Directions:
Clean, singe, and cut up the chicken, place it in a pot and nearly cover with water. Cover the pot and simmer gently. An old fowl will require at least three or four hours slow cooking, but a year-old chicken should be done in one and one-half hours. Remove the cover during the last half-hour of cooking, to reduce the gravy to about one and one-half pints when done.
About 20 minutes before the time for serving, add Dumplings/ When dumplings are cooked and ready to serve, add salt and pepper to the chicken and make the gravy by adding to the liquor in the kettle 3 tbs flour stirred to a paste in one cup of milk. Skim out the chicken, lay it on a platter, place the dumplings on the top and pour over them the gravy.
