Pauline Le Student Involvement 10 Chicken and Dumplings Yield: 4 to 6 servings Prep time: 30 min Cook time: 50 min Total: 1 hr 20 min Ingredients: Chicken: 1 (2 1/2‐pound) chicken, cut into 8 pieces 3 ribs celery, chopped 1 large onion, chopped 2 bay leaves 2 chicken bouillon cubes 1 teaspoon House Seasoning, recipe follows 1 (10 3/4‐ounce) can condensed cream of celery or cream of chicken soup Dumplings: 2 cups all‐purpose flour 1 teaspoon salt Ice water Directions To start the chicken: Place the chicken, celery, onion, bay leaves, bouillon, and House Seasoning in a large pot.

Remove the chicken from the pot and, when it is cool enough to handle, remove the skin and separate the meat from the bones. Return the chicken meat to the pot. Keep warm over low heat. (continued on next page) 11 To prepare the dumplings: Mix the flour with the salt and mound together in a mixing bowl. Beginning at the center of the mound, drizzle a small amount of ice water over the flour. Using your fingers, and moving from the center to the sides of the bowl, gradually incorporate about 3/4 cup of ice water. Knead the dough and form it into ball. Dust a good amount of flour onto a clean work surface. Roll out the dough (it will be firm), working from center to 1/8‐inch thick. Let the dough relax for several minutes. Add the cream of celery soup to the pot with the chicken and simmer gently over medium‐low heat. Cut the dough into 1‐inch pieces. Pull a piece in half and drop the halves into the simmering soup. Repeat. Do not stir the chicken once the dumplings have been added. Gently move the pot in a circular motion so the dumplings become submerged and cook evenly. Cook until the dumplings float and are no longer doughy, 3 to 4 minutes. To serve, ladle chicken, gravy, and dumplings into warm bowls. Cook's Note: If the chicken stew is too thin it can be thickened before the dumplings are added. To thicken, simply mix together 2 tablespoons cornstarch and 1/4 cup of water then whisk this mixture into the stew. House Seasoning: 1 cup salt 1/4 cup black pepper 1/4 cup garlic powder Mix ingredients together and store in an airtight container for up to 6 months.

Cheryl Vargas Associated Students, SJSU 16 Chicken Toscana Soup Believe it or not, this soup is very rich and flavorful, but the recipe is pretty good on the fat content......using fat free chicken broth and fat free half and half. The only fat is in the butter, parmesan cheese and chicken breast. I make a double recipe and it produces 9‐10 servings, so the recipe below should yield 4‐5 servings. Ingredients: 1 small finely diced onion 1 boneless skinless chicken breast cut into small pieces 1 tsp minced garlic 2 tbsp olive oil 1/2 stick butter 1 tbsp flour 2 cans fat free chicken broth 1 tbsp granulated chicken bouillon or chicken soup consommé 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes fresh ground pepper to taste ground sea salt to taste 1‐2 cups store bought gnocchi (cut in half) 2 cups fat free half and half 2 cups fresh spinach cut into thin strips 5 or 6 leaves of fresh basil (finely chopped) 1 cup fresh grated parmesan cheese 1 cup fresh diced Roma tomato (liquid interiors removed) In a large stock pot, place the olive oil, onion and chicken. Sauté. Once cooked through, add the garlic and stir through. Add the butter and flour, stirring until combined and lightly brown. Stir in the chicken broth and bouillon/consommé, taking care to scrape the browned bottom of the pan to let in the flavor. Add the gnocchi and parsley, and let simmer for a few minutes to cook the gnocchi through. Add the half and half, spinach and fresh basil. Add about 1 cup of fresh grated parmesan cheese at the very end before serving. Garnish with diced tomato Enjoy!

