Servings: 8 people
- 2 medium chicken breasts
- 8-10 cups chicken broth
- 2 cups flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 Tbs butter softened
- 3/4-1 cup milk
- Salt and pepper to taste
In large stockpot add your chicken breasts and chicken broth and bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until chicken is cooked through.
Meanwhile in a medium sized bowl whisk together flour, salt and baking powder until combined.
Cut in your butter until incorporated and then stir in your milk until it forms a dough.
On a WELL floured surface turn your dough out and roll it out to about 1/4" thickness and then using a knife or a pizza cutter cut into 1 1/2"-2" squares.
Once chicken is cooked remove from broth and shred and set aside.
Add your dumplings to the broth and simmer for about 15-20 minutes until they are "cooked" and they don't have a doughy flavor.
Add your chicken back into your broth and dumpling mixture and season with salt and pepper to your liking and heat until chicken is warmed through.
