Brown the chicken in the residual fat, but do not let it burn.
Remove the chicken pieces to a platter and keep warm.
Reduce the heat to moderately How and add the sour cream, flour, and cold water to the Dutch oven; stir until smooth.

To prepare the dumplings, combine the egg, lard, water, and salt in a large mixing bowl.
