Chicken N DumplingsFrom cameo55 8 years ago
- 1 stewing chicken (4-6 lbs) shopping list
- 2 stalks of celery (retain a few of the leafy tops) shopping list
- 1 large yellow onion (quartered) shopping list
- 2 carrots shopping list
- salt and pepper shopping list
- DUMPLINGS shopping list
- 2 c. flour shopping list
- 2 eggs shopping list
- 1 tsp. of salt shopping list
- 2-3 T. milk (or until dough forms a ball) shopping list
How to make it
- In a large stockpot, add and cook chicken, celery, onion, and carrots in enough water to cover for about 3 hours or until tender.
- Remove chicken and vegetables from broth. Let chicken cool to touch.
- Strain broth to remove small bones and foam. (I use a cheesecloth lining a colander for this.)
- Return broth to cooking pot, debone chicken and return to pot also.
- Bring chicken broth to a hard boil for adding dumplings. Drop dumplings in a few at a time so they don't stick together and cook for approx. 15 minutes longer.
- DUMPLINGS (Noodle type dumplings):
- Make a well in middle of flour and stir in 2 eggs slightly in well before adding enough milk to make a thick dough.
- Turn out on heavily floured surface and knead slightly.
- Divide dough into 3 to 4 sections and roll out section's as thinly as possible making sure enough flour is on the kneading surface to keep them from sticking.
- Dry dough for 30 minutes or so before cutting.
- Cut dough into 1 inch square dumplings.
- FASTER METHOD:
- Mix all dumpling ingredients in food processor using dough blade and pulse cycle until dough forms a ball.
- Knead, roll, and cut, as previously directed.
- EVEN FASTER METHOD (thicker, bread type dumplings):
- Buy 3-4 cans of your basic buttermilk biscuit(s). Take your kitchen shears and cut each biscuit into fourths, add a few pieces at a time to the chicken broth and cook for about 15 minutes.
- *NOTE: You can add 1 to 2 can's of low sodium chicken broth for enhanced chicken flavor. It does add a kick to your final dish.
