SOUTHERN CHICKEN N' DUMPLINGS
2-3 chicken breast (with bone and skin) water 1 stick of butter 3 cups self-rising flour 1 cup milk 1/2 cup vegetable oil salt and pepper, to taste
Place chicken and butter in a Dutch oven and cover with water. Boil on medium-high until chicken is done. Remove chicken, debone, and pull apart.
Return chicken to broth and set heat to medium.
Dumplings: Place flour in a large bowl and make a well in the middle. Add milk and vegetable oil. Stir to make a firm dough. Knead dough a few times until dough is no longer sticky. Add more flour, if necessary.
Roll out dough on a floured surface and cut into strips. Drop dough into broth. Stir frequently. More water may be added to make a larger quantity without diluting flavor. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Cook 10-15 minutes on low.
