Default Mom's Chicken and Dumplings...

I wanted some Chicken and Dumplings like Mom made when I was growing up, so I called my Sister and started asking questions.....
It turned out great... I think Mom would have been pleased...

As slow as I type it will be summer before i finish, but i'll work on it and post it...


edit:... Jim, I don't know wether to thank you or curse you for asking me to document the Recipe. I have found over the years that there are many Camps when it comes to Dumplings. Some make their own whereas others prefer their favorite label of store bought dumplings.
It is like Momma's Potato salad or Iced tea. There is no right way or wrong way. Only what you love and remember about something.
So, I will go ahead and Thank you, because otherwise I would not have taken the time........Dennis.

That's what my wife uses too, canned biscuits. They taste better to me then my momma's hand rolled dumplings. She even liked them when I took her some. She's in her mid 80's & don't cook much anymore.

A nice looking pot of C & D there.

Default Momma’s and my Sister, Judy’s Chicken & Dumplings…

Momma’s and my Sister, Judy’s Chicken & Dumplings…

The Groceries...
1 whole chicken… (wash & cut in half to help stay covered while boiling)

Lawry’s Seasoning salt.

Chicken Bullion cubes (2)

Chicken Broth (2-14.5oz./wt. cans)

Garlic clove (1)

Celery (4 / 5 pcs,)

Onion (1)

Olive oil (about 1 oz.)

Pillsbury Canned Biscuits. Basic/unflavored (4 cans)

The Tools:

Momma’s 8 quart Revere Ware Pot

Cast Iron frying pan

Wood Spoon

Chopping knife

Cutting board

Large cookie tray.

Large Bowl.

Large Plate.

Strainer type serving spoon.


The Cook…

Lightly coat chicken with seasoned salt and place in pot along with Chicken Bullion cubes . Fill pot with water up to handles and Place on high heat and bring to a rolling boil uncovered for about two hours.
( adjust heat as necessary to keep mild rolling without raising foam to boil over).

While waiting for the chicken to cook, clean and chop celery and onion and sauté in Cast iron frying pan along with the Garlic Clove and Olive oil until onions are caramelized.
Once cooked, add mixture to the pot along with the cooking chicken.

Once chicken has cooked, remove from pot and place on large cookie tray and allow to cool.
( I removed all of the remaining contents in bottom of pot with straining spoon and temporarily placed in large bowl to check for any bones that may have escaped and removed the spent Garlic Clove before returning to pot)
Pour Both cans of Chicken Broth into pot to replace the water that was lost due to Boiling and adjust heat to bring back to a rolling boil. ( I had to add a can of water also to bring level back to original starting point)

While waiting for water to boil, Strip Chicken meat from bones and break up into small pieces and place into the large bowl and set aside…

Open all four cans of biscuits and spread out as many as you can at a time on your cutting board and cut each into three pieces and stack loosely on large plate .
Separate and drop individual pieces into the boiling water until the surface is covered. ( they will swell and look like they will NEVER all fit into pot, but you have to keep the faith and keep going)
With the strainer spoon, sweep the swollen dough to one side and continue adding dumplings into the space you create with each sweep until All of them are in the pot and then gently keep them moving around to keep them from sticking together until they begin to cook and stop trying to stick together.

Dump the Bowl of chicken meat back into the pot and bring back to a gentle boil while carefully stirring and tumbling the contents of the pot. (keep in mind, you are not trying to blend what is in the pot, you are only trying to mix it and keep it moving while it finishes cooking)

When you start to wonder when it is done, pick out a dumpling and let it cool enough to taste it. You will know, trust me...

Thanks for the post and recipe . what differs from the one I grew up with and now make is I add a "lot" of Black Pepper to the boiling chicken with regular salt and use no garlic , Bullion , or olive oil but do use butter instead.

I also use canned biscuits but that is not what grandma used because we didn't have them back then

Thanks again for sharing !!!!!!!!
