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.

How to Make Chicken & STEAMED Dumpings

Step-by-Step

  1. 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.

    2. Remove chicken-allow to cool-save broth (Also save some cold broth to mix with Wondra (or fine sifted flour for thickening).

    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.

    Dumplings:

    A. Mix 1/3 Cup milk to 1 Cup Bisquick-mix with fork-put onto floured cutting board
    B. Cut into squares or circles-Dip into melted butter-cooled
    C. Place in steamer with water below-not too close to dumplings
    D. Steam for10-15 minutes-or until fork comes out clean


    YUMMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    PS- I always serve these with fresh or frozen peas
