    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 6-8

    Yield:

    batch

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place chicken in a Dutch oven. Add water and 2 teaspoons salt. Bring to a boil.
    2. 2
      Cover, reduce the heat, and simmer for 1 hour or until tender (should almost fall off bone).
    3. 3
      Remove the chicken from the broth and cool. Bone the chicken and cut meat into bite-sized pieces.
    4. 4
      Bring the broth to a boil and add pepper.
    5. 5
      Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Cut in the shortening. Add the buttermilk, stirring with a fork until moistened.
    6. 6
      Knead the dough 4 to 5 times (never done), and pat to 1/2-inch pieces and drop into boiling broth (I do not pat it out, just pinch off pieces). Reduce the heat to medium-low, and cook for about 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
    7. 7
      Stir in the chicken and serve. I make it in the pressure cooker, much quicker and easier.
    8. 8
      I pressure it for only 30 minutes.
    9. 9
      It can also be done in the crockpot with 3-4 cups water but someone has that book so at this time I cannot give cooking times.
    10. 10
      Good Luck! Hope you enjoy.

      I've been trying different chicken and dumpling recipes for years, usually with disappointment, but this one is fantastic. I actually worked for Cracker Barrel and can say that these come extremely close. I added onion, extra salt, pepper and thyme, which I love, and the recipe turned out perfectly. One tip, after rolling the dough out 1/2 inch thick, I used a pizza cutter to cut it into squares. I like my dumplings on the thin side and these were wonderful.
