It’s all about the comfort food right now. It’s snowing in Alabama – that is saying a lot. It hardly ever snows here, so for celebration, I am going to make the best chicken and dumplings EVER! This recipe is tried and true and has never failed to get my family to the dinner table…before I call them to it.
For Meal Made Easy: Chicken and Dumplings, I’ve kept things simple and extra comforting. I chose a couple of favorite sides, buttery cornbread, and a scrumptious dessert to round out the meal.
For the sides: caramelized carrots, to me, are the perfect vegetable to complement this amazing chicken and dumplings recipe, along with a side of mustardy coleslaw with apples.
The skillet cornbread is a little bit sweet and super easy to make.
For dessert, you must have my “deconstructed strawberry shortcake!” I make it using the same dough as I use to make the dumplings. It is so easy, and I can promise you, you have never tasted a better strawberry shortcake! You’ll get a little crunch from the fried dough and a light airiness from the cream, along with the sweet strawberries. Of course, you can use blueberries or blackberries if you like for this dessert.
