Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
2 1/2 lb Assorted Chicken Pieces
1/2 cup Onion, chopped
2 Thin lemon slices
1 Bay Leaf, (small)
1 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Pepper
2 1/2 cups Water
1 cup Flour, sifted
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Salt
1 tbsp Onion, chopped
1/8 tsp Nutmeg
2 Egg Yolks, beaten
1/2 cup Half-and-half cream


In a kettle with a tight fitting lid, place the chicken, onion, lemon, bay leaf, salt, pepper and water. Bring to rolling boil and skim away any froth that gathers. Cover tightly and simmer for 30 minutes, or until a chicken breast can be pierced with a fork. Turn pieces of chicken over once or twice during this cooking period.

Dumplings: Mix well the flour, baking powder, salt, chopped onion and nutmeg. Alternately add the beaten eggs and cream to the flour mixture, stirring after each addition. Mix until all is smoothly blended. Drop teaspoonsful of the mixture on top of the bubbling chicken mixture. Close cover tightly again and simmer for another 15 minutes without opening cover. When ready to serve, break dumplings apart with a fork, arrange on a platter with the chicken, and pour the remaining gravy over all.
