This was EXACTLY what I was looking for. I cannot tell you how much I despise those flat long dumplings. I like the plump, dense ones and this recipe was perfect. I followed the directions as given and just threw the dumplings into my chicken and soup I had almost cooked. Finished cooking for about 10min with the dumplings, they rose to the top and it was beautiful! I will use this recipe for chicken and dumplings every time!
This recipe was not very good at all. I had high hopes based on the reviews, but it was so heavy and blah. I made sure that I followed the exact directions, but I'm going to remove this from my recipe box. I'm glad it turned out good for the rest of you.
I had a bunch of sourdough starter that I either needed to use or throw away, so I tried adjusting this recipe to make use of it. Instead of the milk and water, I added that much of the proofed starter and omitted that much of the flour. I added the started to the heated butter and added a bit of flour to feed it and let it sit for about an hour and then added the rest of the ingredients (omitting a bit of the flour and just dropping it into the stalk instead of rolling out). It was wonderful in our chicken soup, the only change I might make next time is to use a little less sugar. That might have been from the sweetness already in my starter though.
Yep, these were delicious! These are the dumplings I have been looking for. Actually, they were different than what I was looking for... but better than anything I have tried! I cooked about 12 minutes, and followed instructions exactly other than that, adding them to my normal chicken and dumpling recipe. I agree with poster who said they were too large, though — I would probably cut 1" x 2" squares next time and maybe roll the dough a little thinner than 1/2" -- but will definitely make these again.
I used these dumplings in a chicken soup (chicken and dumplings). So tasty! I'm a gadget person, so went ahead and used my bread machine to take care of the dough for me. Worked like a charm. I only used a little of the dough in the soup and steamed the rest. It made unbelievable steamed buns. Next time I will stuff the dough with some sort of a meat mixture, you know like the hum bao buns?
I was very skeptical to use this receipe, because for me if the dumplings are not chewy and too fluffy...needless to say, I am not happy, however, these were perfect! I just made my chicken and dumplings and could not wait to try.. and all I can say is that they are not too doughy but yet perfectly chewy dumplings!... simply perfect! thank you!
Just like my Nanaws! I will use a little less sugar next time and more salt. Nanaws were less sweet and a little salty. Dad said she also would saute onions till they were a mush, blend them and then put in the dough.
I had never made dumplings before but I love cooking bread with yeast so I tried these out and they were a HUGE hit! I'm a vegetarian so I substituted veggie broth and opted for egg beaters too. I was confused about the 'cut into strips' direction as it seemed they'd be very large so I cut them into 2" by 2" squares. I made potato soup to go along with them and ended up with a big time crowd pleaser!!
