Chicken Stew with Rhodes Dumplings

I am so excited to be a guest blogger for Rhodes Bake-N-Serv!!  If you have been around my blog for any amount of time, you know I love to cook with frozen dough,  From appetizers to main dishes, desserts to breakfast, you can find me heading to the freezer to get Rhodes frozen dough to help out in the kitchen. While I love cooking and baking with freshly made dough, the convenience of  homemade tasting Rhodes Bake-N-Serv just cannot be beat and is a must have at my house.  For this Chicken Stew with Rhodes Dumplings, I used White Dinner Rolls, which just happens to be my go to frozen dough.

Chicken Stew with Dumplings has never been easier to make!  Rhodes Bake-N-Serv White Dinner Rolls make dumplings a breeze to roll, cut and cook up a pot of comfort food at its best.  Okay, I am just a little biased....Chicken and Dumplings is my comfort food.  Having it in a stew with added vegetables, takes it to another level.


To make Chicken Stew with Rhodes Dumplings:



Thawed, yet chilled, 10 Rhodes White Dinner Rolls.  This amount makes an abundance of dumplings.


Flour surface to pat, or roll, each Rhodes White Dinner Roll.


 Pat each roll into a thin rectangle.


 Cut into 4 to 6 strips lengthwise and again into squares.


Flour pieces as you cut them to keep from sticking to each other and also help thicken the broth.


 Add onions, celery, frozen vegetables and chicken to broth and bring to a boil.  I used a mix of tomatoes, okra, carrots, potatoes and green beans which was wonderful!


Drop a few dumplings at a time in boiling water.


 Add dumplings to cover surface.  Sprinkle with dried parsley.


 Stir and add more dumplings, sprinkle with more parsley.


 Cook 20 to 30 minutes until dumplings are done.  Stir gently to prevent sticking.

Reduce to a low boil 10 minutes. Chop cooked chicken (rotisserie or leftover chicken, works great). Sprinkle surface with flour. Pat, or roll, each thawed, yet chilled roll, into a thin rectangle.
