What's for dinner?: Mom's Chicken & Dumplings

We ate this a lot growing up and my favorite part was the dumplings. I wish I could still eat it! Maybe someday.

Mom's Chicken & Dumplings

If not on a diet or watching fat: Boil 2-3 lb young chicken.
If on a diet and/or watching fat: Boil 2-3 lb skinless, boneless chicken breasts or tenders.

When done (about 10 minutes) take out and set aside.

Add 2 T butter to broth.

Mix together 3 C flour, 1 t salt, 1/2 t pepper & enough chicken broth (in the pot) to make a dough. Roll out the dough to desired thickness (I like 1/4") and cut into strips.

Add half the strips to the chicken broth, cover and cook 5 minutes.

Add the rest of the strips and cook uncovered for 15-20 minutes.

Meanwhile cut into chunks or shred the meat.

When 15-20 minutes is up, add chicken, 1/2 C milk & salt & pepper to taste.

Serve hot.

Good with cornbread!
