Simple Drop Dumplings
Drop dumplings like these are a quintessential comfort food, traditional to the South. The dough is similar to a biscuit but the batter is dropped directly into a soup or stew instead of being rolled, cut out, and baked. The dumplings are then steamed and boiled directly in the liquid in which they’ll be served. For us, that usually means traditional Acadian chicken fricot!
In a large bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, and salt. Use a fork to gradually incorporate milk into the flour mixture. Using 2 teaspoons, drop dough into hot fricot or stew, cover pot, and cook for 15 minutes or until the dough is cooked through.
Dumplings should be added to any soup or stew during the final 20 minutes of cooking.
