these are great, I grew up on them. but I disagree about dropping them in direct liquid..........I pare boil my chicken and then I use that juice to drop my dumplings in. Also anyone like blueberries? you can use this same recipe to make blueberry dumplings........YUMMMMMMMMM

Here is the exact recipe from the box, just so you know... it's not always printed on the box.

Dumplings: Mix 2 cups Bisquick and 2/3 cup milk until soft dough forms. Drop dough by spoonfuls onto stew (do not drop directly into liquid). Cook uncovered over low heat 10 minutes. Cover and cook 10 minutes longer.

Depending on where you live, you may need to add more liquid. The secret is... DO NOT OVER MIX! and let them set for a few minutes, so they rise.

My grandmother always made this dumpling recipe for her Chicken 'n Dumplings. My husband "hated" dumplings because they were like eating wet raw dough. These are not doughy. Once he tried these he loves them.

I make homemade chicken soup in my crockpot in the fall then when it starts getting cold all I have to do is pull it out of the freezer and add egg noodles or the dumplings and I have a simple, healthy meal that my whole family can't get enough of.

Love the dumplings as do my family. Kids even invite friends over for stew nights. Ho-Hum turn into WOW with the simple addition of your dumplings.

I have been making bisquick dumplings for years and they were great. I just finished making not 1 but 2 batches that were awful. We like the fluffy dumplings and these turned out hard. Please advise.
Thanks Carroll Howen

Just add a teaspoon of olive oil to your dough mix or melted butter

@Carol - I get better (lighter) dumplings if I let the dough sit for 15 minutes or so before dropping them into the soup/stew/gravy.

I recommend adding garlic/onion powder, basil, thyme to the dumpling mix. This adds much flavor. Dumplings fill you up & taste great! Bisquick is a WONDERFUL product!

Thank you so much for the recipe...went to Bisquick web-site and they really fouled me up. Changed my browser and made it impossible to sign-off their web site unless I signed up for all their stuff. They are a BIG rip-off!!!!

it said not to drop directly into liquid. my question where do I drop it? STUPID!!!!

The recipe says drop dough by spoonfuls onto stew, it means you should use a spoon to put the dough into the hot stew and do not use your hands directly, which may burn your hands. I think it is a good thing to mention, nothing wrong with that!

I drop the dumplings right into my boiling soup! It is so easy and so good! Not a drop left!

My MOM used to make the most flavorful, hearty Dumpling stews, soups etc great to have and enjoy over the cold winter months! I have tried unsuccefully to create my own and they never have come out like hers! HELP! Also how about some for camping?

To prevent dry dumplings, stir and fluff the dry Bisquick before measuring. It settles, so you get too much and throw off the proportion of wet to dry ingredients. Don't mix it too much, or it will toughen the dough.

just made these. totally delicious. in regard to the suggestion of the serving size and how many dumplings the recipe yields, it would depend on what size you make. I made large ones it yielded 7. But if you prefer smaller dumplings you could get 14.

I find the dumplings come out hard if there is not enough moisture in the dumplings. Sometimes I add more milk to get the dough the right consistency. It should not be stiff.

2 can progresso soup and dumplings as directed, nice meal for the family in 20 minutes. Need at least 2 cans, dumplings soak up a lot of juice.

I have made dumplings for years, but lately when I make them they are hard and doughy in the middle and yellow looking. Any suggestions?

I know, they are awful. Don't come out fluffy. Has Bisquick changed? I hate the dumpling now.

The calories are way off. the milk and bisquick in 1,040 calories divide by the number of dumplings you make

I read the directions i didn't understand how u don't drop it directly into the liquid when a soup or stew is all liquid

I grew up on these dumplings. Chicken and Dumplings was my favorite meal. My girls love them too. We do not like the noodles that people call dumplings.

Mechanicsburg, United States

To clear up what they mean by "Do not drop directly into liquid"...Stew is much thicker than soup. My chicken stew consists of chicken, vegetables, potatoes and egg noodles and when I drop the dough into the stew it is thick enough that I can drop it on top of the other ingredients without it falling directly into nothing but pure liquid. I also have been making these dumplings for 25+ plus years and agree with everyone else that all of a sudden (with no changes on my end) they are no longer light and fluffy. Lately, mine have been coming out hard and doughy too. I suspect they changed the recipe :( I used to have them mastered!

My wife used to make great dumplings with Bisquick but lately they turn out hard and doughy and don't rise at all. We believe the product has been changed as she has always made them in the same manor. What's going on ?

could be the backing powder is old and therefore
not rising. I keep ours in the refg. until use.
also, since I use thighs for the chicken, I can
put the dumplings on top and they are not in the
juice that much, however I usually scoop juice on top of the dumplins about 3/4 done. I cook mine covered in boiling liquid about 10 min. only. over cooking will make them tough.
most of the time I also add parsley (dried) and
poultry seasoning (about 1 tsp) each. hope this helps someone...
