How Do I Make Dumplings With Bisquick?

Started 1329377308.49 in Kitchen & Food Talk | Last reply 1330308887.83 by Goldreich

I'd like to make chicken and dumplings. Usually I make the dumplings from scratch. I'd like to try using Bisquick. How do you make dumplings from Bisquick?

I agree! I love Bisquick's big fluffy dumplings!

I usually use a bigger spoon than a tbsp. 'cause I like 'em big!

and if you want something that looks more like speatzle, just pick off pieces of dough and throw it in the pot

Also, they have a great web site with tons of recipes for Bisquick. I think Bisquick is a staple that should be in every home. There's no better pancakes in the world than Bisquick pancakes. YUMMO!

Just don't lift the lid during the ten minute cooking time!

Here is another.

Fluffy drop dumplings are delicious with stews. These dumplings are made with biscuit mix.
Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: 10 minutes
<h3>Here's How:</h3>
  1. In a mixing bowl, combine 2 cups of biscuit mix (Bisquick, etc.) with 3/4 cup milk.
  2. Stir mixture with a fork until ingredients are all moist.
  3. Drop tablespoonfuls of the mixture gently onto boiling stew. The stew should be ready to serve at this point.
  4. Cook over low heat (gentle simmer) for 10 minutes, uncovered; cover and cook for 10 more minutes.
<h3>Tips:</h3>
  1. Add dried herbs or grated cheese to the batter for more flavor.
<h3>What You Need:</h3>
  • 2 cups biscuit mix
  • 3/4 cup milk

We have done this for many years. We often add herbs to the broth we cook them in, and sometimes chop up herbs (especially thyme) and sprinkle it in the dumpling mix--it is so pretty!

Don't let the water roil and boil--just a gentle boil. Also, we always cook them 13 minutes with the lid off, then 13 with the lid on. Maybe we make bigger dumplings, but that's what it takes us! LOL!!

Maybe some of you who posted will see this & have an answer for me. My Mom made chicken & dumplings for years with Bisquick & I have always loved them. The last 4 or 5 times I tried to make them the dumplings just disintegrated. I followed the instructions exactly & I'll be darned if I can figure out what happened. Has anyone else had this problem?

I would guess the broth was boiling too hard. You just want a gentle simmer.

Second guess is the batter had too much liquid--add a little more of the powdered mix if it is too loose. Make a test dumpling and see what happens!

I make chic and dumplings all the time and got so frustrated with the stores only carrying two brands of mix now. I can get Jiffy or Bisquick and I don't like the taste of either. It's been so long since I have seen my favorite brand I forgot what it was{#emotions_dlg.confused1}. I am on the search for a new dumpling reciepe.

This is the reason I hate Bisquick: The yeast dies in the box before you can finish it. I have tossed out more Bisquick because you have to use the box within a few weeks or nothing will rise.

Bisquick biscuit and baking mix uses baking powder to rise. It doesn't contain yeast--and it lasts quite awhile unless you buy an old box.

It's not Bisqucik, but someone gave me this tip just recently. You can cut up flour tortillas into rounds, strips, squares, and put them on top of the stew, soup, etc. They will plump up and make dumplings. I haven't tried it, but my friend, who loves to cook, says they taste really good.

You can't go wrong with the Bisquick mix for dumplings. I don't measure because I make an amount that seems right for the people that Im feeding then add more for my husband. He has loved this recipe for decades.

HINT I add a little bit of poultry seasoning to the mix. No too much or they can get a little sagey. Like that word?

Not if you put it in a Lock & Lock container!

Mine lasts forever!

The heat wasn't low enough once you put the lid on and they cooked apart.

I usually have to lower the heat a little more, once the lid goes on.

Once I forgot to and they disintegrated like your.

Goldreich, try the Pioneer Brand biscuit and baking mix. You can get it at Walmart. Far superior imo. The baking powder in these mixes can become inactive.

As for the tortillas, btdt. Not satisfactory for true dumpling lovers.

Sagey? Excellent description of overdosing on poultry seasoning.

Thank you so much. This is the brand I couldn't remember,unfortunately the two Walmart's near me stopped stocking it. I also checked WinnDixie and Publix and can't find it.
I also add Poultry seasoning to my mix.
