On rainy days, there is nothing better than sitting down on a couch and eating your favourite food. Luckily, these days making food at home has become extremely simple. If you are looking to warm your body as well as your soul, you should consider preparing a dish that is not only spicy but also extremely delicious. Chicken and dumplings is commonly prepared dish across the world and it can warm your chilly bones no matter how cold the weather is.
Cornstarch - 2 tablespoons
Whole milk - ¼ cup
Consider putting dumplings in a pot and cook them over steady heat until the dumplings are cooked all the way through.
As the dumplings get cooked, the starch will start to come out and it will automatically thicken the soup.
If you want the soup to be thicker then consider adding a bit more flour to meet your needs.
Do not add any thickening ingredients before this step as that can make the soup too thick.
Now get some cornstarch and milk as you stir using a wooden spoon.
It is recommended to make sure these ingredients are properly mixed to avoid the formation of lumps.
By doing so, you will ensure the slurry will do its job as the dumplings and chicken are easy to eat.
Add milk and starch mixture into the chicken and dumplings and mix for a short while.
Again, mix thoroughly to make sure there are no lumps.
Cook the dumplings and chicken until the starch is at its full thickening power.
Continue to stir the mixture to make sure the chicken and dumplings do not get burnt on the bottom.
When you see all the ingredients are thoroughly mixed and there are no lumps, consider removing the pot from the heat.
Allow the food to cool down to make your chicken and dumplings thicker.
