I made a pot of chicken soup the other night to use up the rest of the chicken I had bought before it spoiled and it'd been sitting in the fridge until last night when I was so cold after walking home from the bus stop because there's no gas around my area at all and my Jeep's been sitting parked by my house for 2 days now and I'm taking the train to work.. it's just what I've gotta do for now.
.......But anyway... the chicken soup..
I went and heated up the soup last night, picked out the bones and thought to myself this soup need Dumplings... so I headed to the recipe box...
1 Cup All Purpose flour
2 tsp. Baking powder
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbs butter
1/2 C Milk
1. Stir together Flour, Baking Powder, Sugar & Salt in a medium size bowl. Cut in butter until mealy and stir in milk until you've got a soft dough
2. Drop by spoonfuls into boiling soup/stew/broth cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Do not take off the lid while it's cooking!
Soft fluffy dumplings :)
