chicken and dumplings

Here are Chicken and Dumplings.

This is a recipe I'd never have considered making, but since I'm cooking my way through Everyday Food, I gave it a try. I've never tasted a dumpling before or known anyone to make one so it was exciting to try something totally new.

The ingredients that to into dumplings aren't too flashy. They are made up of flour, baking soda, salt, milk and dill and then dropped by tablespoonful into a chicken stew/soup. After leaving them to cook for 20 minutes they plumped right up and absorbed the flavour of the dish. It really was pretty cool. They tasted great too! I think I'll make this again when it's cold and snowy outside.
