Old-Fashioned Chicken and Dumplings

Old-Fashioned Chicken and Dumplings

Ingredients:

2.5 – 3lbs of chicken
2 celery stalks
2 medium carrots
8 cups water
2.5 tsp salt
.5 tsp black pepper
2 cups flour
.5 tsp baking soda
3 tablespoons vegetable shortening
3/4 cup buttermilk

Directions:

  1. Place chicken, celery, and carrots in a Dutch oven; add water and 2 teaspoons of the salt.  Bring to boil over high; cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until tender, about 1 hour.  Remove chicken from broth, and let stand until cool enough to handle, about 15 minutes.  Remove and discard skin and bone from chicken, and cut meat into bite-size pieces.  Bring broth to boil over high; stir in pepper.
  2. Meanwhile, combine flour, baking soda, and remaining .5 tsp of salt in a large bowl; cut in shortening with a pastry blender (or use your fingers) until mixture resembles coarse meal.  Add buttermilk, stirring with fork until dry ingredients are moistened.  Turn dough out onto a well-floured surface, and knead lightly 4-5 times.
  3. Pat dough to .5″ thickness.  Pinch off dough in 1.5″ pieces, and drop into boiling broth. Reduce heat to medium-low, and cook, stirring occasionally, until desired consistency is reached, about 8-10 minutes.  Stir in chicken.  Garnish servings with green onions.

Quick Chicken and Barley Stew Recipe

Quick Chicken and Barley Stew Recipe

Ingredients

3 bacon slices
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup chopped yellow onion (about 1 medium onion)
1 cup 1/4-inch-thick diagonally cut carrots (about 2 medium carrots)
1 cup 1/4-inch-thick diagonally cut celery (about 3 stalks)
1 tablespoon garlic cloves, minced (about 3 garlic cloves)
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
4 (6-oz.) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1 cup uncooked quick-cooking barley
1 (8-oz.) package baby spinach
2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

Directions

Step 1
Cook bacon in a large Dutch oven over medium until crisp, about 6 minutes, turning once. Transfer bacon to a plate lined with paper towels, reserving drippings in Dutch oven. Crumble bacon, and set aside.

Step 2
Add olive oil to drippings in Dutch oven; increase heat to medium-high. Add yellow onion, carrots, and celery; cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in garlic, kosher salt, and pepper, and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.

Step 3
Add chicken and broth to Dutch oven. Cook on medium-high until broth begins to boil, about 2 to 3 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low. Stir in barley, and cook until chicken is cooked through and a thermometer inserted in the thickest portion reads 165°F, about 8 to 10 minutes more. Remove chicken, shred into large pieces, and return to Dutch oven. Add spinach, and stir until wilted, about 1 minute. Stir in parsley; top each serving with crumbled bacon.

Bacon-Tomato Linguine

Bacon-Tomato Linguine

Ingredients

  • Kosher salt
  • 12 ounces fresh linguine
  • 6 slices bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 3 cups cherry or grape tomatoes
  • 1 shallot, thinly sliced
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan or pecorino romano cheese, plus more for topping
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 1 cup fresh basil, torn

Directions

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook as the label directs. Reserve 1 1/4 cups cooking water, then drain the pasta; set aside.

Meanwhile, cook the bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until crisp, about 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes and shallot and cook until the tomatoes are starting to burst, about 5 minutes. Pour off all but 2 tablespoons of the drippings from the skillet.

Whisk the eggs, cheese, lemon zest and 1 teaspoon pepper in a medium bowl. Slowly whisk in 1 cup of the reserved cooking water; set aside.

Reduce the heat under the skillet to medium low. Add the pasta and toss well. Slowly pour in the egg mixture, tossing, to make a creamy sauce, about 1 minute. Season with salt and add the remaining 1/4 cup cooking water as needed to loosen. Stir in the basil. Top each serving with more cheese and season with pepper.
