The “sniffles” and “coughs” have had a party at my house this past week. So, its obvious that we need chicken stew, even if it is 90+ degrees outside. This is really good stuff! My family loves it! Especially the dumplings!
2-1/2 to 3 lbs. chicken thighs, or chicken breast
5 c. water
4 new red potatoes (or whatever you have)
2-3 stalks celery
1 med. onion
10 oz. pkg. frozen peas
1-1/2 c. all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. salt
3 Tbsp. butter or margarine, softened
3/4 c. milk
1/4 c. chopped fresh parsley
In Dutch, or pot, place chicken; cover with wter. Cover and cook over med heat until fork tender. Meanwhile chopped veggies. If using the red potatoes, leave the peel on! (I didn’t have any the afternoon when I made this pot.)
When chicken is done, remove from broth; skim fat.
