    emeraldsitty's Note:

    This recipe has been a family staple for years. No biscuit mix or dough balls here! There are a large # of steps listed- don't let that scare you!! I tried to be very specific so that even a beginner had their questions answered.

    1. 1
      Season chicken with salt and pepper to taste. Place whole chicken in large pot and cover with water. Boil approximately 1 - 1 1/2 hrs or until cooked through.
    2. 2
      Once chicken is cooked through remove chicken and place on large platter to cool. Leave remaining broth in pot on a low simmer.
    3. 3
      While chicken is cooling prepare dumplings.
    4. 4
      To Prepare Dumplings:.
    5. 5
      Add all dry ingredients to a large mixing bowl and mix together well.
    6. 6
      In a separate bowl, add 1 cup of broth and 1 tbsp shortening and let melt together and cool.
    7. 7
      Take egg and whisk before adding to cooled broth mixture.
    8. 8
      Once egg is added to broth stir again to ensure it's well combined.
    9. 9
      In center of bowl with dry ingredients make a well. Then add wet ingredients to this well.
    10. 10
      Mix dough together until it starts to pull away from sides of bowl.
    11. 11
      Flour the working surface and divide dough into 2 balls. This will make it easier to knead and roll out.
    12. 12
      Once divided knead the dough until it becomes firm in texture. Should be approximately 1-2 minutes.
    13. 13
      Roll out the dough to 1/4 inch thickness and cut into strips using a pizza cutter.
    14. 14
      Once you have strips cut return them to the simmering pot. Repeat this process with the second ball of dough.
    15. 15
      Once all dumplings are in the pot bring it up to a low rolling boil.
    16. 16
      Now, while dumplings are cooking remove chicken meat from bone. It should be shredded into small pieces to mix in with dumplings.
    17. 17
      Once chicken is shredded at it back into dumplings and continue to cook for approximately 5 more minutes or until dumplings have "doneness" you prefer.
