1/2 Cup Milk
1/3 stick of butter
3 cubes Knorr's chicken bouillon
1 whole chicken, cut up, plus..
2 chicken breasts
2 cups self-rising flour
2-1/2 cans of Butter-me-Not canned biscuits (10 per can)
Salt & pepper

Wash chicken and cut off excess fat.
Salt and pepper chicken generously;
Have boiling water ready (large pot 2/3 full).
Add chicken and bouillon to boiling water
Cook thoroughly (1 hour).
Take chicken out of broth and let cool until not too hot to touch, then pick meat off bones in large bite-size pieces.
Spread flour onto counter and add biscuits. Move biscuits one at a time for rolling out. Be sure that biscuits stay dusted thoroughly with flour.
Continue rolling all 25 biscuits, then cut them into approximately 1-inch square pieces.
Bring broth to a boil (full boil) and add butter.
Drop 1-inch pieces into boiling broth -- ONE AT A TIME. Be sure they stay coated with flour.
Do not stir... just lift and separate as you go.
After the last dumpling goes in, turn heat to low boil (simmer or med. low). When done (approx. 15/20 minutes), gently fold chicken pieces into pot. Do not stir.
Add milk (stir very gently). Turn off heat.

Tips: Stirring makes dumplin's mushy; so does freezing. When heating leftovers, use your microwave.

Personal Notes:
These dumplin's are one of the best dishes that I believe I've ever eaten. Kathy made the mistake of making these for us and, since then, when she asks what she can bring to a gathering... you know what the answer is! They are absolutely delicious. The thing about Kathy is that she usually doesn't follow a recipe -- she's just naturally a good cook -- so it was with great effort that Kathy and Doug took the time to write this down for us while she was preparing it. If you try it, you'll join me in thanking her for this effort on her part. --Jeannine
