Homemade Chicken and Dumplings Recipe

    My family loves Chicken & Dumplings.  If they had their way, they would eat this 3-4 times a week and never tire of it.  I know everyone makes theirs differently but this is the way I have been cooking mine for years and people always swear this is the best they've ever tasted. Hope you'll try it out for your family and they love it too.

Homemade Chicken & Dumplings

                    2 cups of chicken (fresh, frozen, or canned)        32 oz. chicken broth
                    1/2 tsp. seasoning salt                                      1 tsp. celery flakes
                    2 chicken bouillon cubes                                   2 cans (10 oz.) cream of ckn. soup
                    1 can of peas                                                   3 carrots, chopped
                    1/2 tsp. thyme                                                  1/2 tsp. pepper
                    1/2 tsp. dill                                                       1 tsp. parsley flakes
                    2 tsp. onion flakes                                            1 tsp. basil
                    1/8 tsp. turmeric (gives the liquid a nice color)    1/2 tsp. rosemary



For the dumplings:

                    1 1/2 c. flour                                                                 2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
                    1 tsp. salt                                                                    1 c. milk
                    1/4 c. corn meal                                                           1 tsp. parsley flakes


  First, to prepare the broth of the meal, combine all the ingredients together in a large pot.  Cook on medium heat about 15 minutes.  The liquid needs to be nice and hot and bubbly.   As it cooks, prepare the dumplings by stirring all the dumpling ingredients together in a bowl.  
      Once the liquid is nice and hot, drop the dumplings into the liquid by small spoonfuls.  Be sure to leave space in between each dumpling because they will swell up as they cook.

 Let the dumplings cook 3-4 minutes or until the dumplings are done.  Spoon into bowls and enjoy!

    1. Mary, thanks for stopping by. I have made the dumplings that you roll out and cut out but to me, it's just a lot of work and doesn't taste any better so I do it this way. Hope you like it once you try it!
