Chicken N’ Dumplings

chicken-n-dumplings

Chicken n’ Dumplings is definitely a fan favorite of our Cafe specials (served on Wednesdays), and in a busy season, Chef Daniel can serve upwards of 15 gallons of it and still run out at the end of the day. Any dish that calls for tender chicken and Loveless Cafe’s famous biscuits (this recipe has been adapted to use Loveless Cafe Biscuit Mix) is likely to please even the pickiest of eaters.

Ingredients

Directions

Prepare Loveless Cafe Biscuit Mix according to directions. Let the dough set in refrigeration to rest until needed. You can even prepare the dough the night before, keep it covered and in the refrigerator until needed.

Cook the chicken breasts until fully cooked in the chicken broth. Remove, cool and cut into quarter-sized pieces and set aside, keeping the stock hot until needed.

In a large stockpot, sauté onion and celery in butter until translucent. Add the hot chicken stock, thyme, sage, salt and pepper; bring to a boil before reducing to a simmer. Take your prepared biscuit mix and scoop the dough using two small spoons to create dollops that are approximately the size of a nickel, or use a small scoop. Add a batch of 12-15 dumplings at a time; allow to simmer for approximately 5 minutes before adding another batch. Repeat until you have used up all the dough. After simmering for approximately one hour, add chopped chicken and simmer for 15-20 minutes. Check for seasoning and adjust with salt and pepper to your preference. Serve and enjoy!
