Comfort food

by Claudia

Chicken and dumplings: my favourite rainy day dish, from my favourite food blogger. This meal is the perfect prelude to a nap. Truthfully I have never made this dish from start to finish. It's adapted from a Cook's Illustrated recipe, which I've always found to be extremely labour intensive. It is, however, my stand-by when I have leftover chicken. Leftover chicken, and a ton of homemade chicken broth.

The recipe doesn't call for carrots or celery, but I always add them anyway. I like them, and they're good for me... or something like that.

Oh bowl of carbs, how I love you. Fun fact: the dumplings are essentially made from biscuit dough. One time we baked up some leftover dumpling batter, and they became delicious, fluffy biscuits! So, each dumpling is a giant biscuit. Maybe I shouldn't have put it that way.

I think Michelle is back on Saturday, and the likelihood of me cooking anything on a Friday night is unlikely. So thanks to Michelle for letting me invade her blog this week!
