“This is my mom's recipe for classic chicken and dumplings. It is simple, hearty, and delicious! I often do the chicken in the slow cooker, and do the rest on the stove when I get home from work. I can have this on the table in 30 minutes using this method. Also, if you really love dumplings, you might want to double the recipe.”

Original recipe yields 6 servings

Directions

  1. Place the chicken into a large soup pot, and pour in the water. Add salt and 2 tablespoons butter, bring to a boil, and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer the chicken until the meat is very tender, 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Remove the chicken from the stock, and allow the chicken and stock to cool. Separate the chicken meat from the skin and bones, and chop the meat into bite-size pieces. Strain chicken stock through a wire mesh strainer into a large pot; set aside.
  2. Bring all but 2/3 cup of the reserved chicken stock to a boil over medium heat. In a separate saucepan, bring 2/3 cup of chicken stock to a boil. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon salt and 4 teaspoons of butter, and bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat. Beat in the flour to form a slightly sticky dough.
  3. Remove dough to a well-floured surface, and roll to desired thickness. Knead in more flour if dough is too sticky. Cut the dough into strips about 4 inches long; drop dumplings into the boiling chicken stock. Reduce heat to low, and simmer the dumplings until tender, about 10 minutes. Stir 1 more tablespoon of butter into the stock to add richness, if desired; return chopped chicken meat to the pan. Stir in evaporated milk; simmer until chicken meat is hot.

Really tasty. Boiled boneless skinless chicken breasts for an hour then shredded. Also added a few tablespoons of chicken bullion for flavor.

Really enjoyed it......it was a fast and easy dinner especially since I threw the chicken in the crockpot in the morning. I had never made Chicken and Dumplings before and it came out great!
