The secret of this recipe is to STEAM the dumplings-either with a steamer pan or if in small batches a folding steamer rack. This is critical because it avoids sticky/slimy dumplings-never drop the dumplings into the chicken mixture, but rather serve it on top of steamed dumplings.

Ingredients

  • ·
    1 chicken or chicken parts
  • ·
    2 boxes + or - 2 cans chicken broth or stock

    Chicken & Dumplings by Grandma Schlueter:


    1. Cover one chicken (or chicken parts-whatever you have will work) with chicken broth or water-Stew for about 1-1½ hours.

    3. Remove chicken from bones-place chunks back into broth.

    4. Thicken with 4 TBSP Wondra flour with ½ Cup cold broth-whisk w/fork or whisk until no lumps-add to broth & chicken. (May have to add a bit more if not thickening)

    5. Heat and stir until thickened.

    6. Serve over steamed dumplings-OK to freeze leftovers in freezer bags/containers for later meals.

    A. Mix 1/3 Cup milk to 1 Cup Bisquick-mix with fork-put onto floured cutting board
