whole chicken cut up
whole dried red chili pepper, seeded and diced
4 (14.5 ounce) cans
The heavy cream gives it a nice flavor but I found the dumplings to be bland and the broth thinner than what I am accustomed to. I will use to broth recipe again but will thicken it with instant mashed potatoes and make my usual drop dumplings with poultry seasoning. My family liked it.
Really helped me through the divorce.
This is the best chicken stew recipie I have ever eaten. I adapted the recipie slightly by using 10 oz. egg noodles in place of the dumplings (which I didn't care for), and increasing the broth, and it was a hit. Every bit worth the effort it takes to make it.
Good, but I just can't understand why anyone would discard all those veggies. I kept them in. Also added some herbs to the dumplings at other's suggestions. They were the best part of the dish I think. The chicken and gravy and veggies were good of course, just nothing special.
OH MY!!! This recipe was incredible. I had very hard to please chicken n dumpling experts and boy, did I impress my mother in law with this creamy and delicious recipe. I recommend homemade mashed potatoes with heavy cream as a side. YUM!
It didnt work out exactly like the recipe, but it still turned out great!
This is a hit at my house. I make it dairy free by using coconut milk to make the dumplings and added some ginger and cumin to the stew. Thickened it once with leftover sweet potato and added curry. Delicious!
minus the carrots, which I think are better left out... this is the exact recipe I made over a year ago for the first time and I still get requests on at least a monthly basis to make it again. It's become a staple, thank you :)
