This is an old recipe, but very spicy and tasty. It came in a Family Circle magazine. My daughter passed this along to me. A great Southwestern dish.

We Love this's rich, spicy and hearty. The only difference, I used Jiffy cornbread mix. Thanks for the great new keeper!

Yummy! Really nice when the weather is cool, and a flavorful change from regular chicken and dumplings. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

I have the original recipe from Family Circle Magazine in my file. It calls for either 1-1/2 lbs. chicken breasts OR chicken thighs, skin and fat removed. I omit the salt and use low sodium chicken broth and no-salt tomato sauce to reduce the amount of salt in this recipe. The first time I made it I mixed the flour and water to thicken it, but I really think it is fine without thickening the broth. I sometimes omit the corn dumplings and serve it with corn muffins. A really declicious meal!
