      This was pretty good, but time consuming. I used about 2.5 lbs of chicken legs. I wasn't sure how long to boil them, but it ended up being about a half hour, maybe a little over. I started with 3 quarts of water and after boiling the chicken, cooking the noodles, and the extra simmer time in between (because I never have everything ready!) when I made the dumplings, I ended with about 1.5-2 quarts of broth. Even cooked down that much it wasn't very strong flavored. I had to add quite a bit of salt and pepper to the pot. The dumplings themselves were good, dense and chewy.
