This is the recipe for my mama's Chicken and Dumplings. This dish is super yummy and very easy to make and it makes A LOT! The only draw back is that it is time consuming since you have to boil the chicken for 1 hour. However, the rest of the recipe allows you to just dump in the ingredients and be done. This recipe is a hit with my kids and my super picky hubby!
1 whole chicken
1 bag of egg noodles
(Add these ingredients to the pot after chicken and noodles are cooked:)
1 clove of garlic
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
3 Tbsp of minced onions
6 chicken bouillon cubes
1 Bay leaf
1 tsp celery salt
3 cups of water (in addition to the water you will need to boil the chicken)
1 can of cream corn
1 can of biscuits (cut into 1/4's)
1.In a large pot, cover the chicken with water. Boil the chicken 1/2 an hour on each side. Keep the chicken covered with water (add more water during boiling if neccessary. The chicken is done when it falls apart. Remove the chicken, keep the water.
2. Add the bag of egg noodles to the water and boil for about 8 minutes.
3. Add the rest of the ingredients to the boiling water.
4. The dumplings are done when they begin to swell, cover and simmer. (about 10 minutes)
5. Shred the chicken while the dumplings are cooking, dump the chicken into the mixture.
6. It's ready to eat!
