Chicken and Dumplings

Chicken & Dumplings

In a large soup pot, boil a whole chicken for 1 hour. (While chicken is cooking, prepare dumplings. Combine dough and roll out VERY thin. Cut into 1 inch squares. Allow to dry slightly.) Remove chicken from pot and allow to cool enough to handle. Meanwhile, strain liquid and return to pot, skimming fat if you need to. (Remove chicken from bones and reserve to add during last 5 minutes of cooking time.) Add chicken bouillon to taste (5-6 cubes). Add one onion, chopped, and about 1 lb. of carrots, chopped (3/4 c.). Boil until vegetables are soft. 45 minutes to 1 hour before serving, add dumplings a few at a time. Cook covered for 45 minutes, adding chicken for last 5 minutes of cooking time.

3 eggs
1/3 c. milk
3 T. butter
¼ tsp. salt
3 c. flour
