This stewed chicken recipe with drop dumplings is a very hearty meal. I really enjoy preparing homemade stews and soups because I can control the ingredients. I always like to know what I'm eating so I like having the luxury of hand picking which ingredients I included in a stew or soup.
When cooking any stew or preparing any recipe for that matter, we always advice cooks to use the best of ingredients.
By best we most often mean, hand picking vegetables and herbs that are locally grown or in season.
For chicken its a good idea to free range chickens because they are not filled with hormones and will taste much better.
As a one pot meal you could easily get away with only serving this chicken and dumplings meal to your family or guest. Trust me they'll leave the table with a full stomach. There is no need for vegetables on the side or bread, this stewed chicken dish will do the job all by itself.
