    Annacia's Note:

    Real comfort food that is good for you! How good is that? Warming and homey and kinda makes you want to snuggle into your flannel P.J.'s. I always add a bit of powdered chicken soup base to give it that final flavor boost.

      We enjoyed this. Made a few changes. I sauteed the onions with some garlic, used chicken stock instead of water and didn't add any cloves as I'm not fond of them in savory dishes. Per the comments about not enough sauce I used a total of 8 cups of broth, since I doubled the recipe. Regarding doubling, that made too many dumplings and I couldn't fit them all into my pot. Next time I'll double everything except the dumplings. I'll also stick to just 1 tsp of basil as I found doubling that was a bit overpowering. Doubled, the recipe was enough to feed 5 or 6 adults. Lastly, I simplified the recipe by cooking everything, except the dumplings for about 20 minutes after boiling, then just added the dumplings and cooked for another 20 minutes. I didn't find a need to thicken, perhaps because the flour from the dumplings got mixed in the broth. Everything was cooked nicely and was less complicated not having to follow steps 2 through 7! The flavour of the stew was very good and I enjoyed the cornmeal dumpling texture. I look forward to making this again!

      Made for Healthy Choices 2008 ABC (May). We thought this would be better with several changes. There wasn't nearly enough stew to feed six people - next time I would double the stew ingredients and I would also make a thicker sauce and increase the amount. There just wasn't enough sauce with the veggies - it was kind of dry. The dumpling recipe was adequate and they were good - not sure if they were right or not because I"ve never made dumplings before. I would make this again with some of the above changes. Thanks, Annacia for giving me a place to start.

      I liked this one, but changed some things per other reviews and personal tastes. I did balance the veggies out more with more carrots and celery. I also used fresh cut green beans in place of the peas. Instead of water I used fat-free chicken broth and added a few cups more of it to stretch. I really upped the seasonings as well, more than doubled the basil, and added fresh garlic and some dried thyme. Boiling the chicken made it very tender and yummy. Made the dumplings a little less dense as well with a bit less cornmeal.
