Chicken 'n Dumplings
I have set about to accomplish this earlier today by thawing 3 split chicken breasts and 2 quarts of home made stock tucked away in my deep freeze for just such an occasion as this.
2 C. flour
2 T. shortening
2 t. baking powder
milk enough to form a dough that can be rolled
Place the flour and baking powder in a bowl and whisk them together well, cut in the shortening with you fingers until very well combined. Make a well in the center of the flour and add a small amount (start with a few tablespoons) of cold milk.
Note: When the recipe was given to me by Mom she wrote it out by cup of flour. For each cup of flour use 1 T. shortening and 1 t. baking powder and cold milk to form dough. If you want to make more or less than this, that would be the formula. Beware of how much you can roll out and cook at one time.
