What do you "boil" the seasoned chicken in??

Hello snugglebug, You boil the chicken in water in a large stock pot. We've updated the directions to be more clear. Thanks.

This can be made a couple of ways (1) what your recipe calls for and (2) to stay away from noodles, make hard dumplings. I make them all the time and it is easy. G

LOL....this recipe definitely needs to be to just use whitedove2043 recipe that she makes more sense.......

Dumplings? What dumplings?? Sounds like noodles to me! This recipe needs some serious editing. I've been cooking for 71 years and I think I know my "dumplings"!

This recipe sounds almost like mine in which we add the broth from the cooked chicken if anyone would like it here it is: 1 cup bisquick 3 cups flour dash of sea salt 5 eggs enough broth to make like pie dough I blend the bisquick and flour together then add my sea salt (to taste) adding 1 egg at a time I mix it with the flour mixture until I have all the eggs in. I kind of do sections at a time then I add a TBSP of chicken broth just till I have all the dough looking roughly like pie dough then I knead it till it is smooth but not too much. I let it rest for about 15 min. then roll it out to the thickness I want the thicker you want the dumplins the thicker the dough is the thinner you want it the thinner you roll it out. It does swell while cooking. I cook it with out the lid for about 15 to 20 minutes then cover for about the same time. Best way to check doneness is to take the thickest one out and cut in half if it has any dryness in the center then continue to cook for about 15 min at a time. I make sure the dough is floured when I cut the sections as this makes the gravy. I also have carrots, peas, celery, and onions in the broth with the deboned chicken when cooking the dumplins. I hope you enjoy this as much as my neighbors and family.

I think there ith thomething wrong with the word thicken thighs inthead of chicken thighs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

deerfisherman: I double checked, the recipe only calls for one egg and no milk. Let us know if you have trouble once you try making it? We welcome your feedback. Thanks! Blair, editor for

no milk? will 1 egg mix 2 c flour?
