Southern chicken and dumplings

Homemade Chicken and Dumplings

Homemade Chicken and Dumplings, with tender chicken, vegetables, and scratch made drop dumplings, is the kind of comfort food we crave. This meal has the same great taste as a homemade chicken soup, but the fluffy dumplings make it a filling and savory meal. Chicken and Dumplings is an old fashioned favorite recipe.

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 medium yellow onion (diced)
  • 1 carrot (peeled and diced)
  • 2 stalks celery (diced)
  • 4 cloves garlic (minced)
  • ¼ cup parsley (minced)
  • 7 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups cooked and shredded chicken


  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 eggs (slightly beaten)


  • In a large stockpot or dutch oven, melt the butter over medium high heat. Add the onion, carrot, and celery. Give it an occasional stir, but cook until slightly brown, 5-10 minutes. Add the garlic, stir, and cook another minute or two.
  • Add the parsley, broth, and chicken. Stir to combine and bring to a simmer.
  • Meanwhile, combine dumpling ingredients in a separate bowl. When broth begins to boil, reduce heat to keep it at a simmer, then drop dumpling batter into the broth by the spoonful. Once all of the dumpling batter has been added, cover the pot and simmer for 15-20 minutes.
