I had just dressed out an old rooster and thought that it would be tough as shoe leather but, not so! This sauce was so tasty and we liked the idea of thickening the sauce. Had so much that I have another meal of it frozen. We loved the steamed dumplings as mine usually are soggy when I drop them in the liquid to cook. These were light and nice and soft but I will need to add a bit more salt for our taste. I found the flour and butter a little difficult to incorporate in the liquid; it tended to lump. Next time I will add a little liquid to it before putting it into the pot. But we will definitely have this meal again!

My wife insisted I find a good Chicken and Dumplings recipe and this is the one I chose. The dumplings were easy to make and the chicken and noodles was delicious!

This recipe is incredible! I was leery of making my own dumplings, but this steam method is super easy. I cooked the chicken in the crock pot all day. The entire meal melted in our mouths. Definitely a keeper!

I make chicken and dumplings the same way except I add a can of cream of chicken soup.I skip step number 6 because it is not needed when using the soup. You really can taste the extra flavor it adds.Once I used a can of cream of celery soup instead and it was great too.

It is a snowy day and I was up to cooking a comfort meal and this definitely filled the bill. And the dumplings came out so fluffy, will try these again.

As the Mom of Quadruplets +1, I'm always looking for things to make in quantities for the masses that keep everyone full until the next meal! This was an awesome recipe. I used some seasoning salt and doubled the recipe. I've never made chicken and dumplings before and this was GREAT! Very kid and husband friendly!
