Save Money Making Your Own Dumplings


Don’t waste money making Dumplings from Mixes like Bisquick when they are so darned easy to make from scratch.

I make a type of Chicken Gravy by picking meat off the bone  and boiling the leftover Rotisserie Chicken we have for dinner the night before (on my meal plan for the week), pull the chicken out of the pot when the water hits a boil, add a can of cream of chicken and thicken with Cornstarch and Milk. Season to taste (for us that means, salt, pepper, garlic and powdered onion).

Once it all comes to a boil again I put the dumpling mixture (below) in the pot by tablespoon full and cook for about 15 minutes until the Dumplings are nice and fluffy. I serve the cooked Dumplings and Gravy over the chicken I removed from the pot and sat aside.

These Dumplings are a nice addition as well to soups 🙂


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Mix together and drop by TBSP into boiling broth, gravy or soup pot.

    *NOTE-My family are such dumpling fans I usually make a double batch to add to the pot*
