Directions:
Simmer chicken, onion, carrots, celery and salt in enough water to cover. Cook until chicken is done, 1 1/2-2 hours. Remove chicken from broth, saving 1 quart. When cool enough to handle, remove skin and bones, and dice meat. Melt butter in a cup. Stir in flour mixed with paprika. Add paste to chicken stock gradually, stirring constantly; cook for 2 minutes. Add chicken, cream, pepper, and adjust seasoning to taste. Spoon dumplings on top of gently bubbling chicken mixture and cover. Cook for 15 minutes without lifting lid. Serve at once.

To make dumplings, sift dry ingredients together. Blend in shortening with pastry blender or fork. Add milk and mix well. Dip teaspoon into cold water then into dough, and spoon dough onto chicken mixture as instructed above. These are the best chicken and dumplings you will ever taste.
