Great flavor but I didn't like the fact that the dumplins stayed gritty from the cornmeal and you can't even tell there is cheese in them.The soup itself tasted great but next time I think I will stick with regular flour dumplins.I used a can of cream of celery instead of chicken because thats what I had and I loved the slightly creamy note it added.
Cyaos, by chance do you have the original recipe? I missed placed it and like the parsnips in it. I make this soup all the time and it turns out every time! Sometimes, I'll put in frozen egg noodles instead of making the dumplings. You need to add a bit more water and/or broth to the soup because the noodles will absorb liquid.
This was absolutely gorgeous!!! I have had this one saved for a while and boy was I missing out. The flavour was exceptional and I have to say perfect directions. I have never made dumplings before and my hubby is used to his mum's and he said they were gorgeous. Thanks there cyaos!! the only thing I did differently with the dumplings was to add some herbs as well as the cheese. They were very naughty for my usual diet, but so yummy, and well worth it. I also added some peas and I used parsnip instead of potato only because I had some to use up. Otherwise followed directions as stated. A great winter warmer and the perfect comfort food. We will be enjoying this one again this winter. Yum, Yum and Yum.
This was amazing! I wanted chicken & dumplings & hubby wanted chicken stew, so this seemed like a fair compromise. I added half a cup of cheese to the stew and an extra half cup of cheese to the dumpling mix. We both loved it! Thanks for the great recipe!
The stew is AWESOME!! We just didn't care for the dumplings. The stew is so rich & flavourful - perfect seasoning!! I used 3 cups of carrots because I wanted to use up what I had on hand. I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts because that's what we prefer. I made my chicken broth from Bovril's concentrate. At the end of the cooking time, I decided the stew looked a little boring so I microwaved a 14 oz. can of peas & added that - glad I did. As for the dumplings, the cornmeal seemed to be too overpowering - my husband was actually surprised that there was cheese in them because he said he couldn't taste it.
Made this GREAT TASTING stew for a couple of my neighbors who're housebound! Used 4 large chicken breasts instead of the thighs, then followed the recipe! I did my usual taste test before delivering it, so I KNOW it was a GREAT comfort food! Now I need to make it for myself sometime after PAC! [Made & reviewed for one of the chefs I adopted in this Spring's PAC]
