During the cooking process, you need to add cold water to the boiling water three times before the dumplings are fully cooked. Remember to cover the pot with a lid each time after you add water.
Can I cook dumplings separately?
You will need to cook the dumplings in batches – so drop half of them in the pan and cook for 10 minutes, turning so they cook evenly and puff up. Either serve the dumplings in a bowl separately from the stew, or gently stir them into the stew before serving (John Torode’s favourite way!).
Can you use flour to thicken chicken and dumplings?
Dust your dumplings with a bit more flour. The extra flour is all gonna help keep them from sticking but will also thicken your chicken broth some as well when you add them to the pot. Bring the chicken broth up to a boil. Add in the shredded chicken and stir.

Place 1 cup of flour in a mixing bowl. Add salt and pepper to taste, and stir. This is the coating for the dumplings that will prevent them from dissolving in the broth.

Can you freeze casserole with dumplings?
While regular beef stew can be made ahead and frozen, dumplings don’t freeze as well, unfortunately. Dumplings will lose their firmness, texture and flavour, causing them to fall apart during reheating.
Why are my dumplings gooey?
If you add the dough before the liquid is hot enough, the dumplings will end up soggy and undercooked. If the dough is dropped right into the liquid, the simmering action may break up the dumplings. Also, the dough will soak up moisture from the liquid so the dumplings will become soft and soggy.
Do you cook dumplings covered or uncovered?
Cover and simmer until dumplings are cooked through, about 15 minutes. Once you have covered the pan, do not uncover and peek while the dumplings are cooking! In order for the dumplings to be light and fluffy, they must steam, not boil. Uncovering the pan releases the steam.
Why are my dumplings chewy?
