Chicken stew with dumplings
Woolworths rotisserie chicken, shredded
2 carrots, roughly chopped
2 stalks celery, roughly chopped
3 medium potatoes, diced
2 garlic clove, sliced thinly
1 onion, roughly chopped
Small handful thyme
2 tablespoons flour
1-2 L chicken stock
1 cup self-raising flour
2 tablespoons butter
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup milk
Preheat the oven to 180’c.
To a pot, add some butter along with a dash of oil. Add the carrots, celery, potatoes, garlic and thyme. Cook for 5mins until slightly softer and the onion begins to caramelize.
Sprinkle over the 2 tablespoons of flour and stir constantly. Top with chicken stock and then add the shredded chicken to the pot. Simmer for 20mins until the sauce starts to thicken.
While the stew simmers, make the dumplings. Place the self-raising flour, butter and salt in a food processor to combine. Pour in the milk until the mixture comes together to form a dough. Form 8-10 small balls and place in the stew, cover with a lid and place in the oven for 20mins until the dumplings have swelled and cooked. Try not lift the lid for at least 15mins until the dumplings have risen.
Garnish with fresh herbs.
