Bone the chicken, discarding all skin and bones, and cut meat into bite-size pieces. Set aside.

The Dumplings:
Combine the flour, baking soda and 1/2 teaspoon salt; cut in the shortening with a pastry blender or two knives until mixture is consistency of coarse meal. Add the buttermilk, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Turn dough out onto a floured surface and knead 4 or 5 times -- no more.
For drop dumplings, pat the dough down to a 1/4-inch thickness, and pinch off 1-1/2-inch pieces.
For rolled dumplings, roll the dough to a 1/4-inch thickness, and cut into 3" x 1" strips.
Bring the chicken broth to a boil, and stir in the milk and pepper. Correct seasonings, if desired.

Drop dumplings, one or two at a time, into the boiling broth and reduce heat to medium-low. Stir from time to time to make sure dumplings do not stick together. Cook dumplings 8 to 10 minutes. Add the boned chicken to the mixture and simmer until heated through. Remove from heat. The chicken and dumpling recipe is ready to serve 6 persons...enjoy it !
