Chicken & Dumplings

Sadly again I have no photos of this recipe but am posting it upon request :) I love Chicken and Dumplings...they are so good, especially with some salt & pepper and homemade mashed potatoes. Anyways on to the good stuff.

You Will Need:
  • 4 chicken breasts, boiled till cooked through.
  • Self-Rising Flour
  • Vegetable Oil
  • Milk
  • Box of Chicken Broth
You will need to boil your thawed chicken breasts for about 45 minutes or until cooked through completely. Once they are remove them from the pot of water and into a bowl or pan and using forks or other utensils (because of course, they will be hot) pull the meat off the bone and continue to until you've got the meat separated from the fat and bone.

Next you can start the dumplings. On every bag of self-rising flour (or every bag I've ever bought) there is a recipe for "self-rising" biscuits, (or 'catheads' as we call them). My dumplings are simply made the same way you would make homemade biscuits going by the recipe on your self-rising flour bag. But if your bag just so happens to NOT have a recipe here is mine:

  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • 2-3 well rounded tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup of milk
Blend all those together and either roll out flat and cut out small rectangles with a sharp knife or roll them into small balls (small because they get big when you cook them.)

Finally, drain out about half of the water you used to boil the chicken in and then pour in some chicken broth for the added flavor. Add the meat and the raw 'biscuit' dough to the water and bring to a boil again. Boil it all for about 20-25 minutes (the dumplings will rise to the top of the liquid and float) and then you will have a nice scrumptious pot of chicken and dumplings! Enjoy!
