Rumble With The Rooster & Carletta’s Chicken ‘N Dumplings.

The rooster just could not learn the lesson about not attacking the family – even though I tried everything. I think he really just wanted to be in my mother’s delicious Chicken and Dumplings recipe. So his wish came true:

My mother passed away the end of July 2018 – so what a better way to remember her than cooking one of her great dishes!

Carletta’s Chicken ‘N Dumplings

  • 5 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1/2 cup grated onion (optional)
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon parsley

Sift dry ingredients, mix in onion, and milk with beaten egg.

Chicken Gravy

  • 6 tablespoons butter.
  • 6 tablespoons flour.
  • salt and pepper to taste.
  • 3/4 cup milk (or half & half).
  • 1 teaspoon parsley flakes.
