Chicken Fricassee With Dumplings

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Shirl

I serve this with rice as I don't eat the dumplings, hubby gets those. I also double the vegies, milk, soup, thyme and bay leaf as I like lots of gravy. Very nice hot meal for a cold rainy night.

4 stars! A good recipe, however in search of a recipe better than the one I grew up on. This was not it. However this recipe will not dissapoint. Good ol' fashion comfort food. Great served with some southern sweet tea.
