Chicken and Dumplins

by Lori, Robby, and Edna Lewis

1 rotisserie chicken, deboned and shred
2 cans chicken stock
4 cans water
4 carrots, peeled and sliced diagonally
3 stalks celery, sliced
1 yellow onion, sliced
2 cups flour
1/4 t salt
2 t baking powder
1 t brown sugar
2 T butter
2/3 cup milk
1 can cream of chicken soup

Stock then water. Chicken and veggies. Then dumplings one at a time. Finished with cream of chicken soup.

I was amazed at how well this turned out. This was my second time and with the joint help of Lori the first and Robby the second, I dare say perhaps I have mastered this recipe. A fall favorite for shizzle.

You are welcome Tom.

Hello -
I am a filmmaker in Atlanta. I read your blog with the mention of Edna Lewis and her recipes.

I just wanted to let you know I produced a 21 minute documentary about Miss Edna Lewis and its viewable in its entirety on Internet at a Gourmet Magazine website:

and at a Georgia Public Broadcasting website:

My documentary is called Fried Chicken and Sweet Potato Pie.

My website,

has more information about the film and the story of Miss Lewis.
