    This is a very warming and satisfying chicken stew, the ultimate comfort food in my opinion! Perfect in winter.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 5 

    • 1 (1.5 kg) whole chicken
    • 1 onion, quartered
    • 2 slices lemon
    • salt and pepper to taste
    • 3 cups (750ml) water
    • 1 bay leaf
    • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

    1. In a heavy pot with a lid place the chicken, onion, lemon, salt, pepper, water, bay leaf and thyme. Simmer all over low heat until tender, about 1 hour.
    2. Let chicken cool slightly in pot, then remove and take the meat off of the bones. Discard the bones and skin and skim excess fat off the stock if desired. Discard the onion, lemon and bay leaf. If desired, wash out pot well. Return stock and chicken pieces to the pot. Simmer over low heat while making the dumplings.
    3. To Make Dumplings: In a medium mixing bowl, cut margarine into the flour and salt. Stir in 1/4 cup (65ml) water (more if needed) to form a soft dough. Roll out dough on a floured surface, with a rolling pin, until very thin. Cut into 3cm wide strips using a pizza cutter or knife. Tear off 3cm long pieces from these strips and drop into simmering stock and chicken meat. Simmer for 10 minutes with the lid off, then 10 minutes more with the lid on. Serve immediately.
