Need Chicken n Dumplins Recipe.... A good one

My mom made the BEST chicken n dumplins ever.. She passed away when I was 18 and at the time did not care how to cook anything.... My younger sisters and I have been craving/wishing we had learned how to make it etc. We had a family friend "try" to make us a batch for xmas. She tried very hard, but it was nothing like moms.

I think our biggest issue is getting the "dumplins" to be nice a firm and thick and in large amounts.... The times I have tried to make it my dumplins have turned to moooshh... So any mamas have a secret to getting the dumplins to staying nice a firm.

Like my sister said the other night she likes to be able to slurp the dumplin into her mouth like a noodle if that makes sense.. My mom cut hers into a square.. She rolled them out with a rolling pin and then cut them up and plopped them into the water... I just dont get how she got them to stay thick and firm and not turn into mush...

Thanks mamas.. Any recipes are welcome I will try them all!!!!!!!!

Re: Need Chicken n Dumplins Recipe.... A good one

I have a recipe for Chicken stew with Rosemary dumplings.The recipe comes from Canada's Best Slow Cooker Recipes by Donna-Marie Pye.I'm not going to type out the whole stew recipe right now-if you want the rest of it PM me,I will give it to you.

1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp dried rosemary
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup milk
1 egg lightly beaten

In a bowl sift together flour,baking powder,rosemary and salt.In a measuring cup combine egg and milk.Mix well and add to flour mixture.Stir with a fork to make a lumpy dough (do not overmix-lumps are fine).Drop dumpling mixture on top of the stew.Cover and cook on high for 25-30 minutes (remember this is all happening in your slow cooker).

I have another one which isn't that different-it just isn't in a crock pot recipe.

1 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

Stir in:
1/2 cup milk
Mix and drop by spoonful into soup or stew.Cover and simmer 15 minutes.
Hope that helps,good luck with your search!

Re: Need Chicken n Dumplins Recipe.... A good one

I use Rachael Ray's recipe and it best quickest recipe!

1 1/2 pounds chicken breast tenders
1 tablespoon olive oil, 1 turn of the pan
2 tablespoons butter
1 russet potato, peeled and diced
2 medium carrots, peeled and diced or thinly sliced
1 medium onion, chopped
1 rib celery, diced
1 bay leaf, fresh or dried
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon poultry seasoning, 1/3 palm full
2 tablespoons flour, a handful
1 quart chicken broth or stock, canned or paper container, preferred brand Kitchen Basics
1 small box biscuit mix(preferred brand Jiffy Mix)
1/2 cup warm water
Handful flat-leaf parsley, chopped
1 cup frozen green peas

Dice tenders into bite size pieces and set aside. Wash hands.

Place a large pot on stove over medium high heat. Add oil, butter, vegetables and bay leaf and cook 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Season mixture with salt, pepper and poultry seasoning. Add flour to the pan and cook 2 minutes. Stir broth or stock to the pot and bring to a boil. Add chicken to the broth and stir.

Place biscuit mix in a bowl. Combine with 1/2 cup warm water and parsley. Drop tablespoonfuls of prepared mix into the pot, spacing dumplings evenly. Cover pot tightly and reduce heat to medium low. Steam dumplings 8 to 10 minutes. Remove cover and stir chicken and dumplings to thicken sauce a bit. Stir peas into the pan, remove chicken and dumplings from heat and serve in shallow bowls.

A key to making good duplings is to put on the lid and don't remove until the timer goes off - lol. I agree with the pp; Rachel Ray's is yummy.

Re: Need Chicken n Dumplins Recipe.... A good one

I have noticed that there are 2 kinds of "dumplings".
1. Noodle-like. Rolled out, cut and dropped into hot liquid.
2. Biscuit-like. Prepare a biscuit-type mix and spoon on top of hot liquid.

Just thought I'd add my 2 cents to clear things up a bit.
