Justin loved the dumplings and gravy but not the chicken
5 pounds cooked cut up chicken pieces
4 cups chicken stock
2 green onions, chopped
3 stalks celery, chopped
1 tablespoon salt
1/4 cup milk
2 cups all-purpose flour, divided
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons chopped fresh
1 cup water
1/2 teaspoon ground black
1. In a large pot place chicken pieces and add the chicken stock, onion, celery and 3 teaspoons of the salt. Put heat on medium low and simmer, partially covered, 15 to 20 minutes.
2.To Prepare Dumplings: In a large mixing bowl beat together the egg and milk. Add the flour, remaining salt and baking powder and mix all together. Cut the butter into the flour mixture until the mixture is crumbly. Add 1 tablespoon of the parsley and mix. In large spoonfuls, drop dumpling mixture onto the top of the simmering chicken. Cover the pot and let all simmer for 10 minutes more.
3. To Make Gravy: Remove dumplings to a large serving bowl. Cover and set aside, keeping warm. Stir 1/2 Cup flour into the stock. Bring all to a boil, stirring constantly, to thicken. Return dumplings to pot, stir gently. Serve with remaining parsley.
