Hi! I notice that you have some recipes from Blue Boar Cafeteria, but not the one I've
been looking for. Do you have, or can you find, their chicken and dumplings recipe?


Hi Gelisa,

No problem. I found the below recipe some time ago on a message board.


Blue Boar’s chicken and dumplings

Veloute sauce:

1 quart hot water
1 tablespoon chicken base
6 tablespoons margarine
1/2  cup flour
Yellow food coloring, if desired


2/3 cup cold water
1 1/2  cups biscuit mix

To finish:

1 pound cooked chicken
1/2  cup cooked peas and carrots

Sauce: In a large kettle dissolve chicken base in hot water. Make a roux with margarine 
and flour. Add roux to heated stock, stirring constantly. If using food coloring, add 
very little; it only enhances color. Simmer for 10 minutes.

While sauce is simmering, prepare dumplings.

Dumplings: Pour water into large mixing bowl. Add biscuit mix and mix just until water 
is absorbed. Dust a flat surface with a small amount of biscuit mix. Roll dough out to 
1/4 -inch thickness, using a rolling pin that has been dusted with biscuit mix.

Cut into 1-by-2-inch strips. Steam dumplings for about 5 minutes before adding to veloute 
sauce. (I used a vegetable steamer, steaming 5 or 6 dumplings at a time).

When all the dumplings are in, add chicken to sauce. Mix lightly with a fork. Garnish with 
peas and carrots. Serve while hot.  Makes 8 servings.
