Smoked Chicken Stew with Herb Dumplings

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
This is one of the recipes I tried this weekend for the "throwdown", but decided on my other recipe instead. Hope you all will try this, it's different and very, very delicious!

Here's a Q-View and recipe to follow:

  • 8 cups chicken stock
  • 8 slices bacon, chopped
  • 1 lb leeks (white part only), cut into ½ inch-thick slices
  • 3 stalks celery, cut into 1/2 inch-thick slices
  • 2 carrots, cut into 1/2 inch slices
  • 1 lb unpeeled red potatoes, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 turnip, minced
  • 12 oz smoked chicken, shredded (we used Pecan wood)
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1-1/2 tsp dried tarragon
  • 2 tsp fresh thyme leaves
  • 1/3 cup minced fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp white pepper
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 tbsp herbes de Provence
  • 1/2 cup milk (room temp)
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 3 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
  • Bring the stock to a simmer in a large stockpot
  • Brown the bacon in a Dutch oven until lightly crisp
  • Remove the bacon, but keep some of the fat; add the leeks and sauté for 5 minutes
  • Add the celery and the carrots and sauté for 5 minutes
  • Add the potatoes, turnip, and warm stock and bring to a boil; cook for 10 minutes
  • Add the chicken, salt, tarragon, and thyme; return to a simmer
  • Cover and cook at a low boil until the potatoes are tender
  • Stir in the parsley, bacon, and cream; add the white pepper
  • Stir the flour and baking powder together in a bowl
  • Stir in the salt and herbs
  • Beat the milk, butter, and eggs together in another bowl
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients; mix well
  • Stir in the cheese
  • Place the dumplings by spoonfuls on the top of the stew
  • Cover and cook for 10 minutes; dumplings are done when they are plump and firm
