Chicken & Dumplings

Enjoy :)

  1. Cook chicken (I do 5-6 chicken breasts) in a large stock pot in water and reserve the liquid. When the chicken is cool chop into squares sorta.
  2. Mix the flour, baking powder and salt. Cut in the Shortening well. Add water and form into two balls. Cover with a tea towel for a bit to let the dough absorbe the water.
  3. Flour up the table and roll out about 1/8" thick. Cut into 1/4" to 1/2" squares and dust with flour so they don't sticke to each other.
  4. Add some Chicken Stock or Chicken Broth and bring to a boil. Dump in the dumplings and cover and reduce to a simmer. Don't open the cover for 30-45 minutes.
  5. Add 4Tbls corn starch to 4 Tbls cold water and stir in well.
  6. Bring to a boil and dump in the chicken bits and give it a stir. Add pepper a salt to taste.
