The Barefoot Cook

Southern Style Chicken and Dumplings


Every time we visit my Dad and Stepmother in southern Ohio we can't go away without having Betty make a huge pot of these, they are to die for!!


2 cups all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons shortening
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup water


1. Mix together flour and salt. Cut shortening into flour/salt mixture using a pastry blender, fork or two knives. Stir in water to form a soft dough.


2. On a floured surface, roll out dough very thin with a rolling pin. Cut into 1 inch wide strips. Tear 1 inch long pieces of dough from these strips and drop in with your simmering chicken and broth.

3. Cook 10 minutes with the pot lid off, then 10 minutes more with the lid on. Serve with the broth and chicken meat.
