READY IN: 2hrs 20mins
Recipe by riffraff

Don't tell me this sounds awful, I KNOW. I had the recipe for a year before someone convinced me to try it. These dumplings are way better then the canned bisquit kind. I guessed at the cook time.

Chicken and Dumpling is one of those recipes that it seems everyones Grandma's or Mom's are always the best. My Mom recently confessed to me that this is they way she has been making them for the last 2 years, with tortillas. I could never tell the difference from the "usual" way. So, I tried your recipe Riff! They turned out perfect. I couldn't believe how good they were, and that I had made them! The less mess and effort makes this worth trying, and a recipe I will definatley make again and again.
