Chicken and Dumplings
In this dish the dumplings are steamed floating on top of the stew, but you can instead drop thinly rolled squares of dumpling dough into boiling water to cook them first and then add them to the finished stew. A roasted chicken adds depth of flavor and also makes this recipe easier than using a raw chicken, which would need to be boiled first.
