What we send:
3 carrots (3.5 oz total)
1 onion (6 oz)
2 celery (3 oz total)
2 cloves garlic (0.4 oz total)
12 oz boneless, skinless chicken thighs
fresh thyme sprigs (0.15 oz)
8 oz chicken broth
1 1⁄2 tsp baking powder (0.25 oz)
6.75 oz milk
1 cup frozen peas (5 oz)
What you need:
freshly ground black pepper
coarse salt
olive oil
all­purpose flour
Recipe steps:
1.Prep ingredients
Peel and chop carrot and onion. Cut ends off celery and chop. Peel and finely chop garlic. Cut
any fat off the chicken then cut into 1 inch pieces.
2.Brown chicken
Season chicken pieces with pepper and 1 teaspoon salt. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a pot over
medium high. Add chicken in a single layer and cook until well browned without stirring, about
3 minutes. Stir chicken and cook for 2 minutes. Remove from pot.
3.Cook vegetables
Add onion, carrot, celery, garlic and half the thyme sprigs to pot and season with pepper and 1⁄2
teaspoon salt. Cook until onion is translucent, about 3 minutes.
Return chicken to pot and add chicken broth and 1⁄2 cup water. Bring to a boil then reduce to a
simmer. Simmer partially covered for 20 minutes.
5.Make dumplings
Meanwhile, remove leaves from remaining thyme sprigs and chop. Whisk together 1⁄2 cup flour,
baking powder, and 1⁄2 teaspoon salt. Slowly whisk in 1⁄2 cup milk to make a soft batter. It
should be slightly thicker than pancake batter. Add more milk if necessary.
6.Add dumplings
Stir peas into pot then drop dumpling batter by the spoonful on top. Sprinkle dumplings with
thyme and few grinds of black pepper. Cover and simmer until dumplings are firm, about 10
minutes. Enjoy!
