chicken 'n dumplings

Alexis and I made chicken 'n dumplings today! Alexis did most of the work... I invented measurements for my spices, usually just thrown in for taste. Not too bad... The recipe needs some minor revamping, but oooooh yum!

Heat 6 cups water in Dutch oven. Stir in 2 tsp chicken bouillon or 2 bouillon cubes, 2 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp onion powder, 1 tsp allspice or chosen flavor Mrs. Dash, 1/2 tsp salt, and a dash of pepper. Add 2 lb boneless chicken and simmer on medium low for 1-1/2 hour.

For dumplings, combine 1 cup buttermilk, 1/2 tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp salt, 3 tbsp shortening, and 2 cups all-purpose flour. If you don't have enough room to roll this out on a floured surface, add a couple of tbsp extra flour. Knead for several minutes, then shape into dumplings. After chicken is done, remove and cut into bite-sized pieces. Add chicken and dumplings to broth. Cook for 15 to 20 minutes or until dumplings are soft.

Note: This is very salty... Decrease bouillon if you are sensitive to salt.

Ooooo yummy! I made these today, or tried to, and wow! It was too salty for me, cuz I just made my own little recipe with the spices, and I think I put in wayyy too much garlic salt, Heh, but whatever. I know for next time, and they are still good!

Got a hint for ya though... Just in case you ever want chicken and dumplings and have not the energy to do that part... They make frozen ones you can buy in the store. Frozen dumplings that is... Think that the brand is Anne's or something like that... Anyway, they are strips of dough and are a very good substitute for home made believe it or not. I prefer to make my own too, but sometimes that doesn't always get to happen. lollol I, want, some, now! waaaaaaaaaaaaaah!
