I have a great love for Chicken-n-dumplings! My husband has an even greater love for Chicken-n-Dumplings! I recently decided that I shouldn't have to go to Cracker Barrel to get the Dumplings I love! I was on a mission to making them myself.
Wanna know how I did it? Okay, here we go!
Be sure you have an hour and a half or so to devote to this. It's time consuming but so good. I double this recipe so it will last a few days!
Here's what you'll need:
|I know this seems like a ton and it is. I promise it's worth it!|
|Can't forget the milk.|
|Yes, it will take three pans!|
Recipe For Dumplings:
4 Cups Flour
4 Tsp. Baking Powder
2 Cups Milk
8 Tbsp. Oil
16 Cups Water
8 Bouillon Cubes
|16 Cups water with 8 bouillon cubes. |
On high heat. begin to boil water for dumplings while
preparing dumpling dough.
Start by cubing your chicken. I used 4-5 lbs. of boneless skinless chicken breast.
Cover with water and boil!
Combine flour, baking powder, milk and oil to make dough.
Turn dough out onto floured surface and knead 7-8 times.
Using pizza slicer, cut 1inch by 1 inch squares.
1 stick of butter
8 Tbsp. flour
2 Cups Milk
4 crushed Bouillon cubes
1 packet of Splenda
2 or 2 1/2 cups of dumpling water
Add milk, bouillon and splenda. Stir well. Turn burner off. Add 2 to 2 1/2 cups of dumpling water. Stir. Pepper to taste.
Drain water from chicken. Add chicken to sauce mixture.
Couldn't eat another bite if I tried!
