INGREDIENTS

  • 2 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 64 oz Whole Chicken
  • 1/3 cup chopped Celery
  • 1/2 cup, chopped Onions
  • 6 cup (8 fl oz) Chicken Broth
  • 1 tsp, crumbled Bay Leaf
  • 1/2 tsp, ground Thyme (Dried)
  • 1 medium Zucchini
  • 1 oz Vital Wheat Gluten
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder (Straight Phosphate, Double Acting)
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/8 tsp Black Pepper
  • 2 tbsp Butter
  • 1 large Egg (Whole)
  • 5 tbsp Heavy Cream
  • 1 1/2 serving Atkins Flour Mix

DIRECTIONS

Use the Atkins recipe to make Atkins Flour Mix for this recipe, you will need 1/2 cup.
 
  1. For the stew: Heat oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Working in two batches, brown chicken on all sides, about 10 minutes per batch. Transfer to a plate.
  2. Reduce heat to medium, add celery and onion; cover, and cook until browned, 4 to 5 minutes. Return chicken to pot. Add broth, bay leaf and thyme; bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
  3. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until cooked through and tender, turning chicken occasionally,1 hour 15 minutes. Transfer chicken to a plate.
  4. When cool enough to handle, remove chicken meat from bones (discard skin and bones), and cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces. (The chicken-and-soup mixture can be prepared ahead of time up to this point and refrigerated in an airtight container.)
  5. Return chicken to Dutch oven, and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium, add zucchini, and cook just until tender but still bright green, about 6 minutes.
  6. For the dumplings: Heat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
  7. In a medium bowl, whisk together the baking mix, wheat gluten, baking powder, salt and pepper. With a pastry cutter, cut the butter into the mixture until no pieces larger than small peas remain.
  8. Whisk egg and cream together in a cup. With a fork, add egg mixture to dry ingredients, and stir until evenly moistened. Drop rounded tablespoons of dough onto prepared baking sheet, forming 6 mounds.
  9. Bake until golden, about 12 minutes. Ladle stew into serving bowls, top each with a dumpling, and serve.

Cooking Tip

When making the broth, add the skin of the onion for extra flavor to the dish.
