Chicken and Dumplings


Chicken and Dumplings

I got this recipe from Liz (Mommy Chef) and it was so delicious! I added black pepper to the recipe and made the dumplings big since that's our favorite part.

Liz's Chicken and Dumplings

1 fryer, cut up
6-8 cups water
8 chicken bouillion cubes
1 stick butter
few pinches of black pepper

Dumplings
2 cups flour
1/4 cup vegetable oil
pinch of salt water

1.Boil the water and add bouillion, chicken, black pepper and butter
2.Boil the chicken until cooked all the way through and remove to a plate, reserving all the broth
3. Skim the broth and discard fat
4.When chicken has cooled a bit shred into bite size pieces and add back to broth
5. bring the broth and chicken back to a boil and slowly add dumplings
6. Bring the heat down to low and simmer for 30-45 minutes on low heat until the stew becomes thick

Dumplings
1. In a large mixing bowl using your hands mix the flour, oil and salt.Gradually add enough water to make a dough.
2.Using a rolling pin and a well floured surface roll out the dough very thin and cut into @ 1 in strips with a very sharp knife. Add to boiling chicken stock
