How to thicken soups and stews:
Use 2 tablespoons of cornstarch mixed with 1 cup of cool water to add texture to your chicken and dumplings and make it thicker. Stir the mixture well and boil the soup again. Then add and stir it in once the soup begins to bubble and steam.
You can also use flour if you have no cornstarch in your pantry. To do so, use a bit of extra flour in dusting your dumplings. It’s like cooking your chicken and dumplings the old-fashioned way.
Aside from keeping the dumplings from sticking, the flour will also help thicken the chicken broth once added to the pot.
How to keep the dumplings from falling apart:
Don’t put the dumplings into the broth or stock right after rolling them out. Let them sit first for a couple of minutes to slightly air-dry the outside of the dumplings. This will help keep the dumplings from falling apart once they hit the hot liquid.
Scooping the dumplings out of the water will also cause the skin to tear apart once you let it stick to the bottom of the pot. To avoid that from happening, let the dumplings stir gently when putting them into the pot of boiling water.
Letting them boil for too long will also result in the skin falling apart so keep an eye on them while they boil to avoid overcooking.
This is the slow cooker version of the classic chicken and dumplings your grandma used to make. In other words, what used to be an easy recipe is now made even easier by the Crockpot.
