If you want to talk about an incredible recipe, let’s talk about these Chicken and Dumplings, because, wow.  These are Drop Biscuit style dumplings with fresh chopped vegetables and breast meat from a roasted chicken.  The dumplings are seasoned with herbs and the roasted chicken was marinated in a 24 hour brine, so this recipe is incredible.

Growing up, I didn’t much like dumplings; at least the way my Mom made’em.  I’d dare say they even made me feel sick.  So when I started out recreating this recipe I had one simple goal in mind; make something I LOVE!  So I roasted the best chicken I could make, I made the best vegetable soup I could come up with and I added the best drop biscuit recipe I had and Viola, this Chicken and Dumplings recipe was born.

Poor Man's Gourmet Kitchen

I'm just a regular guy in search of his bliss and I find that bliss in food and all of its many cultural differences. A very seasoned and experience chef taught me how to use my pallet to best serve and prepare a dish with all of its natural flavors from other foods before ever introducing “forced flavoring”, such as salt. My goal isn’t just to teach how to incorporate these products into simple gourmet dishes but to show, how easy, it can be done from anyone's Kitchen with cheaper, convenient substitutions that will not only blow your mind, but insure that most no one will be able to ever tell the difference!
