    It was very bland and I didn’t like the consistency of the dumplings.

    I didn’t like the texture of the dumplings. They were soggy

    I used self-rising flour and milk to make the dumplings. They were moist on the outside and so fluffy on the inside, just like a biscuit. I also used low sodium chicken broth. Much less salt. Your own broth is the best.
