Cracker Barrel Chicken And Dumplings Recipe

  • Chicken and Broth
  • 3 quarts water
  • 1 3-4 pound chicken cut up
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 small onion sliced
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and quartered
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 4-6 whole parsley leaves
  • 1 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper


  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons of salt
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons milk

1. In a big pot, bring the water to boil. Add to the pot the chicken, 1 salt teaspoon, onion, celery, garlic, bay leaf, and parsley. Reduce heat to cook the chicken for 2 hours, uncovered. The liquid will decrease by approximately one third.

2. After cooking, remove the chicken from the pot and set aside. To remove all the vegetables and float scum, strain the inventory. You just want the inventory and the chicken, so throw out all the rest.

3. Pour 1 1/2 quarts (6 cups) of the inventory back into the pot (maintain the remaining inventory, if any, frozen for another recipe). You might want to use a smaller pot or a big casserole for this as well. Add heavily ground pepper, the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and lemon juice, then heat the inventory over medium heat while the dumplings are being prepared.

4. Combine in a medium bowl for dumplings the flour, cooking powder, 1 1/4 teaspoon salt, and milk. Stir well and let the dough rest for 5-10 minutes until soft. Roll the dough out to about 1/2 inch thickness on a floured surface.

5. Cut the dough into squares of 1/2 inch and drop each square into the cooking inventory. Use the whole dough. The dumplings will swell first and then slowly decrease as they dissolve partly to thicken the inventory into a white gravy. Simmer till dense for 20-30 minutes. Shake frequently.

6. The chicken will have become cool enough to manage while the inventory is thickening. Remove from the bones all the meat and remove the skin. Cut the chicken meat into bits of bite size or slightly larger than parts of bite size and put them in the pot. Remove the skin and bones. Continue for another 5-10 minutes to simmer the chicken and dumplings, but do not stir too vigorously or the chicken will shred and fall apart. At the end, you want big chicken pieces.

7. When the gravy reaches the desired consistency, ladle on plates four portions and serve hot. Serve steamed vegetables with your selection, if desired.


Cracker Barrel Biscuits

  • 8 servings
  • 2 c Bisquick
  • 2/3 c Real buttermilk

1. Work together to smooth dough with Bisquick and buttermilk. Dip hand in just enough Bisquick to smooth and elastic kneed dough in the bowl.

2. Shape dough into 16 thin patties and place 1 on top of another, forming 8 biscuits in 93 round grated baking pan. Bake 16 to 18 minutes at 450 or until golden. Wipe the tops in butter at once. They divided readily with the 2 parts because of how you formed them.

3. Add 4 ts of sugar to create BONANZA copycats. Shape in 6, 13 thick, 33 round patties. Place in a greased round cooking oven close to each other. In soft butter, wipe the tops. Bake until brown for 450 18 minutes.

4. Cool before serving for 10 minutes. Split thumbs instead of knife cutting. These aren’t going well. Wipe tops with dabs more butter right out of the oven to maintain the surface smooth and tender.
