This has been passed down in my family for a long time. The dumplings are firm, but very tender and it is a meal in itself. Big hit at pot luck dinners.

Cut into strips about 3 inch x 3 inch and have the chicken broth boiling, drop dumplings into pot one at a time and stir until all cumplings are in the pot.
