Shelie's Story

This was a recipe that a boyfriend made for me. He never gave me the recipe, but I loved the dish and started it on my own. Hope you all enjoy.


1/2 c
onions diced
3/4 c
carrots, sliced
3/4 c
celery, diced
2 large
chicken quarters
6 Tbsp
chicken base
8 c
3 c
1 tsp
1/2 tsp
baking powder
bisquick mix..use recipe on box

Directions Step-By-Step

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.

Had a rough day and I wanted comfort food. This hit the spot. Easy to make and very yummy. This is the first time making chicken and dumplings. Found out just HOW MUCH those dumplings expand. Making them MUCH smaller next time. Other than that, it was DELICIOUS. Thanks for posting this. :-)
