Chicken And Dumplings Recipe

Serves: 6

Ingredients

  • 1 small chicken (1-1/2 lbs)
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 stalk celery

  • 1/4 cup onion

Dumplings

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp shortening
  • 1/2 cup skim milk

Preparation

  1. Disjoint chicken and remove skin. Place in large pan.
  2. Add water, salt, celery and onion. Simmer 1 to 2 hours, until meat is tender.
  3. Make rolled dumplings while chicken stock is simmering: Combine flour, baking powder and salt. Cut in shortening. Add milk to make a stiff dough. Roll dough out to about 1/8-inch thickness and cut into 1-inch strips, squares or diamonds.
  4. Remove chicken from bone, and return chicken to chicken stock.
  5. Bring chicken and stock to a boil.
  6. Add rolled dumplings. Cover and boil gently 8 to 10 minutes.

Chicken Pot Pie

To make a chicken pot pie, put the mixture in a deep dish, cover with a rolled pastry dough to fit, and make several slashes in the top. The top crust would add calories to the total. You may add peas, carrots and/or mushrooms if you like. Those ingredients are not in the original recipe.
