Dumplings

Recipe by  

"My mother was one of the best cooks I ever knew. When she made stews we mostly found dumplings in them. We never ate things from packages or microwaves and you sure could taste what food was. That's the only way I cook today - I don't use any electronic gadgets to cook with except an electric stove."

Outstanding! Absolutely outstanding! My darling hubby has been asking for chicken and dumplings for months. With the weather turning a bit cooler, I decided to give this recipe a try. I was not disappointed, and neither was he. These are absolutely delicious. I used butter rather than margarine and I used two tablespoons rather than one. These were light, fluffy and so tender. I followed the recipe and some of the suggestions by other reviewers. Mix only until incorporated, add to simmering (not boiling) liquid and put a lid on it! Leave the pot alone for the full 15 minutes. This is now our family dumpling recipe. Thank you Carol's Mom.

I found that forming the dough into small balls, keeps the dumplings from falling apart.

I made these to go in "Grandma's Chicken Noodle Soup" and instead of making large dumplings, I made very small ones as requested by my kids, so that they would be bite sized. The recipe was easy to follow, and the resulting soup was so incredibly good. It's a definite keeper!

I am traumatized from a childhood of eating Bisquick dumplings. This recipe has healed me! I made a simple chicken soup by boiling the chicken and adding carrots, celery and a few potatoes. The dumplings are so tender, flavorful and comforting, they thickened the soup to a perfect consistancy. My kids love it too! It's a great change from noodles or rice.

I wanted to make the Chicken and Dumplings III, submitted by Melissa, but I didn't have any canned bisquits. Since it was raining I really didn't want to go to the store so I looked up dumplings and found this recipe. I'm so glad I did, I just wish I would of made a double batch!!!

Good recipe. One taster said it tasted like a biscuit. The buttermilk dumplings I made at the same time were "voted" better. I've read that melting the butter and adding it with the milk has the same or better result. Just a thought for anyone who wants to try this recipe. Worth making.

I used cooking oil for the fat. They came out great. The secret my mom taught me to making "dough boys" as we used to call them is to dip your spoon in the liquid between each dumpling so that the batter doesn't stick to the spoon while scooping. The dough slides right off the spoon.

These dumpling were yummy! One thing that drew me to try them was there was no egg! I love eggs, but not overpowering the flavor of the dumplings. They were easy to make. The only thing if you are a dumpling lover is make the recipe times three. I only doubled it and still had plenty of broth for more. For my family, chicken and dumpling are just that, nothing else.......no veggies, nothing. This recipe is a keeper for us.Thanx!
