Chicken n Dumplins

1 stewing hen cut up
2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup milk
About 3 tablespoons flour
About 1 cup milk

Boil your chicken. While its near done take 2 cups flour, salt, and baking powder and cut in butter and do so until small crumbly appearance. Then add one cup of milk to mixture and stir. Bring broth to a boil, drop in dumpling mixture by tablespoonfuls, then turn heat down to simmer and cook for about 10 minutes. The less cooked at a time the better they turn out. When all dumplings have been cooked and set aside in a dish with the cut up chicken, take the 3 tablespoons of flour and mix with a enough water to make a thick mixture then pour into remaining broth stirring immediately. Then take and add about a cup of milk, along with salt and pepper to taste.
