I never in my life thought I could make homemade chicken an dumplings and they actually taste good. Well, I did and it is all thanks to Rocks In My Dryer! I got this great recipe from her blog. So easy and so good. My husband almost eat himself sick.
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
3 tbsp Crisco (I think this is what makes these so good!)
3/4 cup buttermilk
2 cups cooked chicken, shredded or cubed
2 cups celery
1 cup onion
at least 4 cups chicken broth
Bring broth to a broil; drop in chicken, celery and onion. In a separate bowl, mix together first six ingredients. Roll dough flat, slice into whatever size/shape you prefer (I like half-inch-by-half-inch squares). Drop into boiling broth. Allow to simmer until dough is cooked through, usually about 15-20 minutes.
I did not add the onion or the celery just because I wanted my kids to eat it. Also after I had broil the chicken for a little while I needed to add some water because it was broiling down and I did not have anymore broth. It still tasted very good. Happy cooking :)
