      Copycat Cracker Barrel Chicken & Dumplings Recipe

      * 3 quarts water, Bring it to a boil in a Lg Stockpot

      Add the Following:
      * 3-4 lbs cut up chicken leg quarters, skin removed
      * 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
      * 1 small sliced onion
      * 2 stalks celery, chopped
      * 1 clove garlic, peeled and quartered
      * 1 bay leaf
      * 4-6 whole fresh parsley leaves

      Let it simmer on low for about 2 hours.

      Remove the chicken from the stock and place in a bowl. Strain stock, reserving the strained stock only and then add:
      * 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
      * 1 tablespoon lemon juice

      Return the stock to the stovetop over medium heat, add the dumplings:

      In a small bowl combine the following to make a soft dough:
      * 2 cups flour
      * 1 tablespoon baking powder
      * 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
      * 1 1/8 cups milk

      The dough needs to rest 10 minutes before rolling, then roll them out like you would biscuits, about 1/2″ thick.

      Cut the dough into manageable pieces, circles, squares, whatever you want and slide them into the simmering stock.

      Cook for 24-30 minutes. While the dumplings are cooking, shred the cooked chicken meat. near the end, carefully at the chicken meat to the pot, stir and serve.

      I haven’t been to Cracker Barrel for a long time but this sounds delicious. I’ve been looking for some creative ways to use chicken.
      Can’t wait to make it.
