  • 750ml chicken stock
  • 1 teaspoon chicken seasoning

  1. Place bacon in a large, deep frying pan. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside; reserve bacon drippings in frying pan.
  2. Add potatoes, onion and chicken to bacon drippings and cook for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Pour in chicken stock; season with chicken seasoning, salt and pepper. Stir in sweetcorn and simmer all together for 15 minutes.
  3. Pour in single cream and bring to the boil; add crumbled bacon. In a medium bowl, combine scone mix with milk and mix well (dough should be thick). Drop tablespoon sizes of dough into boiling mixture; reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes uncovered, then another 10 minutes covered. (Note: Do not stir while simmering or dumplings will break apart). Serve hot.
