Chicken And Dumplings

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I really, really want some chicken and dumplings. Has anyone made gluten free dumplings? I'm wondering if my old recipe would work with a basic gluten-free flour or would they dissolve when dropped into the broth? Help!

You might try this recipe. I have used it for a wide egg noodle for beef stroganoff . The really important thing is the thickness and texture of the dumpling. I don't know if this will work.

I recently made the gluten-free bisquick chicken and dumpling recipe, but it is technically chicken and biscuits.  I dropped them in smaller teaspoonfuls so they'd be closer to real dumplings.  Pretty good, though. ( I didn't use canned chicken just cooked up a diced chicken breast)

But on the box itself there is a biscuit recipe that is similar to how biscuits/dumplings should be made.  I am definitely going to try that way out next time.  I think they may hold together, but I guess the only way to tell is to test it.

I love chicken and dumplings too.  I did try the Betty Crocker recipe, but I used the recipe on the box for biscuits (I like my dumplings rolled out and sliced into strips).  While the dumplings did fall apart to some degree, they tasted great.  I'll try adding a bit more flour next time to see if that helps.

Thanks, folks. I am now encouraged enough to try for myself. We've got another freezing spell predicted (this is NOT RIGHT for Mississippi) so I'll try chicken and dumplings for a cozy food.

I grew up with something the PA Dutch called rivvels (no idea how to spell it) in soup.  It's a dumpling alternative you can try.  Beat an egg in a bowl, add gluten-free flour a tablespoon at a time and mix, stopping when you have dough a little gooshier than Silly Putty.  I don't add any xanthan gum, just egg and flour mix.  Use 2 forks to drop small bits into your boiling soup/stew.  When all is in, cover the pot and simmer about 10 minutes.  It will look like wads of chewed gum (I know, appetizing, right?), but sometimes having those little chewy guys in your soup is a nice added texture.  I think they are more like spaetzels than dumplings, but easy and nicely doughy.

I totally forgot about this! I grew up eating my chicken soup this way about half the time. This was what happened when mom was too lazy to make dumplings and it was always delicious!

The weather warmed up and the farmer's market opened, so I'm eating tons of fresh vegetables. Haven't tried the chicken and dumplings, but I will post the results when I do.
