Chicken and Dumplings

Ingredients:

  • 2-3 chicken breast (with bone and skin)
  • water
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 3 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Place chicken and butter in a Dutch oven and cover with water. Boil on medium-high until chicken is done. Remove chicken, debone, and pull apart.

Return chicken to broth and set heat to medium.

Dumplings: Place flour in a large bowl and make a well in the middle. Add milk and vegetable oil. Mix to make a firm dough. Knead dough a few times until dough is no longer sticky. Add more flour, if necessary.

Roll out dough on a floured surface and cut into strips. Drop dough into broth. Stir frequently. More water may be added to make a larger quantity without diluting flavor. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Cook 10-15 minutes on low.
