Dumpling Perfection

Since I started making Chicken and Dumplings gluten free something has always seemed a little "off". The dumplings created with gluten free Bisquick are a little more grainy and dense. They also have a corn undertone that can't be ignored. If you want to make a quick meal with chicken and dumplings than Bisquick is probably your ticket. If not then here is your new recipe for fluffy dumplings.

(Original Chicken & Dumplins)

You'll need:
4 oz Millet Flour
4 oz Brown Rice Flour
4 oz Potato Starch
2 oz Sweet Rice Flour
1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Guar Gum
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 tsp Baking Soda
1 stick Very Cold Unsalted Butter
3/4 c (give or take) Milk

Combine all your dry ingredients and stir until they become one. If you are feeling supremely adventurous you should really sift all of this. But that is time consuming and I am lazy.

Cut in your butter until your mix is the consistency of beach sand. I like to do this with my hands, it's easier to feel when everything is mixed.

Add in your milk and mix thoroughly. Your dough should be sticky, just a little past biscuit dough. If you need more milk, add more.

Drop heaping spoon fulls into a pot of boiling chicken soup and cook for 10 minutes uncovered followed by 10 minutes covered.

Enjoy completely, trying not to burn your tongue because you are impatient like me.

Happy eating!


  1. This is a great recipe! Thanks so much! I used it this evening for some beef stew and even my husband (who is very hard to please with no wheat and/or gluten) liked them! (this recipe is also on pinterest, that's how I found your site) :)

    1. So glad you enjoyed them, they are a major favorite in our home! Thanks for stopping by :)
