Chicken dumplings with linguine
Love to add a pasta dish to my TTI food weeks, and this week is no exception. When it comes to meatballs or meat dumplings, pork and beef are usually the popular meat of choice. So, I thought it would be fun to cook a recipe where chicken is the key meat. This pasta dish with CHICKEN DUMPLINGS is great dish, giving a different angle to pasta and meatballs.
