The one and only Dave’s Mom's Chicken and Dumplins
1 carrot, scraped and sliced (optional)
2 t. Salt
4 celery branches, sliced (optional)
4 T oil
2 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 t salt
1 Cup milk
4 T oil
Mix dry ingredients together. Add oil and milk; stir just to moisten. Add more flour if neccassary to keep dough from being sticky. roll dough out on floured surface to 1/8" thick- cut in squares (a pizza cutter works best).
Chicken and Base:
Place chicken in large pot. Add water to cover chicken, add remaining ingredients. Cover with lid and bring to a boil, reduce heat and cook 2 1/2 hour. After chicken is cooked remove from the broth and add 1 can of Chicken Broth and 1 can of Cream of Chicken soup
After the chicken is removed put half of the dumplins in the broth. Let cook for ten minutes or until done. Take out of broth and replace with other half and do the same thing. After each half is cooked put them all in the pot along with the chicken that is off the bone cut into small pieces.
