Easy Chicken & Drop Dumplings

Recipe by Douglas Poe

BIG tip: DO NOT STIR DUMPLINGS after dropping them into stock, all your dumplings will disintegrate. I learned this the hard way the first time I made dumplings

This was really good. I used a low sodium chicken broth for extra flavor due to the fac I have no vegies on hand. I'm also on home dialysis so, I have to watch my sodium & I didn't use anyother salt & one small can of biscuits & shut my eyes,hahaha. This is the second time I've made this & give it 5 stars. When you live alone & on a special diet, this is a good/healthy supper for all. The next time I make this in the future, I will use celery, carrotts.
