  • 1 Onion
  • 2 Chicken bouillon cubes
  • 1/4 c Butter
  • 1 c Flour
  • 1 oz Sherry

  • Salt
  • Yellow food color optional


1 1/2 c Flour
2 ts Baking powder
1/4 ts Salt
3 ts Shortening
3/4 c Milk
1 c Cooked peas

Place chickens in large saucepan, cover with water and bring to a boil.
Simmer until chickens are tender. Remove chickens from pan and set aside.
Remove backbones. Add chopped carrot, celery and onion and simmer 30
minutes. Add chicken stock base and remove from heat. Strain and reserve
stock. Melt butter and stir in 1 cup flour until smooth. Add to strained
reserved chicken stock. Simmer 5 minutes. Add sherry and lemon juice, salt
to taste and, if desired, food color.

For dumplings, combine 1 1/2 cups flour, baking powder and 1/4 ts salt in

dumplings by tablespoons onto waxed paper, leaving room in between for
expansion. Steam 8 minutes, uncovered, then cover and steam 7 minutes

Meanwhile, remove skin from cooked chickens and bone, if desired. Cut in
large pieces. Place chicken pieces in casserole. Arrange dumplings on
chicken. Cover with sauce nd sprinkle with pea for color.
