Chicken and Dumplings

Have you heard the weather reports for this Thursday? The 60 degree weather we’ve experienced in February will give way to temperatures back in the 30’s. Snow anywhere from 6-10 inches. Have you gone to the food store to stock up on your bread and milk?

It’s amazing the stress the weatherpeople can render on the public. I considered going to the food store today, however, I’m hoping that by Friday the snow will be cleared away from the roads and I can pick whatever essentials I may need for the weekend. Friday appears to be the coldest day and then the temperature moves up to the low and mid 40’s. Weather like this calls for a one pot meal, something hearty and good for those perhaps under the weather.

Back in February 1994 there appeared in Gourmet Magazine a recipe for chicken and dumplings. It’s a hearty, flavorful dish. The addition of leeks and shallots and a touch of apple cider really  make this dish shine. The dill flavored dumplings topping the chicken type stew are light, not filling. It’s a one pot meal that takes approximately 45 minutes from start to finish to prepare.
