This tasted good, but I had trouble with the recipe so I am not rating the recipe. I ended up adding more liquid to the pot as the dumplings started sticking. I finally ended up lifting them out out the pan and baking them to try to salvage dinner. I made gravy from additional chicken stock, there was no liquid left. I can see this recipe does work in the photo and hope others have a better experience.
