Instructions

Cool chicken just slightly; tear into bite size pieces and set aside.

Strain and skim chicken broth; put reserved chicken and broth in large kettle, add cans of broth, chicken and mushroom soups, celery, carrots, onion, potatoes, bay leaf, peas and seasoned salt.

Put cover on kettle; simmer soup on low heat for 2 to 3 hours.

About 30 minutes before serving, mix up dumplings by sifting dry ingredients together.

Add egg, melted butter and enough milk to make moist, stiff batter.
