How to make it
- 1. Cook the bird. I cut it up and put it on a rack in a covered baking pan, add the water, the first lot of “good stuff” and broth, sprinkle on what seems to suit and bake it at 350 deg F for about an hour. You can toss it into a Dutch oven or pot with the water, broth & the “Good Stuff” (it should be covered) and cook away until done.
- 2. When the bird is done let it cool and skin & bone it. I just shred it but you can cut it up if you like.
- 3. Poor the juice from the pan or pot through a sieve and give the veggies to the ducks.
- 4. Put the juice, chicken and the second lot of “More Good Stuff” in the pot and simmer a bit.
- 5. Put the flour, corn meal, baking powder, salt and parsley in a bowl and mix well.
- 6. Add the butter and mix again.
- 7. Add the milk and make your very loose dough.
- 8. Thicken the juice in the pot just a little.
- 9. With the thickened juice just simmering spoon in the dumplings, one spoon at a time.
- 10. Cover tightly and simmer for 15 – 20 minutes,
- This recipe does work better with a few Costa del Sols under your belt but a few glasses of dry white wine are also nice. Bon Appetite
