Chicken and Dumplings from Scratch
Impress your family with this rich and creamy Chicken and Dumplings recipe, they'll never believe you made it from scratch!"I wanted to create a chicken and dumplings recipe that was creamy, rich, and thick without all of the fat of traditional versions. Thickening the base was the challenge. Relying solely on cornstarch produced a gluey consistency and thin flavor, and using all flour created pasty results. So I settled for a little of each to achieve the thickness and texture I wanted. Toasting the flour, a process similar to making a dry roux, added some richness. Then I finished the dish with a splash of cream for flavor." -Kathryn ConradNeed comfort food? This chicken and dumplings recipe takes time, but it's worth the effort.
