Last night I wanted to use uo a chicken I had purchased. I was half following a pressure cooker recipe that came with my PC for a chicken dish, and mostly following the spices and ingredients of a soup (stew?) recipe Kitchenelf had given me. The reason I did not follow KE's recipe exclusively is because it called for dumplings and I did not have a rolling pin yet
I hope to get that rolling pin today.
So last night I just plated some of the chicken, which fell off the bone, and some of the veggies that were in with it. OMG, absolutely loaded with flavor! Not pretty at all, even though I browned the chicken first, but the meat was incredible. Better than any roasted chicken I ever had.
After dinner I took out a pot with a colander inner pot (I guess it's called) and dumped everything through it. So now sitting in my fridge is a pot with stock in the bottom of it and the colander with everything else. I intend to pull apart the chicken meat and make a soup and my rolling pin just arrived as I'm typing this
, so I can make KE's slippery dumplings, which is my whole intent.
So my question is; Since everything is cooled off and needs to be brought to a boil again for the dumplings, should I remove the veggies and add new ones? Will the veggies that were already cooked deteriorate? Maybe leave them in and still add new ones?
