Homestyle Chicken and Dumplings
Since I started milling my own flour, my kitchen has taken on a whole new life. I'm more apt to create items from scratch rather then using store bought. I love how healthy my food tastes and the best part is I can mill what I want, when I want and I don't have a bunch of flour stored in the pantry. My kitchen is rather small and does not have a lot of storage space anyway.
When I was a kid, I loved my mom's chicken and dumplings. She would make the dumplings with Bisquick and I remember how yummy and fluffy they came out. I'd eat the dumplings over the chicken any day of the week so the more she made, the happier I was.
So, naturally I set out to make dumplings from scratch. I looked a lot of recipes on line and came up with one of my own that combined the best parts of these recipes and added a "Lorifying" touch.
Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Crumble and set aside; reserve bacon drippings in skillet.
|Add garlic, onion and chicken to bacon drippings and cook for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Pour in chicken broth; season with poultry seasoning, salt and pepper. Stir in corn, and simmer all together for 15 minutes.|
Pour in half-and-half (I used fat free half & half) and bring to a boil; add crumbled bacon.
