This is the very best dumplings you will ever have, or pretty darn close. These are soooo good, and better on a cold day. Please let me know how you like it.

I did not use any wine. I did however find cream of chicken AND mushroom soup by Campbell (I'd never seen that before) so I used two cans of that. I also used leeks and a bag of small frozen pearl onions and added fresh mushrooms. Unforunately I did not follow the instructions very well so the dumplings turned out kind of gummy ( I added everything in and then the dumplings so they had no room to cook). So I used one can for dumplings and just used the second can as biscuits. Very lovely and tasty chicken and dumplings (I used 10 skinless boneless thighs and three skinless boneless breasts).WONDERFUL FLAVOR in spite of my errors I will be making this one again. Thanks!

I really liked this recipe. I am not a chicken and dumpling expert. I have had it only a few times. This was easy, tasty and made a huge pot of food! I did not add the wine and I boiled the chicken with two bouillon cubes. Added pepper but otherwise followed directions exactly. Was very easy. Thanks for the new staple recipe for our house!
