This is an easy, quick way to make chicken and dumplings. It is not traditional, but it is delicious. IMPORTANT NOTE: this recipe requires self-rising flour. If you do not use self rising flour, it will not work, and you will not get dumplings, just soup. Also, self-rising flour loses its leavening power after 6 months, and it won't work then, either. So when making this recipe, please use freshly bought self-rising flour. For the chicken, I buy a rotisserie chicken, remove the skin, legs and wings, and chop up the breast and thigh meat. This should give you about 2 to 3 cups of chopped chicken. Reserve the wings and legs for another use.
