4. In a bowl take 1 cup of flour into the warm milk and whisk well so that it should be smooth, with no lumps. Or if you don’t want to add milk, add the flour with the sleeve of the broth from the pot and mix well, and put these back on the pot and stir.
  5. Throw the frozen peas and shredded chicken, mix. For seasoning salt and pepper add in it and cook for 5 minutes.
  6. When the broth soup is cooking, let’s make dumplings, combine flour, baking powder, salt, melted butter, and 1 cup milk in a mixing bowl. Keep in mind that not to over mix otherwise it will be turned out too solid or frequent.
  7. Drop dumplings using a spoon at a time into the pot or use a small cookie scooper to put the flour mixture batter in it. You have to remember that do not add too much batter of dumplings at once because the dumplings will double in size when cooked, so make them as large or small as you like. Cook it for few minutes until the dumplings are well cooked.
  8. Remove the chicken soup and dumplings from the oven and let some chicken soup and dumplings in a bowl and enjoy the day!
