Chicken and Dumplings

This is one of my favorites! Also a very old recipe.


  • 1 chicken (preferably an old hen)
  • 1 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 small onion
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped celery leaves
  • Ad
  • 2 bay leaves
For Dumplings:
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2/3 cup milk


Cut chicken into serving pieces. Cover with water and cook slowly until almost tender. Add finely chopped onion, celery leaves and seasoning. Cook 15 minutes, and then add the dumplings to the boiling broth and meat. To make the dumplings: Stir dry ingredients together. Add beaten egg and milk. Stir until well blended. drop dough from a teaspoon into boiling chicken. Cover tightly. Cook 12 more minutes. Do not uncover until ready to serve.
