I cut this recipe in half & the only thing I changed was to leave the potatoes unpeeled as we like 'em that way! Diced them small, though, so there were no large pieces of the peel! Loved the dumplings & the chicken as they made for such a comforting, satisfying meal, & the flavor of the bacon made it especially so! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

We loved this recipe! I cut the whole thing in half because there are only 3 of us and I still had leftovers for the next day. Very good and I liked the ease of the recipe. Thanks! Made for Photo Tag.

Simple, easy and very tasty! The bacon is wonderful in this and its flavor gets into every part of the recipe. I only used 1 and a half potatoes and added another cup of chicken stock. This was my first attempt at drop dumplings so I hope they're supposed to be fluffy because mine were. ;) Thanks for sharing this great recipe, 2Bleu. Loved it!
