How to make Cozy Chicken And Dumplings
Step 1: Heat the vegetable oil in a 6-quart Dutch oven on medium-high heat. Once hot, add the chicken and cook until both sides are browned. Set aside when done.
Step 2: To the pot, add the carrot and onion. Cook for about 3 minutes until just tender. Next, add the garlic. Stir and continue to cook for another minute until aromatic.
Step 3: Adjust the heat to medium-low. Then, Stir in the butter and flour. Keep on stirring for 3 minutes to prevent any lumps.
Step 4: Add the chicken to the pot with any accumulated juices. Toss well to coat the chicken in the roux.
Step 5: Pour in the chicken broth and cream. Add the thyme and bay leaves. Bring everything to a simmer. Add the frozen peas once the soup is simmering. Put the lid on and continue to cook for another 15 minutes.
Step 6: For the dumplings, whisk the flour, baking powder, salt, pepper, and cream in a large bowl until the mixture comes into a single piece of dough.
Step 7: Scoop the dough using a large spoon or ice cream scoop. Into small round balls (about 1 inch or 2 1/2 cm in diameter), shape the dough. This yields about 14 to 16 dumplings.
Step 8: In the simmering soup, place the dough balls, ensuring the dough balls are not touching. Then, add the parsley. Replace the lid and allow the soup to simmer for additional 15 minutes until the dumplings are completely cooked.
Step 9: Into bowls, ladle the soup, adding 1 to 2 dumplings per serving. Enjoy!
