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.
  • 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.

    Hi Tina, this recipe also freezes well in small quart containers for those times when you don't feel like cooking. I will sometimes add a can or two of the low sodium chicken broth to these when reheating and throw in an extra can or two of the buttermilk biscuits, that way I have enough for everyone.
