Chicken n' Dumplings..........

One of my favorite comfort foods is Chicken n' Dumplings. They just make everything better. If you let this dough "rest" for 15 minutes after you pull it together, it rolls out real easy.
Chicken n' Dumplings
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 pinch Salt
2 Tablespoons Butter
1 cup buttermilk, (you can use regular milk if needed)
2 quarts chicken broth
3 cups cooked chicken
In a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Cut the butter into the dry ingredients with a fork or pastry blender. Stir in the milk, mixing with a fork until the dough forms a ball. Roll the dough out thin with a heavily floured rolling pin. Dip your cutter in flour and cut the dumplings in squares about 2x2. Use the floured spatula to put them on a heavily floured plate. Just keep flouring between the layers of dumplings.To cook them, bring the broth to a boil. Drop the dumplings in one at a time, stirring while you add them. The extra flour on them will help thicken the broth. Cook them for about 15-20 minutes or until they not doughy tasting. Add the cooked chicken to the pot and you’re done!
Till next time.......
