    Renate's Note:

    A nice change from traditional chicken and dumplings. A little more work, but worth the effort. Can easily be increased to accomodate more.

      This recipe has potential in my opinion. The dumplings were very good, cooked in homemade chicken broth. The Chicken mixture needs some "STUFF". I doubled the sauce because this made a lot of dumplings. I add some carrots, celery and onions that were saute in a little butter as well as some red pepper flakes to kick it up a little. I added the homemade broth in place of the water which added a nice rich flavor. I left out the pimiento, just didn't seem right in this one. This is well worth dinking around with. I liked the oven bake time, it seemed to take a lot of the boiling gunk off the dumplings. All in all a very worthy recipe.
