“I was watching Oprah and they have both Tim and Faith's recipes.. Thought I would post to share! I didn't touch a thing! "Tim McGraw made his grandmother's chicken and dumplings for Faith Hill when they were dating! They go perfectly with Faith's cornbread." ---- I guessed at the cooking time -- I will correct asap!---- *** In response to Chef #294686 -- I apologize if there is a mix up. I copied and pasted this recipe as soon as the show aired. They edited the ingredients. It is From the Oprah Show -- I swear it :O) I have updated the ingredients... (Feb.20.06)”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil chicken, adding salt to taste. When tender, pull chicken from the bone and return to the broth.
  2. Pour flour into a bowl - cut the crisco into the flour until crumbly. Arrange flour mixture in the bowl evenly leaving a hole in the middle. Add 1 egg and enough buttermilk to form a doughy consistency (similar to how you would make biscuits).
  3. Sprinkle flour on cutting board. Pinch off part of the dough and roll into a thin sheet and cut into squares.
  4. Drop one square at a time into broth. Continue this until all of the dough is used. Add salt and pepper to taste and simmer until tender.
  5. Allow the dumplings to thicken the broth until it is a creamy consistency.
