With a centerpiece of rich dumplings made from scratch, this chicken and vegetable classic is the ultimate comfort food.
INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):
- 4 large skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into strips
- 4 cubes chicken bouillon
- 2 stalks celery, chopped
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 1 sprig fresh parsley, chopped
- salt and pepper to taste
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1/2 cup chicken broth
- 1/2 cup cornstarch, to thicken broth
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add chicken, bouillon, celery, parsley and salt and pepper to taste. Cook for 45 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink inside. Reduce heat to low and continue to simmer.
To Make Dumplings: While chicken is cooking, combine the flour, egg, sour cream, and chicken broth in a medium bowl. Mix well and roll dough out on a floured surface. Cut into small squares and drop into boiling chicken broth. In a small bowl, mix together corn starch and enough water to form a thin paste; stir into broth. Continue to simmer for 5 to 10 minutes, or until dumplings are light and puffy.
