Chicken Stew With Cornmeal Dumplings
For stew: 4 chicken breasts (about 2-1/2 pounds), skinned and all visible fat removed 4-1/2 cups water 1 bay leaf 1 teaspoon dried basil, crumbled 1 teaspoon dried oregano, crumbled 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon ground sage 1/4 teaspoon pepper 1 medium zucchini, halved lengthwise and sliced 1 medium crookneck squash, halved lengthwise and sliced 1 cup fat-free milk 1/2 cup all-purpose flour For cornmeal dumplings: 1/2 cup all-purpose flour 1/3 cup cornmeal 1/4 cup snipped fresh parsley 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/8 teaspoon white pepper Egg substitute equivalent to 1 egg, or 1 egg 1/4 cup fat-free milk 1 tablespoon acceptable vegetable oil
(Note: The book used corn oil for the analysis. It says "acceptable oils" are those with no more than 2 grams of saturated fat per tablespoon such as corn, canola, olive, safflower, sunflower and soybean.)
In a Dutch oven, combine first 8 ingredients for stew. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 45 minutes, or until chicken is tender and no longer pink in the center.
Meanwhile, for dumplings, combine flour, cornmeal, parsley, baking powder, salt and white pepper in a small bowl.
Whisk together remaining dumpling ingredients. Add to flour mixture, whisking together just until moistened. Set aside.
Add zucchini and crookneck squash to stew mixture.
Remove bay leaf from stew and discard. Remove cooked chicken from stew. When chicken is cool enough to handle, remove meat from bones; cut chicken into bite-size pieces (you should have 2-1/2 to 3 cups). Set aside.
In a jar with a tight-fitting lid, combine milk and flour. Cover and shake well. Add to stew mixture. Cook over medium to medium-high heat until thickened and bubbly, about 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Stir in chicken.
Using a spoon, drop dumpling batter in 6 mounds on simmering stew. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 10 to 12 minutes, or until a cake tester or toothpick inserted in one of the dumplings comes out clean. (Don't peek at dumplings while they cook.) Ladle into bowls. Serves 6.
