Yosmite Chicken Stew and Dumplings

Skinless chicken is the basis of this delicious stew with cornmeal dumplings made with low-fat milk.

For the stew:

  • 1 lb skinless, boneless chicken meat, cut into 1-inch cubes

  • 1/2 C onion, coarsely chopped
  • 1 medium carrot, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 stalk celery, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • to taste black pepper
  • 1 pinch ground cloves
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 3 C water
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 package (10 oz) frozen peas

For the cornmeal dumplings:

  • 1 C yellow cornmeal
  • 3/4 C sifted all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 C low-fat (1%) milk
  • 1 Tbsp vegetable oil

For the stew:

1. Place chicken, onion, carrot, celery, salt, pepper, cloves, bay leaf, and water in a large saucepan. Heat to boiling; cover and reduce heat to simmer. Cook about 1/2 hour or until chicken is tender.
2. Remove chicken and vegetables from broth. Strain broth.
3. Skim fat from broth; measure and, if necessary, add water to make 3 cups liquid.


4. Mix cornstarch with 1 cup cooled broth by shaking vigorously in a jar with a tight-fitting lid.
5. Pour into saucepan with remaining broth; cook, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a boil and is thickened.
6. Add basil, peas, and reserved vegetables to sauce; stir to combine.
7. Add chicken and heat slowly to boiling while preparing cornmeal dumplings.

For the dumplings:

1. Sift together cornmeal, flour, baking powder, and salt into a large mixing bowl.
2. Mix together milk and oil. Add milk mixture all at once to dry ingredients; stir just enough to moisten flour and evenly distribute liquid. Dough will be soft.
3. Drop by full tablespoons on top of braised meat or stew. Cover tightly; heat to boiling. Reduce heat (do not lift cover) to simmering and steam about 20 minutes.
