Chicken n Dumplins

I tried an update today on the traditional chicken and dumplings. I used my mom's original recipe as the "bones" of the meal and then added a few things from a Paula Dean recipe and a few things from an recipe = YUM-O : )

Chicken and Dumplings
Boil 4 Chicken Breasts (Add 1/2 onion cut into fourths, 2 slices lemon, 1 chicken bouillon cube, 1/2 tsp thyme, salt, pepper and garlic salt)
Cube Chicken after cooking. Remove onions and lemon from chicken broth.

2 cups flour 1 rounding tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt shortening- size of an egg
1 scant cup hot boiling stock
(Blonde disclaimer coming from the girl with a burned not put your hands into mixture to knead immediately after removing water from boiling chicken broth..duh..) Knead until not sticky. Roll out on floured surface. Cut in strips. Leave a little flour on the dumplings. Let dry for an hour or more. Drop in hot boiling stock and cook 10 minutes.
Add 1 can cream of celery soup. Add the cubed pieces of chicken and cook for an additional 10 minutes.
