 1 Whole Hen
 1 Onion, small
 1 Carrot, sliced
 2 Ribs Celery with leaves, chopped
 1 tsp Salt
 4 tbsp Butter or Chicken Fat
 6 tbsp Flour
  tsp Paprika
 ½ cup Light Cream
 White Pepper, to taste
How to Prepare:

Simmer the chicken, onion, carrot, celery, and salt in enough water to cover until chicken is done; 1-1/2 to 2 hours.

Remove the chicken from the broth. When cool enough to handle, remove skin and bones and dice the chicken. Strain the stock and, if necessary, add enough water to make 1 quart.

Melt the butter or chicken fat in a heavy saucepan. Stir in flour mixed with paprika. Add chicken stock gradually, stirring constantly.

Cook for 2 minutes.

Add the chicken, cream, and pepper and season to taste.

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
4 tsps baking powder
1 tbsp shortening
3/4 cup milk

Sift the dry ingredients three times. Blend in the shortening with a pastry blender or fork. Add the milk and mix well. Dip a teaspoon into cold water and then into the dough. Spoon the dumplings on top of the gently bubbling chicken mixture and cover. Cook for 15 minutes without lifting the lid.
