Mom's Chicken & Dumplings

This is a recipe I myself do not make, as the dumplings are next level intense, effort-wise. Absolutely delicious, basically a homemade chicken noodle soup, where the noodles are these delicious squares of flour and egg.

Recipe for the Dumplings

  • 2 cups flour
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 whole egg
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 - 1/2 cup of water
  1. Mix flour, eggs, and salt into a bowl by hand.
  2. Add water gradually until it forms a ball.
  3. Roll dough out on floured surface until 1/4" thich.
  4. Cut dough into 2-3" squares.
  5. Let dumplings air dry for a few hours.
  6. Carefully flip each dumpling and then allow this previously-underside to air dry for a few hours.

Recipe for the Soup

Mom sez: "It’s not written down anywhere because it is so primitive. Basically take a bunch of dark and white meat chicken, add two or three cans of chicken broth, chop up a cup of celery and a couple of onions, maybe a few pieces of carrot for color, throw in salt and pepper and poultry seasoning (About 1 tsp each)and add enough water to make sure the chicken is covered. Put it on low /simmer for three hours. When you’re ready to cook the dumplings pull the chicken out and put it somewhere to stay warm - and then throw the dumplings in the chicken stew water and cook them for half an hour on high."
  • A bunch of dark & white meat chicken (breasts & thighs)
  • 30-40 fl oz of chicken broth (2-3x 14.5oz cans)
  • 1 cup of chopped celery
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 1 carrot, chopped (for color)
  • Salt & pepper to taste (~1 tsp each)
  • Water (enough to cover the chicken)
  1. Place all ingredients into a large soup pot.
  2. Bring to a boil on high on the stove.
  3. Reduce heat and simmer for 3 hours.
  4. Remove chicken and place in covered bowl to keep warm.
  5. Add dumplings to the soup pot and cook for 30 minutes on high.
