Cook chicken or chicken breasts in pot, covered with water. Salt and pepper to taste. Cook until done and dip chicken out. Cool chicken and then shred. Strain broth and put back into pot. Add two cans of Cream of Chicken soup and margarine. Then add shredded chicken. Stir and bring to rolling boil. Then stir in dumplings. Turn off heat. Close lid tightly. Do not be tempted to check on them. Let sit for about an hour, Then add boiled and sliced eggs.
(None of our customers seemed to care that the dumplings were made with pasta dumplings. In fact we sold the heck out of those dumplings. On Fridays we had standing room only. I would not let anything that I prepared go out of that kitchen until it tasted JUST right to me. Of course, we won’t talk about the problem I had keeping my weight under control!!!!!!!). The pot I used held 12 chickens so you can imagine how much I prepared for the cafe. WHEW!!!!!!
