How to Make Chicken - N - Dumplins - Cassies


  • 1Put the chicken in a large stock pot. Cover with chicken broth; and add the cut up vegetable, bay leaves.

    Bring liquid to a boil, place on a lid, and reduce the heat to simmer. Cook until chicken and vegetables are done. (about 55 minutes or so)

    Make your dumplings while chicken cooks.
  • 2Dumplings:

    Stir together 1 1/2 cups of flour, salt, pepper, and baking powder. In another dish mix the egg and milk. Add the liquid to the flour and stir until a workable dough forms. (You can experiment with more or less flour or milk until you find the exact consistency you want)
  • 3Dust your workspace with flour and roll out the dough to about 1/4 of an inch..
  • 4Use a pizza cutter or knife to cut the dough into strips an inch wide and the length you’d like. The strips do NOT have to be perfect.
  • 5Loosen the dumplings from work space and sprinkle with flour. (Use the flour you rolled the dough out on) Toss lightly to coat.
  • 6Remove the chicken to a platter to cool. Strain the broth, and return to stock pot along with the vegetables. Remove bay leaves. Add the bullion; stir well.

    Taste the broth for seasoning and add salt if necessary. Bring back to a slow boil.

    Add the dumplings to the boiling broth. Cover with a lid and reduce the heat to simmer. Cook 20 minutes.

    Meanwhile pull chicken off bones into preferred size. Set aside.
  • 7After 20 minutes, remove the lid and stir in the evaporated milk, and the shredded chicken.

    Taste the broth and add more salt if necessary along with a generous amount of fresh ground black pepper.
