This is one of our older recipes, taken from the World's Most Expensive Cookbook (a name given by my family). It's really called Great American Recipes and came in card format, 36 cards once a month. It's hearty and comforting and delicious. Enjoy!

How to Make Chicken and Dumplings

Step-by-Step

  1. Wash chicken. Place into pot. Add water, bouillon, salt, pepper, and half the vegetables. Simmer, covered, about 50 minutes, or until chicken is tender. Remove chicken. Strain and reserve the broth. Remove and discard skin and bones from chicken. Dice meat. Reserve.
  2. In heavy saucepan, heat butter. Stir in flour and paprika. Add 3 cups broth. Cook, stirring, until thickened. Add the rest of the vegetables. Cook, stirring, for about 20 minutes. Add half-and-half, salt, and pepper. Return chicken to sauce. Heat to simmering.
  3. Stir together all the dumpling ingredients to make a stiff dough. Spoon teaspoonfuls of batter on top of simmering chicken mixture.
  4. Cook, covered, for 15 minutes without lifting lid. Sprinkle with parsley.
