Chicken Stew With Dumplings

READY IN: 1hr 45mins
Recipe by LonghornMama

Thick, hearty dish that's wonderful cold weather comfort food. Recipe calls for cooking chicken for 1 1/2 hours, but I simmered only about 30 minutes. Also, I added peas just before cooking the dumplings. We don't like mushy peas. Posted by Elizabeth Durance on

Excellent Recipe. I use chicken stock instead of water.
