    Yeah, you know. Recipe. Your directions or explanation on how you prepare chicken & dumplings. OR does your signature explain your question?

    LOL! Use a 3-4 lb chicken. Cut into the classic 8 pieces. Cover with an extra inch of water and bring to a boil. Then simmer(covered) until done, usually 1 hour to 1.25 hours. Remove the chicken and cool. Pull the chicken off the bone ala "pulled pork" style. Add 3 tablespoons of flour for a thickening agent. Make a biscuit dough and add back in teaspoon amounts. I also add two cloves of "garlic paste". My dad uses canned biscuits breaking each biscuit into 5 pieces. Simmer until done and then season with a little salt and a lot of fresh cracked pepper. Toss the chicken meat back into the mix. I also add a bit of Tabasco or crushed pepper flake.

    I'm just looking for something new.

    This is one of my favorite winter meals. My Grandmother always made the very best chicken and dumplings. I look forward to your recipes!

    I don't think I've ever even had this...that's what I get I guess for growing up deprived in the Great White North. Salmon and seal cakes with maple syrup for us, 5 days a week. Weekends was back bacon and Kokanee beer. I liked weekends.

    I am going to have to try this one out.

    Make a chicken stock, up to 4 hours.

    add chicken, add vegetables, add cream of chicken soup (thickening agent, and salt) and for my dumplings, i use just premade biscuit dough out of a can :P

    This is the time of year for comfort food.

    Dumplings:

    1 Cups of flour
    Tsp Salt
    2 Tsp Baking powder
    Cup Butter (or margarine)
    1 Cup Milk (or as much to make the dumpling as liquid as you like . . . I like them to be fairly gloopy)
    1 Bunch Chopped fresh parsley or Thyme (for me about 3 Tbsp of parsley or a couple of Tsp. of Thyme works)

    Stayed with my usual recipe. The girls loved it enough to have two bowls each! This rates right up with a good stew for winter comfort food!

    Just saw this post. Chicken and Dumplings have been our Christmas Day lunch/dinner traditional meal for at least a decade (probably closer to 2 - which makes my next statement even more embarrassing). Though I'm embarrassed to say, I've never participated in the dumpling making process. (I know, shame on me ) My kitchen duties are confined to cooking the chicken and shredding it. I don't go to the trouble of cutting the chicken up, just plop the whole thing in the pot, after removing the skin. I include the neck bones and "innards" when provided. We have also made it with only boneless/skinless breasts. We love this meal!

    After the de-boning process I toss all of the bones back into a pot add water and cook down. I then do a more thorough bone pickin' and use the meat and chicken stock to add to our She-Boxer's daily kibble.
