For desert it was banana pudding, What great memeories siting around the table with more people then the table could hold laughing and eating to our hearts content.”

  1. Put chicken in stock pot cover with water add salt and pepper to taste and boil until cooked.
  2. After chicken is cooked remove from broth and let cool.
  3. Add two cups of broth to a mixing bowl and let cool.
  4. Add eggs and teaspoon of salt to cool broth wisk until combined.
  5. slowly mix in flour (with wisk fork etc -- not mixer) put in enough flour that the dough is not longer sticks to your hands.
  6. turn out onto counter and knead until dough is somewhat elastic, the kneading is what makes good dumplins finding the space where the dough has substance and yet not to tough.
  7. sprinkle the counter with flour and roll out dough about 1/8 of an inch thick.
  8. cut the dough into strips (i use a pizza cutter) trying to make them somewhat the same size but not prefect.
  9. add the dumplins one at a time to boiling broth and cook until al-denta'
  10. debone the cooked chicken and add the chicken after dumplins have cooked or serve it on the side.
