  • To Make Dumplings: While chicken is cooking, combine the flour, egg, sour cream, and chicken broth in a medium bowl. Mix well and roll dough out on a floured surface. Cut into small squares and drop into boiling chicken broth. In a small bowl, mix together corn starch and enough water to form a thin paste; stir into broth. Continue to simmer for 5 to 10 minutes, or until dumplings are light and puffy.

Decent recipe but with a few holes. I wasn't sure how much water to simmer the chicken in or when to put in the onion. I used the directions for the bullion (1 cube for 1 cup of water) but was disappointed with how salty the finished result was. Read More

Wonderful comfort food. My only complaint would be that it was a little on the bland side. I added some thyme and sage to the broth and it turned out just fantastic. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

This is one of the best recipes I have ever made. Very easy to prepare even though I have never made dumplings before. My 2 year old loved it as well as my picky brother in law. Read More

The dumplings are good. Not like my Great Grandfathers But good. Did not taste the sour cream and is a good alternative to shortening or lard. I added two bay leaves to the broth YUM!!! Read More

This was about as good as one could possibly ask for in a low fat chicken and dumplings recipe. The wife and I both loved it. As for the amount of water used I filled an 8 quart pot about half way up with water then added the chicken celery onion and some poultry seasoning after it came to a boil. That worked very well.

Good recipe. I used less H2O and added sage and poultry seasoning to the broth as one review suggested. I also used whole wheat flour and added 1 cup of sliced carrots for the kiddos...the family enjoyed the meal! Thanks! Read More
