“My sister brought this recipe home from culinary school. She raved so much about it that I just had to vegetarianize it. Quorn is my favorite fake chicken product, but any brand would do.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Thaw Chik'n. Combine flour with salt and pepper (to taste).
  2. Heat oil/butter over med-high heat until hot, not smoking. Dip Chik'n in flour and shake off excess (since there will be little moisture, it may not stick very well. If you have a lot of extra flour, add a little of it to the pan).
  3. Brown Chik'n on all sides (don't overcook, I only cooked them maybe 2-3 minutes).
  4. Add celery and onion, cook 2 minutes. Add bay leaf, thyme, parsley, and stock. Bring to boil, cover, reduce heat, simmer 15 minutes.
  5. Stir in creamer and continue to simmer for 5 minutes.
  6. Prepare dumplings. Mix ingredients together to form a thick batter. Drop a TBL at a time into the stew. Cover tightly and cook 20 extra minutes.
  7. Remove bay leaf and serve immediately.
