This one is for you Laney :)

by Pauline Lancaster

3-5 lbs. chicken skinned
2 lrg onions finely chopped

Put chicken in large pot and boil with one tbsp salt.

Debone Chicken. Throw away the bones.

In another pan braise or boil onions until soft and change color.

Add 2-3 tbsp paprika to onions, after chicken is cooked, remove from pan, add onions and more water to pan (that the chicken was in). Add the chicken back in. Then bring to rolling boil. Add dumplings by spoonful of dough into the boiling soup water.

4 eggs
1 tbsp salt
1 1/2 cups water or more
add flour to make stiff dough

plop dough in boiling water by 1/2 tbsp til dumplings are done (floating at top).

paprika and salt to taste. Then enjoy :)

My grandmother used to make this for us on cold days. It really warms the soul. I have fond memories of her making this in her kitchen. The smells, the sounds, and the family time spent. I had a special request from a dear family member to add this to my blog. I hope you enjoy this as much as we do. It's a simple dumpling and chicken recipe. Not too complicated. My kids favorite part are the dumplings. They are my favorite part too... but they are so flavorful and yummy in this it's hard to resist :) Even fun for making on as a halloween dish... My kids said they look like little floating brains :) what fun kids are! ;)
