Easy Chicken and Dumplings Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 4)
Reviewed: May 7, 2004
I pretty much did my own thing on the chicken/soup part of the recipe so I won't even comment on that part, but the dumplings were a disaster. I doubled the recipe to feed 8, and should have kept the same amount of dumpling batter for the original recipe for 4. I had to throw a big lump of it out. They were gummy, pratically runny, even after the recommended cooking time with the lid securely in place the whole time. They pretty much tasted like cooked flour. Sorry, not my idea of a good dumpling.

Not quite what I expected. The mixture seemed a bit "brothy" and the dumplings didn't quite work. At first, there wasn't enough liquid to hold them together, so I put in more buttermilk and they ended up being weird doughballs. Still in search of a good recipe for this...

I don't know what I did wrong. This was my first attempt at dumplings and I'm no chef but based on the recipe, there didn't seem like enough liquid to poach the dumplings. It smelled wonderful and was overall pretty easy to prepare but my dumplings would have made better landfill. They were rubbery and just overall nasty. I don't blame this on the recipe but my inexperience - but I still think that there should be more liquid some how. I'll give this another try, I just don't think I'll use this particular recipe again.

Seriously, all the boys in our house loved this. My husband had seconds. I have NEVER made dumplings before and this was easy. I do think it could have more broth added to make more sauce. Tasty!

It was very easy I boiled my chicken instead of following the recipe and I thickened the broth before I put the dumplings on top, This is a very good dumpling recipe and I would recommend trying it
