  • cups flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ teaspoon baking powder
  • tablespoons butter
  • Milk
  • 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.
