Mom’s Chicken and Dumplings

My brother Shane asked me for this after I posted this pic of my bowl of Chicken and Dumplings:

Mom's Chicken and Dumplings

Mom’s Chicken and Dumplings

1 Stewed Chicken

1 1/2 cup self-rising flour

Pot with chicken broth (reserve1/2 cup hot broth)

Debone the chicken, put aside.
Bring broth to a boil. Take 1/2 cup broth and put in 1 1/2 cups of self-rising flour and mix with a spoon very quickly. Drop spoonfuls, one at a time, into the boiling broth; cook until done about 20 minutes, covered. Be careful not to boil over.

After the dumplings are done, add chicken, Mouth watering good.
MY NOTE: I just realized why my dumplings always came out too heavy and doughy. Its the flour! I was always using normal flour and she has here self-rising flour. I’m going to try again doing it her way. I also add veggies, like celery or carrots or whatever I’m in the mood for.

Beth’s Note: I was using Bisquick but it basically melts into the broth. Not good.

My Note: I remember mom using Bisquick also, I think she did that when she didn’t have a lot of time.
