Chicken and Dumplings Recipe

By

A basic recipe for chicken and dumplings.

Ingredients:

  • 1 stewing chicken
  • 1 1/2 to 2 tsp salt
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 cup milk

Preparation:

Cut up chicken; place in deep pot, barely cover with water, add salt and simmer until meat is tender. Debone chicken and set aside; reserve the broth. Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt; cut in shortening. Add milk to make a stiff dough. Roll out to 1/4-inch thickness on floured board. Cut into 1-inch squares, and sprinkle with flour. Drop into briskly boiling chicken stock. Cover tightly and simmer gently for about 40 minutes. Add meat and serve.
