How to make it

  • To start the chicken: Place the chicken, celery, onion, bay leaves,
  • bouillon, and House Seasoning in a large pot. Add 4 quarts of water
  • and in water and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Simmer the
  • chicken until it is tender and the thigh juices run clear, about 40
  • minutes. Remove the chicken from the pot and, when it is cool enough
  • to handle, remove the skin and separate the meat from the bones.
  • Return the chicken meat to the pot. Keep warm over low heat.
  • To prepare the dumplings: Mix the flour with the salt and mound
  • together in a mixing bowl. Beginning at the center of the mound,
  • drizzle a small amount of ice water over the flour. Using your
  • fingers, and moving from the center to the sides of the bowl,
  • gradually incorporate about 3/4 cup of ice water. Knead the dough and
  • form it into ball.
  • Dust a good amount of flour onto a clean work surface. Roll out the
  • dough (it will be firm), working from center to 1/8-inch thick. Let
  • the dough relax for several minutes.
  • Add the cream of celery soup to the pot with the chicken and simmer
  • gently over medium-low heat.
  • Cut the dough into 1-inch pieces. Pull a piece in half and drop the
  • halves into the simmering soup. Repeat. Do not stir the chicken once
  • the dumplings have been added. Gently move the pot in a circular
  • motion so the dumplings become submerged and cook evenly. Cook until
  • the dumplings float and are no longer doughy, 3 to 4 minutes.
  • To serve, ladle chicken, gravy, and dumplings into warm bowls.
  • Cook's Note: If the chicken stew is too thin it can be thickened
  • before the dumplings are added. Simply mix together 2 tablespoons
  • cornstarch and 1/4 cup of water then whisk this mixture into the stew.
  • House Seasoning: You do not have to use if you don't want to.
  • 1 cup salt
  • 1/4 cup black pepper
  • 1/4 cup garlic powder
  • Mix ingredients together and store in an airtight container for up to
  • 6 months.
