Simple Chicken N DumplingsFrom mommyluvs2cook 7 years ago
- 1 whole cut up chicken, skin removed and rinsed shopping list
- 5 tubes regular sized biscuits shopping list
- 1 tsp. celery salt shopping list
- 1/2 tsp. dried minced onion shopping list
- 1/4 tsp. cayenne (optional) shopping list
- Dash creole shopping list
- S & P to taste (I use about 1 tsp. salt and 1/2 tsp. pepper) shopping list
- Read *Note* for extras :) shopping list
How to make it
- place chicken in 8 quart stock or soup pot.
- Fill pot about half way with water and boil about 20 minutes or until chicken is done. Reserve water and remove chicken. Set aside to cool.
- While chicken is cooking tear biscuits into small pieces to make the dumplings (I usually get about four pieces per biscuit).
- Bring water back up to a boil and drop dumplings one at a time in. When it starts getting kinda full use a ladle to make a well to drop dumplings in so they don't stick to the other biscuits.
- Let dumplings simmer for about 20-25 minutes* (read below).
- Add seasonings and adjust them if needed.
- Shred cooled chicken while dumplings are cooking.
- At the very end add chicken in and serve.
- *cook less for thinner broth and more for thicker. I like mine semi thick so 25 minutes is about what I do*
- *Note*: I sometimes like to add sliced carrots and celery in with the chicken. You may also add peas at the last 5 minutes...
