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?
No problem. I found the below recipe some time ago on a message board.
Blue Boar’s chicken and dumplings
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
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.
