DIRECTIONS

  • Clean chicken; cut into pieces and place in large pot with water (enough to cover) and boil until tender (skim top).
  • Remove chicken and, when cooled, remove meat from bones.
  • While chicken is cooling, add enough water to broth to make 2 quarts and finely chopped celery, green onions, chopped parsley, chicken bouillon cubes and salt and pepper to taste. Let simmer while you debone chicken and make dumplings.
  • Dumplings: Combine flour and oil or Crisco.
  • Use milk to make manageable dough and roll thin.
  • Cut in strips about 1 1/2-inches wide and then 4 to 5-inch strips or break pieces and drop in briskly boiling broth, one at a time, and move around so they will not stick together.
  • After you get them all to boil for a few minutes, cut down heat; simmer covered 10 minutes.
  • If you don't have enough broth, add boiling water for more gravy in dumplings.
  • While simmering, add chicken to dumplings.
