Tips

Expert Tips

  • Traditional chicken and dumplings consists of heavy dumplings cooked over hearty chicken stew. This updated version includes low-fat, lemon-thyme dumplings cooked over a light chicken, potato and carrot mixture.
  • Thyme is a savory, zesty herb with small leaves; it is used fresh or dried. The sprigs, with their tiny leaves on woody branches, make a pretty garnish.
