"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Directions:
Rather than using purchased chicken broth, you can slow boil the whole chicken with the bouillion, salt, pepper, 1 stalk of celery, onion, bay leaves and garlic. When the chicken is falling off the bone, strain the broth into a bowl and debone the chicken. Put the chicken and the broth back into a pot on the stove and bring them back to a low boil. Add fresh celery, carrots and parsley at this time. While the carrots and celery are cooking prepare the dumplings.

This is one of my grandmother's recipes that we just love! As the instructions suggest, I usually make my own chicken stock with the ingredients listed.
