I've tried many other recipes, but this one is our favorite. Light, fluffy and flavorful, it's perfect with chicken, beef or whatever stew you choose.

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

2 c
all purpose flour
1 Tbsp
baking powder
1/2 tsp
salt
2 Tbsp
butter
1/4 c
shortening
1 1/2 c
milk
1 Tbsp
sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Place all dry ingredients in a large bowl and combine with a fork.
2
Add enough milk to get a tacky but not runny batter, you don't want it too thin but not dry either. You need to be able to spoon it in clumps.
3
When your stew (ie: chicken aka chicken and dumplings) is just about done make sure it's boiling and by tablespoonful drop over the top of hot mixture. Move pretty quickly so they cook evenly. Continue until the top is covered with dumplings but not too crowded. Cover and let simmer for 15 minutes.
