This recipe for chicken and dumplings was shared by Liz.

Ingredients:

  • 1 chicken, about 3 pounds
  • 2 Quarts water
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Pepper
  • 2 Cup All-purpose flour
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Baking soda
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 3 Tablespoon Shortening
  • 3/4 Cup Buttermilk

Preparation:

Place chicken in a Dutch oven; add water and 1 teaspoon salt. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 1 hour or until tender. Remove chicken and let cool slightly. Bone chicken and cut chicken into bite-size pieces; set aside. Bring broth to a boil; add pepper. Combine flour, soda, and 1/2 teaspoon salt; cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add buttermilk, stirring with a fork until dry ingredients are moistened. Turn dough out onto a well-floured surface, and knead lightly 4 or 5 times.
For drop dumplings, pat dough to 1/4" thickness. Pinch off dough in 1 to 2-inch pieces; drop into boiling broth. Reduce heat to medium-low, and cook 8 to 10 minutes or to desired consistency, stirring occasionally. Stir in chicken. To make rolled dumplings: Roll dough about 1/4-inch thick. Cut dough into 4- x 1/2-inch dumplings. Drop dumplings, one piece at a time, into boiling broth, carefully stirring after each addition.
Serves 4 to 6.

Chicken and Dumplings like Grandmother made!, Member oannhughes

I have tried this recipe twice, once with chicken thighs and once with chicken breasts and the breasts were better. I cooked the chicken in a crock pot for about 6 hours with dried minced onion and salt and pepper. Also, I added about 2 Tbsp. of butter when finished. I would recommend this recipe to anyone who enjoys good, old-fashioned chicken and dumplings!!
