  • TO MAKE DUMPLINGS: Sift about 2 cups of flour and 1 teaspoon baking powder into a large mixing bowl. Make a well in the flour/powder mixture; pour in 1 cup of hot chicken broth, mixing first with a fork, then with your fingers. Add the egg and mix well again.

  • Knead the dough for a few seconds on a floured board. Separate the dough into 4 or 5 parts and roll as thin as possible. Cut into 1 1/2 or 2 inch wide pieces. Break these into 2 inch long strips. Drop into boiling chicken broth and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes. Serve with previously prepared meat.

I was quite pleased to at long last discover a recipe which when produced matched my memories of the 1950's and the dumplings my Aunt made for me. This recipe is only missing her sweet presence to make it a duplicate. Thanks.MammaMO Read More

Just needed to tweak the water in which the chicken is cooked. Add onion celery carrots garlic and anything else you would use to make a good broth.Drain before making the dumplings. Heather Read More

This recipe was wonderful! The only thing was that I rolled it out as thin as possible thinking it would thicken up a little; it may have been even better if I hadn't rolled it so thin! Read More

This is a great recipe I have used is several times. It does make a lot (I am usually only feeding 2 people) but it freezes really well. I make a double batch divide it in fourths and freeze 3 of them for later use. It is best to let it thaw for about 15 minutes. Read More

I used chicken tenderloin instead of a whole chicken and cooked it in broth instead of salted water. I also added thickener celery carrots and some pepper to the broth and a little more flour to the dumplings so I could roll them out. It was a good basic recipe. Read More

Again I have to rave about another wonderful southern dish. I grew up on this stuff and have always had an appreciation for chicken and dumplings. Instead of making dumplings from scratch try tearing biscuits into peices and using that instead...much quicker and tastes wonderful. Good Job Lillian. Read More

It tasted so good and even my pickiest of kids ate and asked for more! (That's a serious compliment!) Thank you! Although I did end up spooning the dumplings in it still tasted wonderful just like mom and granny used to make! Read More
