Here's how you can bring this cozy classic to your table:


2 cups of flour, for the foundation of your dumplings

1/2 teaspoon of baking powder, to give them a lift

A pinch of salt, for flavor

2 tablespoons of butter, for richness

1 cup of milk, to bring the dough together

2 quarts of chicken broth, to simmer your dumplings

3 cups of cooked chicken, for hearty bites

Steps to Homemade Bliss:

Start by mixing flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. With a pastry blender or fork, work the butter into the dry mix until it resembles coarse crumbs.

Pour in the milk, stirring with a fork, until the dough comes together in a sticky ball.

Generously flour your rolling surface, as things are about to get deliciously messy. With your trusty rolling pin and a pizza cutter (or knife) at the ready, roll the dough out thinly.

Slice the dough into approximately 2x2-inch squares. Don't worry about perfection; the rustic shapes are part of the charm.

With a floured spatula, transfer the cut dumplings onto a floured plate, layering them with more flour to prevent sticking.

Bring the chicken broth to a rolling boil. Carefully drop in the dumplings, one by one, stirring to keep them from clumping. The flour from the dumplings will mingle with the broth, magically thickening it.

Let them bubble away for about 15-20 minutes until they lose their doughy taste and gain a pleasantly tender texture.

Introduce the cooked chicken to the pot, stir to combine, and serve up this soul-soothing dish.

There you have it, a bowl of homemade Chicken and Dumplings, ready to comfort and satisfy with every spoonful.
