  • 1 cup buttermilk, just under a full cup (you can use regular milk if needed)
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 cups cooked chicken
  • 2 liters chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 pinch of salt



Chicken pot and pancakes. A cup of sweet tea. It’s a meal that any Kentucky person would be proud to eat and happy to sit on. And it is not difficult to do so. Come on, I’ll show you how.
Preparation instructions
In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Cut the butter into the dry ingredients using a fork or pastry blender. Add the milk and mix with a fork until the dough forms a ball.
Heavy flour work surface. You will need a rolling pin and something to slice the dumplings with. I like to use a pizza cutter. I also like to use a small spoon to lift the dumplings off the cutting surface.
Roll out the dough thinly using a rolling pin sprinkled with flour. Dip the cutter in the flour and cut the dumplings into about 2″ x 2″ squares. It’s okay for them not to be subtle. Just an eyeball. Some will be bigger, some smaller, and some funny.
Use the spoon sprinkled with flour to place it in a dish filled with flour. Just keep flouring between layers of dumplings.
To cook it, bring the broth to a boil. Drop the dumplings in, one at a time, stirring as you add them. The extra flour will help thicken the broth. Cook them for 15-20 minutes or until they no longer taste like dough. Add the cooked chicken to the pot and you’re done!
