ADDITIONAL TIPS ON HOW TO PREPARE CHICKEN AND DUMPLINGS
Use white flour, not whole wheat for this recipe. Whole wheat tends to be a bit dense and has less gluten, so the result won’t be as fluffy.
Don’t overmix the dough. Stir it until it’s just combined and you can’t see any powdery flour anymore.
Use a cookie scoop to scoop the dough into the soup. This will ensure that all the dumplings are evenly sized and round.
