Ingredients

How to make it

  • I don't have an exact recipe.
  • Use about 6-7 chicken parts depending on what you like. I use
  • breasts and hips. My mother-in-law used a whole chicken cut up.
  • Over medium heat, melt a stick of butter in a heavy pot like a Dutch
  • oven.
  • Add a chopped onion and 1-1/2 Tbsp. paprika and cook until onion is soft.
  • Salt and pepper to taste.
  • Brown all the chicken, then add a 48 oz can of chicken broth.
  • Add more broth if you need to, to cover the chicken.
  • Simmer for about an hour or until chicken is cooked completely. Remove chicken with a slotted spoon.
  • In a small bowl, mix 1 cup of sour cream with 2 Tbsp. flour with a whisk.
  • Mix in a small amount of the broth. (About a ladle-ful.)
  • Return to pot and simmer until thickened.
  • If it isn't thick enough, add more sour cream and flour.
  • Do not let this boil as it might curdle. When it is to your liking, add the chicken and dumplings.
  • You can make this the day before and just heat it up the following day.
  • The dumplings:
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tsp salt.
  • Beat with a mixer.
  • Add 4 cups of flour with 1-1/2 tsp. baking soda gradually and beat until smooth.
  • It will be very sticky.
  • Add the last cup of flour gradually and stop when the batter is thick and sticky but not firm.
  • You should be able to pour it onto a plate.
  • Have a large pot of water boiling.
  • Hold the plate with about half the batter on it, and using a soup spoon, cut small amounts of batter (about 1 tsp.) off the edge of the plate into the water.
  • The dumplings will get very puffy in the water, but will shrink a bit when they cool.
  • When the water comes back to boil, cook, stirring gently for about 5 minutes.
  • Drain.
  • Repeat with the rest of the batter.

    I made this for dinner Friday night . Everyone loved it! I put it over noodles and did not make the dumplings(only because we just ate TG dinner the night before)Next time I will make it with the dumplings. I just wanted you to know how good it turned out!

    Yes! It's gotta have the dumplings! I made this recently and it's now one of my favorites. Fortunately, my wife can have sour cream and yogurt which I mixed in equal proportions to lighten it up a bit. This is the real deal!
