Southern Chicken and Flat Dumplings Recipe

The Best Cold Weather Comfort Food

Flat dumplings are a southern specialty that get rolled out just like pie crust. Instead of baking, cook them in a flavorful, boiling chicken broth so they end up tender and delicious.

Here's what you'll need to make tender, flavorful flat dumplings.

Using butter will yield good dumplings, but I like to use rendered bacon or chicken fat for more flavor. Poultry seasoning reinforces the flavor of the broth. You're going to love it!

2 cups all-purpose flour 1 tsp baking powder 1/2 tsp kosher salt 1/4 tsp poultry seasoning 1/4 tsp pepper 2 Tbsp fat (bacon or chicken fat preferred) 3/4 cup whole milk


Make the dumplings with The Biscuit Method. 1)Whisk dry ingredients. 2)Cut in fat with your fingertips. 3)Add milk and bring together into a dough. Click below to read more about this method.

Cook the chicken in broth with seasonings. Remove to a plate. Bring broth to a boil and cook the dumplings until tender.
