This was a easy and tastey meal. I served it with egg noodles. It went over well. from my 7 month old to my 35 yr old. (lol) ate it the next day for lunch as well. I omitted the cream of chicken, did not have it I replaced it with cream of celery. I also chaged the vegtables.. I just 1 can of mixed vegies.Instead of water I used chicken broth. It helped "up" the chcken taste since I didnt use cream of chicken. It was great! thanks a bunch!

Another delicious dinner , thanks Axe!! Very good chicken stew and easy enough to do. I used a whole fowl I had in the freezer. Had to use other veggies, no peas or carrots in so I used frozen mixed veggies and some lima beans, worked out great! Also added two diced potatoes instead of the dumplings. Lovely, tasty stew and it made lots too, some for supper and some for the freezer, love having stuff like this in the freezer. Thanks for posting!
