7-Vegetable Chicken Stew with Dumplings

A delicious meal on a cold evening. You can also use skinless boneless chicken thighs if you prefer dark meat. I sometimes add mushrooms too, making it an 8-veg stew!

ingredients

directions

  • In a large pot, combine chicken, all veg except peas, stock and spices; bring to a boil over high heat.
  • Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, covered, for 20 minutes; stir in peas.
  • Meanwhile, in a food processor or by hand, make dumplings: combine flour, parsley, butter, baking powder and salt until mixture is in coarse crumbs; stir in milk, then drop by tablespoonfuls onto the hot stew; you should have about 6 mounds.
  • Cover pot and simmer-- don't boil hard and DON'T lift the lid-- for 15 minutes or until dumplings have risen.
  • Note: to reduce sodium content in this recipe, replace stock with water.

    I made this recipe exactly as written. It was just okay to me. Sorry!! :) I think it was lacking something. I ended up adding more seasonings. I agree with some of the previous reviews that the dumplings were kind of doughy and didn't seem done. I added the extra baking powder as suggested, and they still seemed cooked in the center, but a little too gooey on the outside.

    This was wonderful !!! I used diced turkey in mine.I have no idea what a rutabaga is so used broccoli. I read all the problems re the dumplings and generously added baking powder plus chopped herbs from the garden and it was a fabulous supper on a wintry Sunday night.

    Awesome! I omitted the peas and rutabega (didn't have any), and doubled the sweet potatoes. For the dumplings, I used 1 TB of baking powder, 3 TB of butter and added 1/2 tsp of Beau Monde seasoning instead of salt. Soooo good!! Thank you!

    Good! I made the recipe as stated, only I chopped my onions up pretty small as I don't like big chunks of them, and for the dumplings I used 1 tbsp of baking powder as another reviewer suggested. The stew was quite tasty - my fussy 4 yr old even ate most of his, but I don't think I would make the dumplings again. They didn't seem to have much flavor of their own and to me seemed to take on only the taste of the rutabagas. I will make the stew again only I will use a different dumpling recipe or just serve with biscuits instead. Thanks for posting.
