The Dumpling Secrets…
Although many recipes call for canned biscuits to be used as the dumplings, I find it much easier to make my own. With just a little flour, baking soda and milk you have the basic ingredients for homestyle dumplings.
Add a little Parmesan cheese and oregano and you have the best homemade dumplings in the world!
When preparing the ingredients for the dumplings, it is important not to overmix the dough. If you mix them too much, the gluten in the flour will be activated and make the dumplings chewy.
When adding the dumplings to the chicken mixture at the end of the recipe, it is important to flip them half way through during the cooking process. This allows the top of the dumplings to finish cooking in the liquid, resulting in perfect homemade dumplings!
Of course, I grew up on Bisquick dumplings which I find still very delicious in a pinch!
