KITKAT is asking: (2 answers)
CAN YOU USE THE PILLSBURY (PRE ROLLED)PIE CRUST AS DUMPLINS FOR THE CLASSIC RECIPE IN WHICH I USUALLY USE FLOZEN STRIP TYPE DUMPLINS? IT IS TYPICALLY THE SAME THING RIGHT?

There is much more fat (shortening) in pie crust than dumplings, but you could try it. Maybe cut strips and bake them first ??

I think pie crust has way too much fat. If you want a real shortcut, do you have any flour tortillas? They come out perfect for me.

I do have tortillas, what do I do just cut them and place them in the boiling broth? And thank you both for the answer,I am trying to boil a few to see if it will work at all. What if I open a can of bisquits? i have known of recipes that place them on top, but i should be able to cut them and broil them as well dont you think? Thanks again for the help.

Stack up the tortillas and cut them the size you want then lightly toss them in flour and drop in boiling broth. When they seem done, end with a but of milk or cream to smooth things out. My mother uses biscuits cut apart and flattened out. I don't like them with biscuits, but then, she doesn't like them with tortillas, so it's all about personal preference.

so I flour the tortillas before dropping them in the broth...but I didn't understand the end part. Were you referring to the broth? Putting in the cream or milk? Just wanted to be sure. And I personally grew up on the BISQUICK topping as dumplings but my family likes the frozen ones and I am in a pinch being so late without my normal ingredients. This site is AWSOME!!

Just lightly dust the tortillas with flour before dropping into the broth. It helps to thicken things.

Prepare your favorite base for chicken & dumplings. Make it brothy. Cut flour tortillas in 1x2 or larger strips. No need to flour them. Drop a handful in to the broth, stir in. Drop another handful in & stir in. Continue. They will absorb the broth & it will thicken. Cook about 5-7 minutes.

ok, I will definately try the tortillas another time, it sounds like something my family will like. As for the pie crust..it seems to be working very nicely and hasn't changed the wondereful flavor of my broth. They are very light as opposed to the heavy dumplins so I guess you could say this has been a successful experiment. :)

Just a final note, as the dumplins completed there cooking, the broth has thickened perfectly! WOW, who would have thought. Just make sure you have plenty of brothbecause it seems the pie crust used alot more juice to cook them than expected. Just a tip.
