Chicken & Dumplings – A Grandma Tested & Approved Recipe!

I know I've struck gold with a recipe when it gets my grandma's seal of approval!

You'll need: 

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour 
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 
  • salt, to taste 
  • 2 tablespoons butter 
  • 1 cup milk
  • 6-8 cups chicken broth
  • 3 cups chicken, cooked
  • pepper, to taste

Here's how to make it: 

  1. In a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Cut the butter into the dry ingredients with a fork or pastry blender. Stir in milk, mixing with a fork until the dough forms a ball. 
  2. Heavily flour a work surface. Roll dough out thin and cut into 2 x 2-inch squares with a pizza cutter or floured knife. 
  3. Bring broth to a boil. Drop dumplings in one at a time, stirring as you add. Cook about 15-20 minutes until they are no longer doughy. 
  4. Add cooked chicken. Season with black pepper, if desired. Serve.

I love chicken & dumplings! It's one of my favorite meals. Have you ever added a couple of boiled eggs? I was weary at first but I promise it makes the meal even more delicious!
