biggrin This is a good warm bowl to eat when it's cold outside

no It isn't really cold here, but it's cool enough to have this

Boil a chicken or chicken parts.
Keep the broth and cut your cooked chicken into small pieces

The dumplins are for our home to feed two and have leftovers:

1 cup of flour
some salt
some pepper
a 1/4 tsp of baking powder

Okay you mix this and then put some hot broth in there to make it a dough. I use a fork to get to this place.

Then I use waxed paper full of flour and I roll these dumplins out

I cut them into squares on the waxed paper. I make sure my pot of broth is next to the counter where the dumplins have been made. I can pick up the dumplins and drop them in the boiling broth. No messy flour trails to the pot wink

After I get the dumplins in, stirring as I enter them; the chicken comes in.
Patty adds to her pot, something the others don't

Frozen veggies of any kind.

So my meal just takes about 15 mintues to cook the dumplins. It's important not to put too much baking powder in. I did one time and the entire dumplins exploded surprise

explode Where are the dumplins mom, the kids asked floorlaugh

I have made dumplins the other way, biscuits. But this is the version the family I married into, they do it this way. hug

What I find works really good. I can make the dumplins and leave them on the counter to dry out. If my brain is working good, I would pick them each up and turn them over, so they can have less sticky to the wax paper.. Either way, while your chicken cooks, make the dumplins.

It's all one bowl and one pot. The best kinda meal for a working laborer like me thumbsup

This is similar to what we do to get rid of left-over turkey, only we cut our dough into noodles instead of dumplings. Yummy on mashed potatoes.

Anyone ever tried making dumplings with gluten-free flour? I would guess you need the raising properties of wheat flour to make them work? Sounds so tasty.... but two out of my four people are glutenfree....

You know I love the newer versions of flour tortillas
Wheat Flour and they are good

So for sure wheat would work.
I have made wheat bread before
I think if I am right, wheat flour takes more liquid

As these are dumplins that you add as you go, it's all up to you how wet the dough is.

Mtaman, that sounds yummy too biggrin

I think what Sita is saying is that some members of her family have celiac disease. Sita, with dumplings, it's more a case of binding than of rising. Maybe you could make gnocchi instead. They're potato dumplings.

does anyone in your family have an allergy to oats as well as wheat and rye? If not, oat flour, or fine ground oatmeal might also work.


Edited to ask more about Sita's situation
