This recipe is truely amazing!! I made it tonight and followed the directions mostly, including the dumplings. The only thing I changed was that I did not add the noodles for the whole 25 min. I added them when I added the dumplings.(for 10 min.) Speaking of dumplings I swore them off for life about 6 months ago... but I caved when I read the reviews. They were perfect. I will always refer to this dumpling recipe!! This dish is yummy!!!!
