If you read my Menu Plan Monday post this week you saw that I had Homemade Chicken (or Turkey) and Dumplings on the menu. Homemade Chicken/Turkey and Dumplings is probably one of the least expensive meals ever. I paid less than $10 for the turkey that I used and I used only about 1/8 of the turkey to go with the dumplings.
I really have no idea how much the dumplings cost to make… pennies? I used 2 cups of flour + 1/2 cup of flour to knead into the dough (that I got for super cheap last week at Kroger), 1 cup of broth, about a tsp. of salt and a few sprinkles of pepper.
Here are the step by step pictures of how to make the homemade dumplings:
1) Mix ingredients well and knead in additional flour until the dough is not sticky, but is not too firm either.
5) Dust with more flour and add to 2 quarts of boiling broth (without the chicken – you’ll put the chicken or turkey in for a few minutes after the dumplings are done to heat) one dumpling at a time.
8) Enjoy!! You might need to add a little more salt and/or pepper depending on your taste buds.
