Chicken Dumpling Strips Recipe

I've shared this recipe with many people, and all agree-it never fails. The light, tender dumplings are cut into strips like wide noodles.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 20 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup cubed cooked chicken


  • 1. In a bowl, combine flour,s alt and poultry seasoning; cut in shortening until crumbly. Combine egg and milk; stir into flour mixture just until combined. On a heavily floured surface, roll dough to 1/4-in. thickness. Cut into 1-in. strips; cut strips into 2-in. lengths. In a large saucepan, bring broth to a boil. Add chicken. Reduce heat; drop dumplings onto simmering broth. Cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in a dumpling comes out clean (do not lift the cover while simmering). Yield: 4 servings.

"This is exactly what I was looking for to make my ham pot pie. I used 1/4 butter instead of shortening and rolled mine a little thinner as I don't like gummy noodles. These worked great!"

"These dumplings turned out very nice. I did substitute 1/2 of the shortening with butter as I like the flavor of butter more. (2 tbsp each of shortening and butter) I didn't follow the rest of the recipe as I was making creamed chicken, and so my dumplings cooked into the dilled cream sauce I had prepared, and my family thought they were noodles with the creamy sauce on them. I plan to make this recipe again, next time with the broth as called for. It was very fast to prepare."
