Chicken and Dumplings

One of my favorite comfort foods is Chicken and Dumplings. It’s perfect to have on a snowy night, and living in the Philadelphia area we have had a lot of those this winter.
This recipe is actually made with turkey, my Thanksgiving turkey to be exact. Now the same concept can be done with a whole chicken or with just plain chicken breast, but stick with the same directions just different meat.

I left of of the meat on the turkey carcass and placed it in the freezer, I knew I wanted to do something with it at another time, if nothing else just make homemade broth. Tip – when you have a whole turkey or chicken carcass, don’t throw it out, make broth. SO EASY!

Anyway…back to the Chicken (turkey) and Dumplings. After thawing out the carcass, I placed the whole thing in a large pot with all the fixings to make broth – broth recipe. You can also use all the meat that comes off the bone, if you feel you will not have enough meat just throw in a chicken breast into the pot and let it cook with the rest.


It’s kind of a process, but oh so worth it. I would normally make this on a Sunday when I have more time to spend in the kitchen. It make a big enough batch that you will enough leftover for another full meal – BONUS!
