Well… it’s January and I haven’t been sick at all until today. But … it finally caught me. I woke up with a sore throat and sinus congestion. Of course I have done all the usuals for someone like myself.

  • Silvercillin (available in my supplement Link)
  • Elderberry cough syrup
  • Immuneberry syrup (available in my supplement Link)
  • Lots of water
  • Etc…

But … we were hungry at dinner time and since we were a little low on supplies I dug through the freezer, found a Cornish hen and decided on chicken and dumplings. Since we don’t use regular flour it’s been a very long time since I have made chicken and dumplings. The noodles broke apart a bit but overall they were really good.

Ingredients

One Cornish hen

  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 beef Bouillon cube
  • 1/2 small onion chopped

Place hen and all above ingredients in a large pot of water and cook on high until it comes to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer at a low boil until the meat comes loose from the bone. Remove chicken from water and debone. Chop chicken meat into bite size pieces and set aside.

Dumplings

  • 1 1/2 cup shredded part skim mozzarella cheese
  • 2 ounces cream cheese, cube
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour or oat fiber or 1/4 c. more almond flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda*

Mix the cheese, cream cheese and baking soda together and melt in microwave about 90 seconds. Stir well and then add one egg slightly whipped.

Add almond flour and mix well. Place dough on a piece of parchment paper and place another on top. Using your hands and a rolling pin flatten dough to about 1/4 inch thick. Cut with a pizza cutter into small squares or rectangles.

Drop into boiling water one by one. Do this quickly, they don’t take long too long to cook. They tend to come apart if cooked too long.

Add the chicken back to water and serve.

Salt and pepper to taste.

It’s pretty amazing. Feel free to use your own mix of seasonings.
