Citizens, this evocatively-named recipe from Delaware caught my attention and I found it worth sharing!
As noted in this post by writer Patricia Talorico:
I was recently asked to name a few dishes that uniquely represent Delaware.
Given Delaware’s massive poultry industry in Sussex County, which contributes $3.2 billion to the state’s economy, one of the most quintessential regional dishes has to be chicken and slippery dumplings.
This stewy, satisfying comfort food, usually served with a side of succotash or green beans and a roll for sopping up the rich, soupy chicken gravy, has long been the staple of fundraising dinners, from churches to fire departments, from Moose to Mason lodges.
Scope the state and you’ll find family-style restaurants offering steamy plates as a weekly special.
A true Delaware dumpling shouldn’t be confused with Southern-style drop dumplings. Delaware’s “slippery” dumplings are large rectangles, cut from dough rolled as thinly as possible, and have a sleek, noodle-like consistency.
This is the TFD version of a classic and deservedly worthy family recipe!
