TIPS FOR THE BEST CHICKEN DUMPLINGS;

The dough is supposed to be sticky, try not to add any extra flour or overworking it because your dumplings are going to toughen up. It will be easy to work with if you make sure all your surfaces are well coated in flour.

Make sure your spatula is flowered before using it to pick your squares up to prevent them from sticking to it.

Pre-cook your chicken to cut down on time.

Top your soup with parsley when serving for garnish.
