Chicken Stew and Sausage Dumplings


  • 1/2 pound bulk pork sausage
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 4 carrots, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 5 stalks celery, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 8 1/2 cups chicken broth, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups Martha White® Self-Rising Flour
  • 1/4 cup Crisco® All-Vegetable Shortening
  • 4 cups cubed cooked chicken

Preparation Directions

  1. COOK sausage in medium skillet over medium heat until browned. Remove from skillet; drain on paper towels.
  2. MELT butter in 8-quart Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onion, carrots and celery; cook until tender, stirring occasionally. Add 8 cups broth; add pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; simmer 15 minutes.
  3. PLACE flour in large bowl. Cut in shortening with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add cooked sausage and remaining 1/2 cup broth; stir with fork just until dough pulls away from sides of bowl.
  4. Drop dough by heaping teaspoonfuls onto boiling stew. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 15 minutes or until dumplings are firm. Stir gently once or twice during cooking to prevent dumplings from sticking together. Carefully stir in chicken; cook until thoroughly heated.
