This isn't like any chicken and dumplings I've ever had, but it was just delicious! I made it exactly as posted, and wish I'd doubled it! I'll make my dumplings a little smaller next time, but otherwise I wouldn't change a thing! I plan on making this often. Thanks for sharing! Made for Zaar Stars.

This was very good, and so simple to put together! I did change the recipe up a little to go along with what I had on hand. I left out the carrot (we don't like them). I used one large bone-in, skin-on chicken breast that I cooked whole and then took out after the 30 minutes of cook time and shredded up and added back to the broth mixture. I increased the chicken broth to about 5 cups because I was afraid it would not cover my chicken completely otherwise, and I ended up having to add a little rice at the end to thicken it up. Also, I used whole milk instead of low-fat. This was just delicious. These are the thick, doughy type dumplings that my husband prefers, so that was nice as well. Thank you so much for sharing, I will definitely make this again!

What's not to like? This is easy and true comfort food that is perfect for two (no leftovers yah). Made as written and would like to try again with the addition of mushrooms. Thanks for the yummy supper.

I have to admit to initially being a little disappointed with this dish.It was really vegetables and chicken floating in chicken stock (and a lot of it!).I really couldn't deal with so much liquid,so used some cornflour mixed with some water to thicken it up.It worked,but not quite enough,so I stirred a little of the mashed potato, I was serving it with,into it.This thickened it up to a lovely consistency. The flavour of the dish was good (I also added some diced leek and some corn to the veg content),and we enjoyed a good warming meal. Thanks Duonyte.Made for PRMR.

This made the perfect amount for two! The only thing that I changed in any way was that I added 1/4 tsp of garlic powder to the dumpling mix and used breast meat. I only used 1/4 of a bay leaf but the ones I have are on the large side. Rich flavored and satisfying. Lovely winter meal.

This was a very nice recipe. I used one chicken thigh and one (14 oz.) can of chicken broth and found that to be plenty. I also added 3 oz of canned mushrooms that I had to use up. It was a nice, warming meal. Thanks for sharing!

This is a wonderful recipe. I cheated though.. I added in cooked meat that was leftover from roast chicken that I had to use up. And I added in a small potato and some mushrooms too. The dumplings turned out really fluffy! Thank you, duonyte, for sharing this lovely recipe, this is definitely a keeper. :)
