How to Make Mama's Chicken 'n Dumplin's
- Place chicken in water in a large deep pot over medium high heat. Add salt and pepper, and a couple of chicken bouillon cubes if you have them. Be sure chicken is just barely covered by the water. Bring to a boil, cover, and simmer for 40 minutes. Carefully scoop chicken pieces out of water with a large pierced spoon, and place them in a foil-lined baking pan. Keep warm in a 200-degree oven.
- Bring remaining broth to a boil, and reduce volume by about 1/3. Lower heat to a simmer. Stir together Bisquick and milk to make a thick dough similar to drop-biscuits. Do not knead or roll out. Drop by spoonfuls onto simmering broth. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Uncover and cook a little longer until dumplings glisten and appear done.
- Place chicken pieces in a large serving dish. Carefully spoon dumplings and sauce over chicken pieces. May sprinkle with parsley if desired. There shouldn't be any leftovers of this dish!
