Total Time: 1 hour 20 minutes
Servings: 8


  • 2 cups of flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 quarts chicken stock
  • 3 cups cooked chicken
  • Chopped parsley to serve


  • Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium-sized bowl, and cut the butter using a fork or a pastry knife
  • Stir in one cup of milk and mix with the fork until the dough forms a ball. It will be sticky.
  • Flour your working surface generously and transfer the dough into it. Flour a rolling pin also and roll the dough until about ¼ inch thick
  • Using a pizza cutter or a very sharp knife, cut 2-inch squares. Don’t worry too much about the shape
  • With a floured spatula, lift the squares and place them on a plate. Be sure to have the plate floured too and add flour between layers to prevent squares from sticking to each other. In the meantime, while doing this, bring 2 quarts of chicken stock to a boil
  • Drop the dumplings one at a time into the boiling chicken broth stirring while you add them.
  • Cook them for about 15 to 20 minutes until they don’t taste like dough anymore. Add cooked chicken, cook for 5 minutes to heat the chicken up, and serve with chopped parsley.
