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.

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!
