This is my version of Chicken and Dumplings that I have been making for about 30 years. Today was a cold, wet, and rainy day – perfect!

Chicken and Dumplings
 

Ingredients
  • Chicken
  • Onion
  • Celery
  • 3 Cups Flour
  • 2 TBSP butter
  • 2 TBSP shortening
  • parsley
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions
  1. Large Dice onion and celery, amounts depend on how much you like both of these ingredients in your soup. I use copious amounts.
  2. Place chicken, onions, celery in a large stockpot, cover with water, season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, cook covered for about an hour. Remove from stock, and let cool. Remove meat from chicken, dice or shred (your preference) and return to pot.
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine flour, 1 tsp of salt, and the butter and shortening. Using a pastry cutter (this can be done in a food processor) – combine until pebbly in texture. Add ½ cup water and mix, use more as required to form a soft dough.
  4. Roll dough out on a floured board, until you have reached the thickness you desire. I like my dumplings thin, so that’s the way I roll. Flour generously during this process.
  5. Bring broth and chicken mixture to a boil, and add dumplings a handful at a time. Stirring while doing so will keep dumplings from clumping together. Add parsley. When all the dumplings have been added, cover the pot and turn off the heat. Let this sit for 10 minutes and viola…chicken and dumplings.
