This is for all you midwesterners wishing you knew how to make yummy noodles. (We call them "dumplins" around here.)
~Cook some chicken in a pot. I use split breasts and cook them in some chicken stock, onion and celery.
~Make the dumplins:
1 c. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 T. shortening
1/3 c. water
Mix everything together, add the water a little at a time. Roll out cracker thin. Slice into rectangles.
(I like to at least double this recipe.)
Remove the chicken from the pot and shred. Set aside.
Slide the dumplings into the pot, sort of laying them flat/sideways a few at a time. Stir them to keep them from sticking. After they've cooked, add the chicken back in.
I like to serve them with boiled potatoes and peas.