Christy Riggins Associated Students, SJSU 20 Cream of Chicken with Wild Rice Soup Ingredients: 2 cups wild rice (or brown rice) 1 whole chicken (3 pounds), cut into pieces (or 2‐3 breasts) 7 cups of water 1 cup chopped celery 1 medium or large onion chopped 1 tablespoon olive oil 1‐2 cups fresh mushrooms, sliced (button or mixed) 2 tablespoons chicken bouillon or consommé 1 teaspoon ground white pepper 1 teaspoon salt 1/2 to 1 stick butter 2‐3 tablespoons cornstarch 4 cups fat free half and half Cook the wild rice according to the package directions, but remove from heat about 15 minutes before it's done. Drain the excess liquid, and set aside. In a stock pot over high heat, combine the whole chicken and the water. Bring to a boil, and then reduce heat to low. Simmer for 40 minutes, or until chicken is cooked and tender. Remove chicken from the pot, and allow it to cool. Strain the broth from the pot, and reserve for later. When chicken is cool, remove the meat from the bones, cut into bite size pieces, and reserve. Discard the fat and the bones. In the same stock pot over medium heat, sauté the celery and onion in the oil for 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms, and cover. Cook for 5‐10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until everything is tender. Return the broth to the stock pot, and add the partially cooked wild rice. Stir in the bouillon, white pepper and salt; simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the cornstarch until smooth. Whisk in the half and half, and continue cooking until mixture is bubbly and thick. Add some of the broth mixture to the half and half mixture, continuing to stir, then stir all of the half and half mixture into the broth mixture. Mix in the reserved chicken meat. (continued on next page) 21 Alternate: When preparing this recipe, I sped up the recipe by cooking the rice until done in 5 cups of fat free chicken broth. When the rice was finished (it was a little brothy at this point), I added another 2 cups of chicken broth. I used 2 large chicken breasts and cut them into small pieces, then sautéed with the olive oil, celery, onion and mushrooms. I added the sauté mixture to the rice and broth mixture, continuing to simmer or lightly boil (medium heat). I then added the 4 cups of fat free half and half, the salt and pepper, and then the bouillon. I allowed the soup to heat through and to come to a very light boil. I then added a 1/3 cup cornstarch slurry to thicken, along with 2 tablespoons of butter. I also added a half bag of frozen petite sweet peas, as well as a small amount (1/4 cup) of chopped cooked carrots....for color. I like this recipe because it can be made relatively quickly and relatively low in fat (the only fat in my alternate recipe is from the chicken meat, butter and olive oil (but the last two are in low quantities).

Anthony Bettencourt Federal Work‐Study Coordinator Financial Aid and Scholarship Office 27 Korean Braised Short Ribs (Galbi­ Jim) These Korean braised short ribs are slow simmered over low heat to a tender and sweet finish. It's hard to have leftovers with Galbi Jim because it's such a crowd‐pleaser, whether it's served at a fancy gathering or just as a comforting homestyle meal. To stretch the recipe, you can cut up pieces of brisket or other roasting beef cuts to stew size and cook with the short ribs. But you should always try to make it with bone‐in ribs, because like Italian osso bucco or Irish stew, Galbi Jim relies on the stewed bone marrow for its rich flavor. Prep Time: 20 minutes Cook Time: 2 hours Ingredients: 5 Tbsp sugar 6 Tbsp soy sauce 2 Tbsp Japanese rice wine (mirin) OR 1 Tbsp honey 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped 1/2 onion, grated 3 scallions, finely chopped 1 Tbsp sesame seeds, crushed or whole 1 Tbsp sesame oil 1/2 Asian pear, peeled and finely chopped 3 lbs English‐cut short ribs (sometimes called thick‐cut), rinsed in cold water 2 small potatoes, cut up into large chunks 2 medium carrots, cut into 2‐inch lengths or ½ cup baby carrots Preparation: 1. Score the ribs so that they absorb more of the braising liquid. 2. Mix all the marinade ingredients (spices and liquids) together. 3. In a large pot over high heat, put in the ribs and pour the braising liquid over them. Mix well, making sure all the ribs are covered. The liquid should come to about half the 1/3 to ½ the level of the ribs in the pot. 4. Cover pot with a tight‐fitting lid. 5. When it begins to boil, turn to a low simmer. (continued on next page) 28 6. Cook for at least 1 hour (90 minutes – 2 hours is better), adding in potatoes and carrots 30 minutes before end of cooking time.* (Serves 4) * If you are adding in brisket or stew meat for more quantity, then it's best to braise for at least 2 hours. The goal is for meltingly tender meat that is falling off the bone. Hyon Chu Yi‐Baker, M.S.
