"I don't know if I did something wrong, but most of my dumplings came out chewy. Does the consistency of the broth make a difference (mine was a little thick)? Also, it doesn't say when to add the milk, so I added it after I cut in the shortening. I'll try again some time."
"Am I blind? When do we add the milk?"
"very good, easy and quick, put over hot chicken soup for a wonderful meal. kids couldn't get enough!"
"I confess, I was out of the Biscuit Mix that I normally use to make Chicken & Dumplings. So I whipped up a batch of these dumplings. I am so impressed! These came out so light and fluffy with the perfect texture. I added 3/4 teaspoon of chicken bouillon powder and "my standard" 1 well beaten egg to the batter. I will make these again...soon!"
"Sorry...forgot the stars...My new favorite dumpling recipe...added them to stew, and was asked by my family why I didn't make a few more...best compliment I can give this review...thanks for sharing this recipe."
"Excellent! I had no parsley, but still delicious."
"Excellent! My hubby took one bite and said "Honey, these are excellent dumplings" Quick, easy, yummy... A winner in my book."
"Very Good Dumplings!!...Just like Mom used to make....Doubled the recipe and cooked them exactly according to recipe...Nice and tender...Thanks for sharing,Becky."

"Fantastic!!! These reminded me of the dumplings my grandma used to make - light, fluffy and oh so delicious! I never knew they could be so quick and easy to make. Thank you, thank you, thank you!"
"you know in our family we always ate bread never dumplings. i remeber my dad trying once and they were horriable. I got the secret from your recipe start without lid and finish with lid. thanks"
"I made these dumplings last night with a creamy chicken, celery and tarragon broth. I added about 1/4 tsp. of ground nutmeg to the broth. I did not have any parsley so I used 1/4 tsp. of the nutmeg in the dumpling batter too. Sooo good. I made this recipe just as written. Thank you Becky for a really good dumpling recipe!"
"These were awesome and didn't fall apart!!!!"
"I made these dumplings for my chicken and dumplings and they were ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! They rose up light and fluffy and were delicious. They soaked up a lot of the stock, but made the meal even tastier! So simple to make as well!"
"These were excellent sumplings. They cooked up light and fluffy and complimented the chicken stew perfectly. Thanks for posting."
"This is an absolutely great recipe. These are definitely the best dumplings I have ever made. I followed recipe exactly and they turned out great! Thanks Becky!!"
"These dumplings derserve a 5 star my kitchen. I didnt have any crisco so I used margarine. Excellent texture ! I cooked them in the crockpot. I will post the photo here so others can see how wonderfully they cook up. Now understand they were still cooking. No doughy texture at all. Great recipe !"
"awesome!! I cook them in a bit of watered down cream of mushroom soup with added celery, carrots and leftover roast chicken- yum!!!"
