    Marisa in Salem, OR's Note:

    This make the best Chicken & Dumplings i have ever had! I think the recipe came from a food network show. The recipe is time consuming, but well worth the effort. You can buy a chicken that has already been roasted from the store for a bit of a shortcut.

    Roasted Chicken

    Chicken Stock

    Dumplings

    Supreme Sauce

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Roasted Chicken: Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Remove the neck and giblets from the cavity of the chicken and discard. Rinse the chicken under cold water, inside and out. Pat dry thoroughly with paper towels. Season the body and cavity of the chicken generously with salt and pepper.
    2. 2
      In a small bowl, mash together the butter, lemon juice, and chopped herbs. Rub the herbed butter all over the chicken, as well as under the skin. Put the lemon halves, onion, garlic, and whole herbs inside the chicken cavity, for added flavor. Tie the legs together with kitchen twine. Place the chicken, breast side up, in a roasting pan fitted with a rack. Roast for 1 hour until the meat is no longer pink. When cool enough to handle, shred the meat, discarding the skin and set aside. Reserve the bones for chicken stock.
    3. 3
      Chicken Stock: To prepare the stock, coat a large stockpot with olive oil and place over medium heat. Add the vegetables and saute for 3 minutes. Add the reserved chicken bones, water, and herbs; simmer for 1 hour. Strain the stock to remove the solids and set aside.
    4. 4
      Dumplings: To prepare the dumplings: sift dry ingredients together in a large bowl. In a small bowl, lightly beat the eggs and milk together; pour the liquid in the dry ingredients and gently fold. Mix just until the dough comes together, the batter should be thick and cake-like.
    5. 5
      Supreme Sauce: To prepare Supreme Sauce: In a Dutch oven, melt butter and heat oil over medium heat. Add carrot, celery, garlic, and bay leaves. Saute until the vegetables are soft, about 5 minutes. Stir in the flour to make a roux. Continue to stir and cook for 2 minutes to coat the flour and remove the starchy taste. Slowly pour in the chicken stock, 1 cup at a time, stirring well after each addition.
    6. 6
      Let sauce simmer until it is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 15 minutes. Stir in heavy cream.
    7. 7
      Fold the reserved shredded chicken into the sauce and bring up to a simmer. Using 2 spoons, carefully drop heaping tablespoonfuls of the dumpling batter into the hot mixture. The dumplings should cover the top of the sauce, but should not be touching or crowded. Let the dumplings poach for 10 to 15 minutes until they are firm and puffy.
    8. 8
      Season with freshly cracked black pepper and garnish with chopped parsley before serving.

      This came out very well. I did the recipe as printed. I'm not sure it was worth an entire day of cooking! However, next time I roast a chicken, I know exactly what I'm going to do with the leftovers :) The dumplings are very good.

      This is a great recipe. I changed it slightly by putting my chicken w/herbs in foil to cook to catch the flavorful juices. For the chicken stock I used 6 c of prepared vegetable broth and 2 cups of chicken broth. I added the bones of the chicken and the herbs/lemon/onion and drippings from the foil wrap to make the chicken stock. The dumpling recipe is just perfect. My husband says we should have this at least 6 times a year. Thanks for the recipe.

      This is Tyler Florence's recipe, and the one I always use. It takes a lot of time to make everything from scratch, but it is well worth it. This has had great reviews even in the south, where the thick, noodle-like dumplings are more common than these fluffy ones. Take a weekend day, and try this out...you will be glad you did!
