Chicken 'n' Dumplins
(here's the recipe, if you can call it that.)
Mix the flour and butter together in the food processor until...
the mix looks like corn meal and sticks together a little when pinched. Later you add water and process until it just pulls together, carefully roll out and cut.
The base of these chicken 'n' dumplins is made with a roux...butter and flour cooked together, turning broth or stock into a beautiful texture.
The dough is rolled out and the dumplins are cut. Placed into a gently simmering mix of chicken, carrots, onions, corn and herbs.
The dumplins cook and puff up. So soft and tender. Perfectly comforting.
