To start combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a medium sized bowl. Then cut the butter into the dry ingredients with a fork or pastry blender. Next stir in the milk, and mix with a fork until the dough forms a ball. Then heavily flour a flat work surface. Youíll need to use a rolling pin and something to cut the dumplings with. A pizza cutter works good for this. You can also use a small spatula to lift the dumplings off of the cutting surface.

Then roll the dough out to a thin depth with a heavily floured rolling pin. Make sure to dip your pizza cutter in the flour and cut the dumplings into squares. Itís okay for the dumplings not to be exact in size. Some of the dumplings will be bigger, some smaller, and some shaped funny. Then use the floured spatula to put them onto a heavily floured plate. Keep flouring between the layers of dumplings on the plate. Then to cook the dumplings, bring the broth to a boil and drop in the dumplings one at a time into the boiling water. Stir while you add them into the water. The extra flour on the dumplings will help thicken the broth. Then cook the dumpling for approximately 15 to 20 minutes or until they are not doughy tasting. Then add the cooked chicken to the pot. Enjoy!
