"This is an old family recipe for the dumplings, which were originally Polish egg noodles (kluski), and over the years I have modified it to make homemade dumplings." — SLOEFINGER

1 (3 pound)
celery, with leaves
1 (10.75 ounce) can
condensed cream of chicken soup
Note to reviewers and future recipe users: There are two kinds of dumplings - one is a heavy, dense pasta-like dumpling (like this recipe) and the other is a puffy biscuit-like dumpling. These dumplings are just as they are supposed to be for a dense dumpling!
My family hated this recipe. As a matter of fact, they would not even eat because it was all they had...this does not happen often. I was so disappointed.
We invited my 98 year-old Polish/Hungarian great-grandmother for dinner to taste the dish on a cold, wintry New England night. She found the dish reminscient of the old country though she demanded we add a significant pinch of hot Csipos paprika to the broth. It made all the difference. Also, she refused to allow to add the can of cream of chicken. All said, the dish was an utmost success. She wept over memories of the old country as she ate the dumplings one by one. Thank you for this marvelous recipe.
Try this method. Reserve 2 Cups of broth for dumplings instead of water. Then roll out dough of floured board and cut strips 1" x 2" X 1/4 " and then dropping into simmering broth with the chicken.
Good recipe, but my wife is right off the boat from Poland. They don't use olive oil or regular flour in their dumplings.. they use potato flour..these are supposed to be heavy potato flour dumplings. This recipe has been americanized but still pretty good.
I used the recipe for the dumplings. I have my own recipe for the chicken and broth itself. (9/29/03: Simmered chicken with onion, carrot, celery, salt, and parsley.) But the dumplings!!! Wonderful! If you like dense dumplings, these are for you. My husband loved them and told me to make them like this everytime. Definitely a keeper.. Thanks!!
Freaking GOOD. The dumpling recipe is off the hook!! It says 1T salt and go for it, they are incredible.
Excellent, just like my mom's dumplings. These are heavier than other dumplings.....just the way we like them. My mom never uses a recipe so I've struggled trying to replicate hers...Thank you so much.
