With the Army Corps of Engineers taking the Flood Fight 2011 – Operation Watershed down river we will take a culinary tour of the affected areas:
Monday – Memphis District Munchies – Elvis Meatloaf
Tuesday – Vicksburg District Vittles – Mississippi River Chicken & Dumplings
Wednesday – New Orleans District Nosh
Thursday – BBQ Byway
Fishy Friday River Style
The original recipe from RecipeArchive.net calls for boiling a whole chicken, picking off the meat and building the soup with Cream of Chicken soup. Here I have used leftover white meat from a previous post (2 May 2011 Dinner News – Abbottabad, Pakistan) and created a simple milk gravy in place of the canned soup.
If you have 6 people to serve this is a great single meal. If not, I have included my method for individually freezing dumplings and storing the soup in separate containers for later use.
