Creamy Chicken Goodness

Creamy soup, moist chicken, and chewy soft dumplings.

The original recipe from 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.

Finished Scotch Eggs

Blanket your Easter eggs in the sausage of your choice.

British street food makes for a great mid-week grab and go option that can feature other DIY food projects.  I used my own mild Italian sausage mix and bread crumbs from leftover whole wheat Easter dinner rolls.  If you use a commercial sausage they will have a higher fat content, more shrinkage away from the egg and look like the original recipe at Scotland’s Enchanted Kingdom. To create a scotch egg that is not made of grey mystery meat may go against tradition (Consider the Scotch Egg) but makes for a tastier nosh.
