Chicken & Dumplings

...I want to make some!! In the UK they use Suet to make Dumplings, what do they call it in the US so I can look for something similar??

Edit: I know Google is my Friend...I just found this...

You may be pleased to know that the American version (from the Fannie Farmer Cookbook) calls for shortening (the white paste in the Crisco can) instead of suet.  If you need the dumpling part of the recipe, let me know.

I never imagined the expat Limey would want grub on some good old fashioned USA trailer park eats.  LOL.

Dumplings

2 cups (285 g) flour (all purpose is my guess)
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons minced parsley
4 tablespoons shortening
3/4 to 1 cup milk

Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and parsley in a bowl.  Cut in the shortening until the mixture resembles coarse meal.  Add 3/4 cup milk and stir briefly with fork.  Add only enough of the remaining milk to make the dough hold together.  While the chicken is still simmering (about 20 minutes in), drop spoonfuls of the dough on top of the broth.  Cover and steam for 20 minutes without lifting the lid of the pot.

I have not made this before, so YMMV.

My mom always just used the recipe on the box of Bisquick.  So that's all I know how to do, and I think it's pretty tasty.  But then I was raised in the 909...
