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
1/8 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!
A bowl full of goodness. Doesn't this look delicious?!
