For Broth:
  • 1 whole chicken cut into pieces
  • 1 onion
  • 2 stalks celery cut into thirds
  • 8 cups chicken broth
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 3/4 cups flour plus extra for dusting
  • 1/3 cup shortening
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 hard boiled eggs peel then cut in halves
  1. Combine chicken, onion, celery and chicken broth in a large pot. Salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer covered 45-60 minutes or until chicken is tender.
  3. Remove chicken, onion and celery from broth. Discard skin and bones and chop remaining chicken, set aside.
Make dumplings:
  1. Combine flour, baking powder, salt and shortening with a fork until shortening is mixed in.
  2. Add milk a little at a time and mix until combined (you may not need all of it, you want a soft but not sticky dough).
  3. Knead a few times on a floured surface until dough is smooth.
  4. Generously flour your surface and roll the dough out to 1/8 inch thick. Cut dough into 1 inch by 2 inch strips. Flour generously to avoid sticking.

  5. Add the cooked chopped chicken to broth.
  6. Gently add dumplings to broth. Simmer 15-20 minutes or until tender.
  7. Boil 2 eggs for 10 minutes. Cool, peel and cut in halves then stir into chicken and dumplings.

  8. Serve hot.
