Mamas Southern Style Chicken n Dumplins from Mississippi Hometown Cookbook

Mama’s Southern-Style Chicken ‘N Dumplings

1½ cups flour
½ teaspoon salt
¾ teaspoon baking powder
1½ tablespoons butter
2 quarts chicken broth
2 to 3 cups cooked shredded chicken
Salt and pepper

Sift flour, salt and baking powder. Cut in butter. Add milk, 1 tablespoon at a time, to bring dough to consistency of pie dough. Roll dough out on floured board to ¼-inch thickness. Cut into strips. Cut
strips into 2- to 3-inch lengths. Bring broth to rapid boil. Add chicken then salt and pepper to taste. Drop dumplings into boiling broth and cook until dumplings float to the top. Taste one to make sure
they are no longer “doughy.” You may add butter if you need more fat in the broth.
