  • Granny's Chicken and Dumplings
    This recipe I've made for many many years. When I finally wrote it down for a friend, my kids were teenagers at home.:)

    Granny's Chicken and Dumplings
    1 large cooking pot
    1 chicken, cut up OR 2 large skinless chicken breasts
    3 cups flour'
    3 teaspoons baking powder
    pinch of salt
    1 1/2 cup skim milk
    3 tablespoons canola oil ( replaces grease from chicken skin)
    Place chicken in pot and cover with water. Cook until tender. Remove chicken, saving the broth for the dumplings. Debone the chicken. Cut into medium bite size pieces. Place back into broth. Add milk and oil.
    Dumplings:
    Mix the flour, baking powder, salt into dough. Turn the sticky dough out on a lightly floured pastry sheet. Knead until texture is where you can manipulate it. Roll out with lightly floured rolling pin. Cut into strip-s about 1/4 inch thick and 2 inches long. Drop gently into broth. Simmer twenty minutes with a lid on. Makes enough for a houseful of teenagers!

    Granny, this looks like a great recipe. About how much water do you use? Can you give me an approximate idea? Thank you:-)

    This is a delicious recipe or I hsould say my family loves it. As far as to how much water, it depends on the size of your pot. Well now that didnt sound right. haha uh, fill your pot about 2 inches from the top. I went and measured my dumpling pot and it holds 6quarts of water so I probably use about 5 quarts .... its somethign you learn to judge hon. As for teh Christmas Sears Catalogue ...nope not a word. Gonna mail them another letter soon ... its odd how when you get older how you long to see "something" one more time.:) That is so sweet of you to ask and to remember that! hugs, Granny

    If you are not on a fat free or reduced fat diet, use the chicken with the skin on. Also if you need anymore help, just ask me hon, that is why I am here. Love granny

    Thanks GrannyBarbieJ_Texas! I have been looking for a recipe like this for a while. My Grandmother used to make Chicken and Dumplings like this, and I want to make the dish for my dad. It's on the menu for next week.

    Hi....Does the broth thicken up at all when you cook the dumplings? Have you ever added any veggies to the broth like carrots or peas?
    Thanks for a great sounding recipe.

    bump for answer to question.
    False
  • RE: Granny's Chicken and Dumplings
    The flour from the dumplings and the milk is what thickens the broth. I've never added any veggies as I like plain old dumplings. Hope this helps ya hon. granny

    I did forget to add that when I cook the chicken I shake in some garlic powder and onion powder and black pepper.
