Delicious stew! Only made half a recipe and we still have leftover even though DH had three helpings. Used one breast and added some leftover thigh meat from a roasted chicken at the end.

These dumplings are great, I sifted the flour and they came out nice and fluffy.

This is a delicious chicken stew recipe. The sour cream and thyme really enhance the flavor of the dumplings. Made for PRMR.
