  • 1 whole chicken, cut into pieces
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons shortening
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 2 celery sticks, chopped
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons of fresh chopped parsley


  • In a large pot, put in the chicken, carrots, celery, onion, and garlic. Then, season everything with salt and pepper. Add enough water to cover everything and bring it to a boil.
  • Then reduce the heat, and until the chicken is cooked, let it simmer.
  • Once done, remove the chicken from the large pot and set it aside so it may cool. Strain the broth, discarding the vegetables.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, and salt to make the dumplings. Cut in the shortening until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the buttermilk to form a soft dough.
  • Roll out the dough on a floured surface to about 1/4 inches thickness. Cut into 2-inch squares.
  • Bring the broth to a boil and drop the dumplings in it, one at a time, during that stir gently. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 15-20 minutes.
  • While the dumplings are cooking, debone the chicken and cut it into bite-sized pieces. Add the chicken and fresh parsley to the pot. Cook for another 5-10 minutes until everything is heated through.
