Chicken and dumplings with rotisserie chicken.

Hey there, fellow food enthusiasts! Ready to embark on a journey of flavor and warmth? Let’s dive into the heart of making scrumptious chicken dumplings with the help of our trusty Costco rotisserie chicken.

Step 1: Crafting the Chicken Stock

  • Grab that Costco rotisserie chicken, pull off the juicy meat, and set it aside for later. Toss the bones and skin into a pot.
  • Add in some veggie companions—half a medium onion, a couple of celery stalks, and a hint of sliced carrots.
  • Let this delightful mix slow boil for around 2 hours, infusing your kitchen with savory aromas.

Step 2: Roux Magic

  • In a separate pan, whip up a roux. Heat 3 tablespoons of cooking oil and throw in 1/3 cup each of diced celery and onion.
  • Once the veggies are softened, sprinkle in 2 tablespoons of flour. Mix and lightly brown that flour to create a flavorful base.

Step 3: Dance of the Stock and Roux

  • Strain that heavenly chicken stock into the roux. Gradually blend, adding more stock as you go.
  • Season the magic with 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and a teaspoon of thyme. Let it simmer and taste the bliss. Adjust the seasoning to your liking.

Step 4: Dumpling Delight

  • Time for the dumplings! Combine 3 cups of all-purpose flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and about 1 cup of water. Mix it up, adjusting liquid or flour as needed.
  • Roll out the dough on a floured surface, cut into charming squares, and set them aside.

Step 5: Simmer, Stir, Savor

  • With your pot at a cozy simmer, start adding those delightful dumplings. A few at a time, giving the pot a gentle stir.
  • Cover it up, and let the simmering magic happen. Stir every now and then for the next 30 minutes to 1 hour, until those dumplings are cooked to perfection.

There you have it, a friendly guide to creating a bowl full of comfort and flavor. Share the joy, invite friends over, and savor each delicious spoonful. Happy cooking!
