Bring 8 cups of water to a boil, add chicken whole. Boil for about 30 to 40 minutes till chicken is tender. I boil mine at a lower temperature so it doesn't boil over.
While chicken is boiling, cut up veggies to desired size. Add the chicken base and salt n pepper to taste to the water when chicken is done cooking. W
In a bowl add flour, salt, and baking powder. In a seperate bowl add water and eggs and beat for one minute. Pour over flour mixture and stir with a fork until it is stiff. Then you use your hands to push together to get a smoother dough. Take dough, flour surface to roll dough out. Make sure to roll hard and get the dough so it is no more than 1/8 inch thick. This does take awhile to get to the desired thickness. If you leave them to thick they don't cook all the way through. Once rolled out, take a knife and slice about 1/2 inch wide, then slice each about a 1/2 inch long, or cut to your desired length. They do expand once cooking. Noodles should dry about 3 to 4 hours. I have immediately added these noodles once rolled out and have had no problems with them cooking. During boiling you might find you have to add more water and maybe some more chicken base. Tasting throughout is highly recommended. Cook noodles for about 20 minutes before adding dumplings.
Mix dumplings according to recipe on Bisquick box. Scoop teaspoons full onto boiling stew. Lower temperature to a simmering temperature. Let boil for 10 minutes with no lid. Then cover with lid for 10 more minutes. Serve and Enjoy!!! Makes good for a leftover the next day also. Just reheat and Enjoy.
