Foster Farms has a new definition of comfort food, and asked me to provide my own. For me, comfort food is all about warm, hearty, fresh foods that my whole family will enjoy. Fall is the perfect time to start making delicious comfort foods, and one of my favorite recipes are these chicken pot pie dumplings.
As a child I thought of comfort food as something bright orange that came out of a box, or pasta from a can. Luckily my tastes have changed, and I realize that my NEW comfort food definitely doesn’t come from a box or a can. Foster Farms is defining the New Comfort Food as healthy, fresh, local and easy to prepare. As a mom, I appreciate these qualities and want my kids to think of comfort food as something that came out of my kitchen. I want them to remember coming home from a long day at school and they walk in to the house to smells of a delicious meal with fresh ingredients baking in the oven.
This tasty fall dish comes together quickly, is packed with flavor and will soon become a new comfort food for your family too!
Chicken Pot Pie Dumplings
What you’ll need:
- Foster Farms Simply Raised Chicken
- onions, carrots, celery, chopped
- frozen peas
- chicken base
- chicken base
- lemon juice
- baking powder
- *not pictured: butter
I like using Foster Farms Simply Raised Chicken because it has no antibiotics, it’s fresh, it’s local (grown in the Pacific Northwest) and it tastes great!
The first thing you do is boil the chicken.
While the chicken is boiling, begin preparing the filling in a separate skillet (that you can use in the oven). Start by melting the butter and sautéing the vegetables and parsley.
Remove from skillet and use the same skillet to prepare sauce.
Begin to make your sauce by melting remaining butter and adding flour to make a roux. Add reserved chicken broth from boiled chicken.
Cube your cooked Foster Farms Simply Raised Chicken into bite-sized pieces.
Add cubed chicken and vegetables to sauce along with frozen peas.
Stir to combine all that tasty goodness. (This is ready to eat as is, dumplings or not, it’s that good!)
Mix the dumpling ingredients and drop heaping tablespoonfuls onto the filling. Place in preheated 350 degree oven and bake 20-25 minutes or until dumplings are light golden brown.
ENJOY every delicious bite! Then go back for seconds!
