Chicken and Dumplings
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
Well, having eaten both kinds, we like fluffy dumplings that are cooked/steamed on top versus the flat doughy Southern-style dumplings. It's just a matter of personal preference. When making this recipe, I would stir in the cooked chicken right before I add the dumplings. It's already cooked and doesn't need to be boiled. Breast meat will get chewy if it's overcooked.

I made this and it is easy, delicious and a favorite on a cold day.

No Low fat alternative choices if you want REAL fluffy dumplings like your (my) mom made. She made large ones
No, actually dumplings do not ALWAYS have egg in them. Actually, traditional dumplings are baking powder, flower, salt, some type of shortening and a milk product. It is the way the shortening is mixed in that makes them so moist and fluffy. And being steamed on top. This is a good recipe. I made my great-grandmother's traditional dumplings on top though, approved by my boyfriend's brother who is a Master chef. He says dumplings are NOT traditionally made with egg...
Exple, thanks for the dumpling recipe! I really don't like the ones made with bisquick any more .... and Stewart and Lolygagtx .... you're talking about cooked pie dough and those are the most disappointing, awful "dumplings - NOT" I've ever tasted. I ordered chicken and dumplings when we went to Cracker Barrel and we have never gone back. Horrible food. A real dumpling is basically a biscuit cooked on top of a stew, just like the recipe states. They are fluffy and delicious and always have egg, baking powder, and milk. Always.
It amazes me how some think their way is always the only way! I grew up with a southern Georgian Dad and a northern Canadian Mom. The flat dumplings versus drop dumplings fight was settled early. Northern drop dumplings won hands down! Even my soul-food loving Dad admitted the flat dumplings (which were like mushy noodles to me) weren’t as tasty as the light fluffy biscuit-y drop dumplings made from scratch! I don’t know and it may be good, but Mom never used boxed mixes of anything.
To Stewart...the "lumps of dough" ARE dumplings.....made Northern style...strips of dough Southern and Amish style....don't like them....don't eat them......real simple to understand.
These are not Cracker Barrell chicken and du,Pliny’s!!!!
