These are the dumplings I use for my Chicken Fricassee.

Light, fluffy, and flavorful. Very simple and quick to make. I don't think it would be possible to go wrong with them. I don't use hydrogenated fats so I successfully substituted Canola oil for the shortening. I also used 1/3 whole wheat flour because I tend to find items made only with white flour tasteless. 8 servings might be a little optimistic. I fed myself, 2 teens, and a toddler with these on top of some beef stew and I think 6 servings might be more realistic.

  1. Cut the shortening into the flour, baking powder and salt until mixture looks like fine crumbs. Stir in milk and chives.
  2. Drop onto hot chicken. Cook uncovered 10 minutes, then covered 20 minutes.
  3. (These cooking times are only for if you're fixing the dumplings for the chicken fricassee).
