My mama could make the best chicken n dumplings...such a southern comfort food. She liked her dumplings really thin but my husband and I like them a little thicker. Just a good, one-dish meal!!!

MAMA'S CHICKEN N DUMPLINGS

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Boil the chicken breast in a Dutch Oven, salt, pepper. I use the bone in chicken breast; I think it makes a better broth. Turn the chicken with a fork. I use only one chicken breast since it is just my husband and I at home now. You can add more if you like. Make sure the chicken is cooked before taking it out to cool. After cooling, pull the chicken off the bone and set aside. Save the broth that the chicken was boiled in but get the lumps of fat out with a spatula or drain it. Place back in pan.
2
While chicken is cooling. Follow the directions on the pie crust mix. Flour really good some wax paper or cutting board and place pie crust on it. Cover with a lot of flour. Roll out with a rolling pin and cut to desired strips.
3
Turn the broth back on to med. or high and let it boil, stir in soup and then while broth is boiling pretty good drop in the dumplings that you have cut. Take your time, then after they have become dumplings, turn the heat down and add the chicken, salt and pepper to taste. Do not put a lid on this while dumplings are cooking. When everything is cooked add the lid if you wish. Serve over rice.
