I don't make dumplings because I don't need the carbs, but I did make some a week or so ago just to see if I could do it. I used the recipe on the Bisquick box, and I think it said to cook them with the lid off first, then add the lid. I thought that was odd because I always heard to have the lid on through the whole cooking time. They turned out good. Too good, and I wanted to eat them all. Won't be making them again!

Here's the recipe I used that said to cook them without the lid first.

Dumplings recipe from Betty Crocker
Ha!! Like you Carol, I've always followed the directions on the Bisquick box!
They turn out perfect every single time. What a concept. When all else fails, follow the directions.

Another hint, don't add your celery and carrots to the mix until just before you add the dumplings, so the veggies don't over cook for the 20 min. it takes to cook the dumplings. The stew should be simmering, not boiling.

When I am cooking the chicken for chicken and dumplings, or for stock for that matter, I add carrots and celery to flavor the broth. Then I remove them, and add fresh carrots and celery to be served with the meal. My mother did that. On some things, I do what my mother told me. LOL

My broth comes from the raw carcass, browned and cooked in the PC. The chicken meat is cubed and lightly browned so that it's tender, juicy and flavorful when added to the soup, in the bowl. The chicken also receives a light salt seasoning. Any other hers and spices go into the broth as it's cooking.

I want the chicken to be as good as the soup.
