This is a pretty easy recipe, but it does take a little time to prepare. You need to have at least a couple of hours and I think it tastes twice as good the next day.

How to Make Chicken and Homemade Dumplings

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large pot, cover chicken with water, chop onion and celery and add to pot. Add chicken bouillon, bay leaves and old bay seasoning. Bring to a boil and simmer for an hour.
  2. Remove chicken from pot and let cool. Remove meat and discard the rest.
  3. Strain broth and add chicken meat back to pot.
  4. Stir in can of soup. Return pot to a boil and reduce to a simmer.
  5. In a medium bowl combine flour, salt and water. Once dough forms a ball remove and knead for several minutes.
  6. Turn dough out on a floured surface and roll out until about 1/8 inch thick. Let dough rest.
  7. Using a knife or pizza cutter, cut dough into strips, 1 to 2 inches wide.
  8. You should thicken your broth and salt and pepper to taste at this time. Adding 2 T corn starch to 1/4 cup water until dissolved, then turn up heat to a rapid boil and stir in corn starch mixture. You can add more or less cornstarch as you wish. Keep in mind leftovers will be much thicker the next day because of the dumplings that will dissolve into the broth.
  9. On medium heat, take strips of dumplings and tear them off into about two inch pieces and drop into boiling broth. Be careful about stirring so that you keep your dumplings intact.
  10. Simmer for about five to ten more minutes and you're done!
  11. NOTE: Use a breadmaker to cheat on the dumplings. Put the flour, salt and water in the breadmaker and turn on the dough setting. Once it has formed a ball you can turn it off and proceed. The dumplings will not be as dense, but more noodle like, and the dough is much easier to work with.
