It's not too hard Susie!
Take your chicken and boil it in watered down broth or boullion. Season your broth so the herbs are infused in the chicken. Once the chicken is cooked, pull it out and it should pretty much fall off the bone, but let it cool before you cut it up. (Should take 45 minutes to an hour to cook, I think.) Add more water/broth to the broth, and add your veggies to cook in it too. When you get the chicken de-boned and cubed, put it back in the broth. When the veggies are about done or done, add your dumplings. I cheat and use Bisquick too, but they always turn out good! The excess starch from the dough will thicken up your broth, but if you want it thicker mix up a bit of corn starch and cold water and add that to the boiling broth. When the dumplings float, it's done.
