Haitian Chicken And Dumplings

Every culture has an evolved recipe, and ritual preparation for chicken and dumplings. In Haiti there are many ways to prepare chicken, and each family will have their own preferred recipe that is usually passed down through the Ladies of the clan.

The preparation of  the ingredients was also explained, but the translator was too busy grazing to be of much use.

We watched patiently as this woman sifted through the Haitian rice discarding any grain that was inferior in color or texture. Some of the seasonings had exotic names and uncommon, but agreeable aromas. Here is Madan Antoine’s bouyon blan ak poul pa Madam Antoine . You will need your own translator for this pot. Enjoy!
