Copycat Cracker Barrel Chicken and Dumplings Recipe

Copycat Cracker Barrel Chicken and Dumplings Recipe

Ingredients

  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 2 ribs of celery, broken in half
  • 1/2 medium onion (keep it as a chunk of onion)
  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts, each breast cut in half
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup + 2 Tbsp milk
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  1. In a stockpot or Dutch oven, add broth, celery, onion, and chicken breasts.
  2. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer, partially covered, for about 15 minutes, until the chicken breast is cooked through. While the chicken is cooking, prepare the dumplings.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir in the milk just until combined into a shaggy dough.
  4. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and roll to about 1/4 inch thickness.
  5. Use a pizza cutter to cut the dough into strips or squares about 1 to 2 inches in size.
  6. Once the chicken is cooked through, remove it to a cutting board. Remove the onion chunk and celery pieces and discard.
  7. Add the dough strips to the simmering broth and simmer for about 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally, allowing the dumplings to cook and the broth to thicken to a gravy-like consistency.
  8. While the dumplings are simmering, shred or chop chicken and return to the pot.
  9. Add salt and pepper to taste, then serve warm.
