This is a great recipe for chicken and dumplings using whole pieces of chicken rather than just a stew. It can be served on plates for a great meal.

Let me start by saying I make a mean pan c&d myself, but i just threw out my recipe & made this my new & only recipe! I followed the recipe expect for 2 things, I dredged my chicken(thighs& legs) in season flour before browning and used an extra clove of garlic. My husband took two bites and started moaning with delight.I asked if you deserved 5 stars and he said 100 stars! Plus 20 min. after he ate this his blood pressure went from 138/88 to 114/70. I also made Nan's dumplings- also sensational. Thank you for posting this. Vicki
