Submitted by: ACADEMY252

Introduction

I make it ALL from scratch so I can control what goes in for my family. There are allergies and we have to cook that way these days. :) I make it ALL from scratch so I can control what goes in for my family. There are allergies and we have to cook that way these days. :)

Ingredients


    I precook chicken and then use cooked chicken pieces

    * Chicken Breast and other pieces 2 cup
    * Chicken stock, home-prepared, 6 cup
    * Water, 6 cups
    * Onions, raw, 1 cup
    * Celery, raw, .5 cup, diced
    * Carrots, raw, .5 cup, chopped
    * Garlic, 2 clove

    For the dumplings
    * Flour, white, 1.5 cup
    * Shortening, 3 tbsp
    * Baking Powder, 2 tsp
    * Milk, 2%, .75 cup
    * Salt, .75 tsp

Directions

I precook the chicken and make the stock ahead to freeze and take out as I need it.

Chop onion into small dice
Chop carrot and celery into small dice or small pieces
Saute veggies in a bit of olive oil until almost soft but not quite - onions will be opaque.
Add chicken pieces and garlic (minced) and salt and pepper to taste
Toss together over heat and then add stock and water.
Bring to a boil and drop in dumplings, cover the pot, drop the heat under the pot and do not lift the lid for at least 15 minutes

To make the dumplings

Measure and sift all dry ingredients together and then add shortening. Cut the shortening in with fork or cutter until about pea sized bits still remain.
Add the milk and incorporate with a fork just until all is moist. Drop by spoonfuls into the chicken soup on the stove and then cover - see above to finish chicken and dumplings
