Cook 1 fat hen in 1 1/2 quarts water and salt. Cook about 3 hours. When cool, pick meat from bones and cut into small pieces. Thicken broth with 7 tablespoons flour and 3/4 cups water. Mix with egg beater and season to taste. Add a few drops of yellow food coloring. Strain over chicken. Reserve 4 cups of gravy in a flat pan for dumplings.

  • 1 egg
  • 2/3 c. milk
  • 1 tbsp. oil or melted shortening
  • 1 1/2 c. flour
  • 2/3 tsp. salt
  • 4 tsp. baking powder

Sift dry ingredients into liquid and stir briskly until blended. Drop dumpling batter by teaspoons into boiling gravy. Cover and cook gently 8-10 minutes or until done.
