The chicken and dumplings by Chrissy Teigen, the great desire

This recipe for chicken and dumplings comes from Chrissy Teigen’s new cookbook, “Cravings: Hungry For More.” I LOVED Chrissy Teigen’s first cookbook, so I knew I’d love the second. It’s just as good, if not better. It’s packed with delicious recipes and great photos that are sure to make you hungry for more. And I am a girl fan of Chrissy and John, they are great couple goals and have the cutest little family.

How to make homemade chicken and dumplings

To make chicken and dumplings, start with the value of a whole chicken from chicken, bones and everything. You use the chicken to create the most amazing broth for the soup, AND you shred the chicken so that the soup has beautiful large pieces of chicken.

First, season the chicken with salt and pepper and fry in a large saucepan. Add water, bay leaf, thyme, rosemary, salt and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for an hour. While the chicken is cooking, you have my permission to take a nap or read a book.

Filter the broth, using a sieve, and discard the fat if you want. Use two forks to pick the chicken from the bones.

Then you will fry the onion, carrots and celery and add to the broth, chicken meat, potato and cook until the broth thickens, it will take about 20 minutes. At this point, you can stir in thick cream to make the chicken and dumplings very rich and creamy. I say, go! Bring extra Comfort.

While the broth is simmering, make the dumpling dough. Dumplings are simple, you only need one egg, milk, butter, flour, baking powder and salt. The key to making fluffy dumplings is not to overmix the dough. The dough gets thick and that’s ok. If you mix the dumpling too much, you will end up with hard dumplings and no one wants a hard dumpling.

Pour the dumpling dough into the quivering soup and cook until the dumplings are soft and soft, about 15 minutes.
Divide the soup into bowls and enter the comfort zone!
