This is comfort food at its best. This recipe is easy to fix and the blended tastes of the chicken, veges, and drop dumplings are fantastic. I added a bit more broth to the mixture before putting it in the oven because mine seemed a bit too thick. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Made for Fall PAC 2008.

Delicious and really easy! I added some grated carrots for some extra color and completely eliminated the butter and sugar to lower the calories a little bit more. Excellent recipe! Thanks!
