Nothing says comforting, home cooked food like a warm bowl of dumplings. These delicious herb dumplings are so easy to make, you can throw them together in minutes. This twist on regular dumplings has herbs baked in for extra flavor. By mixing the herbs right in with the dough you get a fresh, one of a kind taste.
Ultimate Comfort Food
I can’t wait to sit down and cozy up with a bowl of these dumplings. The warm, rich broth and soft, flavorful dumplings are great as a side. Mix in cooked chicken or pour over chicken breast slices to make it a meal. The texture of these dumplings is so soft and light, yet as a meal they are very filling.
In a medium sized pot on the stove, start heating 6 cups Chicken Broth to a boil. While the broth is heating, measure 2 cups Flour into a medium mixing bowl. To flavor the dumplings add in ¼ teaspoon Salt, ¼ teaspoon Pepper, ½ teaspoon Tarragon, 1 teaspoon Oregano, and 1 teaspoon Basil. Then mix in ½ teaspoon Baking Powder, to make the dumpling light and fluffy. Stir all your dry ingredients together, then add 1/8 cup cold Butter. Break the butter with your hands into pieces in the flour, about the size of peas. Pour in ¾ cup Milk and mix until just combined.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to about an eighth inch thick. Flour each side and flip over occasionally as you roll the dough, so it doesn’t stick. Then, with a knife, pizza roller, or pasta cutter, cut dough into squares. Once the Chicken Broth is boiling, drop the dumpling squares in, stirring frequently. Cook for about 10 – 15 minutes.
