It’s that time of the year again when comfort food comes to mind. Southern chicken and dumplings can’t be beat as the all-time best comfort food in my book. This dish can be made with leftover baked chicken, bought chicken, or turkey. You can also boil a chicken or chicken breasts for the recipe. My family loves chicken and dumplings and the more dumplings the better we like it!4 cups chopped chicken or turkey, cooked 1 cup chopped celery one 10 1/2 oz. can of cream of chicken soup (I use Campbell’s soup and broth) two 10 1/2 cans of chicken broth 3 of the 10 1/2 cans filled with water Place the above ingredients in a soup pot and bring to a boil. Cover DUMPLING RECIPE Pour 2 cups self-rising flour into a large bowl, cut in 1/4 cup shortening with a pastry blender or fork, add 3/4 cup boiling water a little at a time until you can shape the mixture into a ball. Roll out to about 1/8 inch of thickness on a floured board. Cut into strips, then squares, like in the photo below. Note: It is so easy to cut them with a pizza cutter and much quicker and they taste just the same! Remove lid on pot and add several squares at a time to the boiling broth replacing lid each time for about 30 seconds until you have added all the dumplings. Once all the dumplings are added lower heat to simmer for about 20 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy. Click to follow The Southern Lady Cooks on Facebook.
