Ingredients

How to make it

  • Cut the chicken up into quarters and place in a pot and cover with water. Simmer the chicken
  • until tender. When the chicken is tender, add the salt and black pepper to taste. You can leave
  • the bones in or take the meat off the bone; I like to remove them myself.
  • ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
  • To make the dumplings:
  • Sift together the flour, baking powder, and the salt. Cut in the lard or shortening and mix in the
  • egg and milk. Drop the dumplings by spoonfuls into the pot of chicken and broth and cook for
  • 15 minutes or until the dumplings are done.

    OK, Lana, you've got me on this one. It sounds better than the "fake" frozen dumolin's that I use. I gave it a 5 just because I can taste how good it is by the sound of it. I look forward to tryin' it. Thanks for sharin' - Susana

    Great recipe! Love chicken and dumplins'! Has to be the most wonderful comfort food. My grandmother made 'em, my mother made 'em, and I learned to make 'em standin' on a stool! :)

    Thanks so much for this wonderful "old timey" recipe. Chicken n Dumplings are one of my favorite cool-weather dishes. Although I use my mom's recipe, I definitely will try yours out, too!
