It doesn’t get much more Southern than this. Make a big pot and invite the Preacher over for Sunday Dinner!

1 chicken, cut into quarters
1 tablespoon chicken seasoning
2 cups flour
3 tablespoons baking powder
1 cup whole milk
2 teaspoonss lard or vegetable shortening
1 egg, beaten
1 tteaspoon salt

Place chicken in a large Dutch oven. Add chicken seasoning and enough water to cover chicken with at least 2 inches of water. Bring to a rolling boil, then reduce heat and simmer, covered, until meat can easily be removed from bones. Remove chicken, leaving liquid in pot.

Remove meat from chicken and place meat back into pot. Bring back to a boil.

Mix remaining ingredients to form a dough and spoon into boiling chicken pot liquid.

Cover pot and simmer until dumplings are cooked, about 10 to 15 minutes.
