Homemade chicken and dumplings how to save money fast for a car

I make homemade dumplings. My receipt is somewhat different than the one here. I first cook a whole chicken in a large pot how to save money fast for a car of water that completely covers the chicken. Put on a lid and cook on low for about how to save money fast for a car 1-1/2 hours. Take chicken out and cool. Meanwhile, I add about 4 or 5 bullion chicken cubes to how to save money fast for a car the broth as there isn’t enough flavor in the broth by itself. While the chicken is cooling, I make my dumplings. I use 4 cups of flour and two tablespoons of how to save money fast for a car baking powder to 1 cup of crisco. I don’t use butter as it makes them too soft and how to save money fast for a car they are inclined to fall about when cooking. Mix the flour and crisco until you get lumps about how to save money fast for a car the size of peas. Add one cup of broth (cooled) a little at a time and mix as you are how to save money fast for a car adding it. I just do this with my hands. When you have mixed it thoroughly, flour a cutting surface and take 1/4 of the dough and roll out until about 1/8 of an inch. You can make them as thick or thin as you how to save money fast for a car like. I prefer them on the thinner side, but that’s me. If you like them thicker, roll them out a little thicker. As I cut them out, I layer them on a paper plate and put a how to save money fast for a car napkin between layers as this keeps the layers from sticking how to save money fast for a car together an keeps them from drying out while I am how to save money fast for a car rolling and cutting the rest. Make the squares about 2×2 in. And don’t worry if they aren’t all even. Next, I add about 3 or 4 drops of yellow food how to save money fast for a car coloring to the broth as I don’t like the white look of the broth when they how to save money fast for a car are done. You don’t need to add the food coloring if you don’t want to. Bring your broth to a broil. Add one dumpling at a time and stir continuously as how to save money fast for a car you are adding them until you have all in the how to save money fast for a car pot. Reduce the heat to just a simmer and cover. Leave a little room with the lid for the steam how to save money fast for a car to escape or they will boil over even at a how to save money fast for a car simmer. I cook them about 20 minutes and I stir very how to save money fast for a car gently a couple of times while they are cooking. This keeps them from sticking together and they cook better. Turn off the heat and add the shredded chicken. Let them set uncovered for about 15 minutes before serving. This helps them to thicken. If the broth isn’t thick enough for you, just mix a little cornstarch and water and mix in how to save money fast for a car a bowl and then add to the pot stirring to how to save money fast for a car thicken. It may take making them a few times until you how to save money fast for a car have perfected the receipt for your liking.

Well, here is my take… and all we southerners have one. My “granny” would save the chicken necks, tails, back bones,wing tips and extra skin from chickens we would cut how to save money fast for a car up for fried chicken and always place in an old how to save money fast for a car used bread bag into freezer until dumplin time. Then the ‘scraps’ and a whole chicken would be boiled, usually day before. Then chicken deboned and broth cooled so the layer of how to save money fast for a car fat could be taken off and used in the floor how to save money fast for a car with dumplings. Then the chicken fat, crisco and ‘sweet milk’ was used to make dumplins. Once the dumplins had been cooked, addition milk, usually canned pet milk, was added to broth along with a glob of butter, deboned chicken along with lots of pepper. Boiled until a nice gravy is made. Served with a large slice of onion and a slice how to save money fast for a car of light bread to sopp up gravy….. People would come from all around for ‘ma dales’ chicken and dumplins. She had a large boarding house during the war that how to save money fast for a car she always successfully fed. I feel special for being the only one she has how to save money fast for a car passed this technique down to. Enjoy.

Not a naturally good cook at all, but I must tell you for the best chicken and how to save money fast for a car dumplings, one needs to make their own home-made chicken broth. This recipe gave me some tips on how to make how to save money fast for a car it feed a crowd. The chicken itself is not all important. My recipe calls for trying to steam them with the how to save money fast for a car lid on without it boiling over. The same tip is important for good cornbread dressing. Have the dressing really moist to have it not too how to save money fast for a car dry with possibly adding some water if the broth doesn’t do the trick. Good broth needs to include 7 cups of water, one sliced carrot, 1/4 cup finely chopped celery, a small chopped onion, 4 whole peppercorns, 2 bay leaves and 2 tsp. Salt, as well as some chicken parts. Bring to boil, reduce heat to simmer and cook for 2 hours. Strain broth and place in the refrigerator overnight for the how to save money fast for a car fat to solidify. Remove as much of the fat as you can before how to save money fast for a car using broth. This is enough for a 9″x13″ pan of dressing. Some people even put some of the chicken in the how to save money fast for a car dressing and most put some of the chicken in dumplings. Again, I must remind you, go sparingly on the chicken. Don’t overload it. I personally like my cornbread dressing to have both cornbread how to save money fast for a car and light bread and use the chicken for other recipes. I also think too much chicken in dumplings takes away how to save money fast for a car from how good the dumplings are.

Chicken-n-dumplings from my southern grandma. She called the dumplings “slip dumplings”. Tweeked it for my taste. Always all gone! I’m the kind of cook that doesn’t exactly measure everything. I measure by my eyes. Cover a whole chicken, or legs and thighs equivalent to whole chicken amount with how to save money fast for a car water. Add a bay leaf or two. Add a chopped onion if ya like. Cover and boil until chicken comes off the bone. After it’s cooled, refrigerate pot and all. While the chicken is cooking make the dumpling dough. Combine with a whisk, four cups flour, salt, pepper, dill, tarragon, thyme, garlic powder, onion powder, poultry season to taste. Cut in 1 cup crisco or lard. Add enough chicken stock to combine everything. Roll into a ball or two, cover and refrigerate over night. Next day remove the bay leaf and the chicken fat how to save money fast for a car rendered from the chicken, debone the chicken and set aside. (save the bones to make chicken stock later) add some chicken stock to liquid and bring to a how to save money fast for a car boil. Roll out dough onto floured surface. Cut into whatever shape you want. I usually cut into strips about 2 or 3 inches how to save money fast for a car by 1 inch. Usually about a 1/4 inch thick. Make sure both sides are floured. Layer on waxed paper. Drop one by one into boiling stock. Stir gently. Remove to a large bowl when they come to the how to save money fast for a car top. Do not over stir or over crowd or you’ll windup with a big glob of dough. Continue until all the dumplings are cooked. While cooking the dumplings there may be times you’ll need to add more chicken stock or water, do so. Bring to a boil again before adding more dumplings. (optional) add a can or two of concentrated chicken and/or mushroom soup, and about a half cup of peas. Then add chicken and dumplings and gently stir. Cook on low heat for about 10/15 minutes. VOILA! Enjoy! Grandma served this with her coleslaw (chopped cabbage, chopped tomatoes, chopped scallions, salt and mayo) and cornbread. Btw, sometimes I add carrots when the chicken is boiling.
