4 chicken legs
bunch of dill chopped
1 1/2 cups sour cream
2 Tbs lard
1 onion chopped
salt to taste

1 Lb curd cheese
2 eggs
4 oz semolina

Sauté onion in lard for a few minutes then add a handful of dill and paprika and sauté for a few minutes more. Add chicken legs and enough broth or water to cover and simmer till tender.

Place dumpling on plate next to chicken and pour sauce over chicken and dollop sour cream on dumplings.
