Smoked Chicken Stew with Dough Boys ( Dumplings )

We like our stew with a thicker juice almost like a gravy. Have not had dough boys sense I was a boy and Mom would make them for us. It was a real treat back than. And is today also.

So I smoked some thighs at 330/345 deg. with Mesquite chunks until IT of 173 deg. Just pepper, Lawry's seasoning salt and Summer Savory for coating.
Diced up some onions, celery, sautéed, Removed the skin from the chicken sliced and diced it and added to the pot.

Chopped Gr peppers, Red peppers and added to the pot cook until tender. Remove this from pot.
Add water and cook up the root veggies
Chop /dice potatoes, turnip, and carrots, boil till tender. Debone the chicken thighs.
Save 1 cup of the broth for later
Now add everything to the pot , add soya sauce, chicken soup base, black pepper, summer savory

Taste for flavor , mmmmmmm
Mix in a bowl the saved broth and flour to make a thickener, pour this into the pot
of the whole mix, and stir . This will thicken as it cooks up.

So the stew is done , and you could eat it now .....BUT I wanted Dough Boys.

In a bowl mix
1 cup flour
2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup milk
I added 2 tablespoons of fine chopped parsley
mix and drop by spoonful into simmering pot . Cover and DO not open for 15 minutes

The stew was really good and the smoked chicken gave it a real nice full flavor . It was a 2 bowl meal for both of us.

Thanks for looking, Great meal for this a little cooler day of working outside.

Thanks Adam for the like and the comment

It was really good with the smoked chicken, I thought Mona would be upset that I
smoked the chicken and added it to the stew. But I guess she was ok with it as she had
2 servings ,smaller bowls than I had. but went back for seconds.

I was going to use Apple wood , but I really like the smell of Mesquite so that is what I used

I dont think you can ruin any meal with smoked meat in it.

That's what I have told her before, but than I got the eye roll .
So end of conversation. and moved on.
She is coming around with the smoke flavor , Plus I am getting better at dialing in the
smoke chunks. more flaver and not just smoke taste

Your stew looks just great. Smoked chicken and thickened broth has to be a winner.

It was real good and the smoked chicken took it up a notch, and we always thicken our stews

You've inspired me David. Don't know why I hadn't thought to thicken the broth before, but I'll try it in the future. :emoji_thumbsup:

Glad to hear that something I cook makes others think about trying or even using part of it to make something else of their own

That's how I do some of mine. Blending a few things I have read or seem by others .
