Homemade Chicken & Dumplings

Homemade Chicken & Dumplings
Ingredients (For broth)
4 cups chicken broth
2 cups water
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 medium onion, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
½ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. pepper
2-3 boneless, skinless, chicken breasts

Ingredients (for dumplings)
3 cups four
¾ tsp. salt
¾ tsp. baking soda
5 Tbsp. shortening
1 cup milk

In a Dutch oven, stir together chicken broth, water, cream of chicken soup, onion, celery, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Add raw chicken breasts. Bring to a boil, cook until chicken breasts are cooked all the way through. Reduce heat to medium. Remove chicken breasts, shred, and return to pot.
In the meantime, mix flour, baking soda, and salt together in bowl. Cut shortening into flour mixture with your fingertips. Add milk ¼ cup at a time, and stir until a ball of dough just begins to form, being careful not to over-mix. Roll out the dough onto floured surface that you don’t mind cutting on. Roll about ¼ inch thick. Using a pizza cutter, cut dough into strips, then cut across the other way to form rectangles about 1-2 inches wide. Drop dumplings into simmering chicken mixture. Cover and simmer for about 20 min., or until dumplings are cooked through.
