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.

Pretzel Bites Ingredients:
1 Pizza Dough, for a14″ Lg. Pizza
6 cups Water
1/4 cup Baking Soda
1 tbsp Water, mix with egg for wash
2 tbsp Butter, melted
1 tsp Kosher Salt
1 tsp Dried Oregano, ground
Mix Baking soda with the 6 cups of boiling water and soak the dough for only 30 seconds. Bake at 450 degrees f for 12 to 15 minutes.
Mix together all dry ingredients first, then add the yogurt and the milk. Need the dough for 5 to 10 minutes until it’s smooth. Then roll into a ball and place in a bowl with a towel over the top and let the dough rise for at least 2 hours. Once the dough has risen, flatten out the dough to knock out the air and roll into a cylinder shape. Cut into equal portions starting with the center, cutting in half and in half again until all portions are equal. Now roll the dough flat into oblong shapes approximately 1/8 of an inch thick. Heat each one in a pan or on a grill set on Med high for 1 minute then turn, if you want to keep it simple. Otherwise cook only one side and put garlic and Coriander on the other side and place under a broiler for a minute to a minute and half. Remove the Naan from the heat and rub with butter and serve warm.
