If you're looking for an authentic Southern recipe, Classic Southern Chicken and Dumplings is for you. This recipe uses a whole chicken as opposed to chicken breast because it really packs a flavor punch. Sweet carrots, onions, celery, and a bay leaf create the key flavors in the chicken broth. The dumplings are truly what separate this special dish from a typical chicken soup recipe. Once the homemade dough has been mixed together, roll it into a sheet and cut it into small squares. The dough is then boiled to create delicious doughy goodness before the chicken is added back into the pan. Get ready to feast like a true Southerner.
