Cook's Notes

Use one spoon to scoop the dumpling dough and a second to easily scrape it from the first spoon into the pot.

    1. I never use boneless chicken, you loose 2/3 of the flavor! 2. I added 1 tsp. Aleppo chilie flakes to the saute and 1 sm bay leave with the liquid, reduced by 1/3. 3. I added fresh parsley to the dumplings. Delish!!!

    I was very disappointed with this recipe. I used boneless breast meat instead of thigh . I admit that this would account for some loss of flavor. I was surprised how much flour was called for and the short amount of time to cook after added - a faux (false) roux of sorts I suppose. The result was a gluey substance. I added 1 of 2 T of the vinegar. The tag line said "zesty New Orleans" feel. There really was very little zesty flavor, only a tiny tang. The dumplings were the saving grace.

    Oh, and cooking time, seriously, was more like 4 HOURS! To get all those carrots soft.

    Zesty! Oh, ya! I was nervous using a lager in this stew -and two bottles of it, no less, but I plunked down two Carlsbergs and was much pleased with the results. I think the beer is what lends to the zesty flavour. I added some vegetarian 'chicken' stock for depth, and a little tomato purée, since mine wasn't looking as rich in colour as the picture. I have a feeling I can find a better dumpling recipe, but hey, non of my diners had a complaint. Super.

    Delicious! Ended up substituting one of the beers with beef broth (as that was what was on hand), turned out fantastic! This is going to be flagged as a favorite in my house.
