Chicken Dumpling Strips

I've shared this recipe with many people, and all agree-it never fails. The light, tender dumplings are cut into strips like wide noodles.

    This is exactly what I was looking for to make my ham pot pie. I used 1/4 butter instead of shortening and rolled mine a little thinner as I don't like gummy noodles. These worked great!

    These dumplings turned out very nice. I did substitute 1/2 of the shortening with butter as I like the flavor of butter more. (2 tbsp each of shortening and butter) I didn't follow the rest of the recipe as I was making creamed chicken, and so my dumplings cooked into the dilled cream sauce I had prepared, and my family thought they were noodles with the creamy sauce on them. I plan to make this recipe again, next time with the broth as called for. It was very fast to prepare.
