Ingredients for making Easy Chicken and Dumplings

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup shortening
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 whole chicken
  • 2 cubes chicken bouillon
  • 2 cups chopped celery
  • 2 cups chopped carrots
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

Directions for making Easy Chicken and Dumplings

  1. Mix flour and shortening together in a bowl until it resembles cornmeal.
  2. Slightly beat egg and milk together in a separate bowl. Add to flour mixture and stir to form a ball of dough. Place onto a floured surface; knead and roll as thin as possible using a floured rolling pin. Let dough stand for 2 hours.
  3. Place chicken into a large pot and add water to just cover. Bring to a boil over high heat and continue to boil until chicken is no longer pink in the center and meat falls off of the bone, about 1 hour.
  4. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh, near the bone, should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
  5. Remove chicken from the pot; strain broth and return to the pot. Add 2 cups water and bouillon. Remove meat from bones and return to broth. Add celery, carrots, and onion. Bring to a boil; continue to boil for 15 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile, cut dough into strips, approximately 1-inch wide. Tear strips and drop into boiling broth. Continue to boil for 10 minutes more. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
