IN MEMORY OF MY MOM. This chicken, taught to me by my Mom when I was about 12 years old, was the way everyone I knew did it in Mississippi and Georgia. I hope you like it. It has a crispy, huge thick coating with the southern "touch" (the magical ingredients being the vinegar and baking powder) and tender inside. Oh ! my ! never a chicken like this.
If you love good, old-fashioned, down home chicken and dumplings, this is the real thing! Note that this dumpling recipe makes "a bunch of dumplin's" because around here, most folks want more dumplin's than chicken. (prep time includes cooling time for cooked chicken.)
