    MizEmerilLagasse's Note:

    I had this about a week ago for my Fiance before he left on a Motorcycle trip with 2 of his friends. (Note, that I would have gone with them had it not been for work) asked him the day before he left what he wanted for supper before he left, and all he said he wanted was chicken and dumplings. So, I started up my famous chicken stock recipe, and started looking for dumpling recipes up here. I had know idea though, that I would find the best dumpling recipe I had ever tried. I would like to give recogition to Christine Bettiga for her dumpling recipe. I wrote to her and told her that I just had to use her recipe because the soup just wouldn't be the same without it. Thanks Christine!
