Grandma's Chicken N Dumplings

Total Time

Wonderful old fashioned recipe that was passed down to me by my Grandmother. These dumplings were ALWAYS a treat at holiday time or for a wonderful Sunday dinner after church.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil chicken in enough water to cover adding the bouillon cubes when water begins boiling until chicken is fully cooked.
  2. After chicken is done remove it from the broth and let cool.
  3. Strain chicken broth, add canned broth and bring back to a boil.
  4. Mix oil, flour and salt until crumbly, then add eggs and enough water until the dough is stiff enough to roll out.
  5. Roll out thin, cut into strips, (I use a pizza cutter for this) and drop into BOILING broth immediately.
  6. While dumplings are cooking, debone the chicken and add to dumplings just before dumplings are finished cooking.
  7. Add salt and pepper to taste.

When it comes to chicken n dumplings, everything is about the dumplings. Unfortuantely these dumplings were so oily they wouldn't stick together to do anything. I had to throw this batch away, and call my friend in Florida to get her family recipe.
