Well, I made the recipe like it said except I couldn't broil them; I don't have a broiler. So I just cooked them longer(they didn't get brown). The chicken broth really helped them. Actually, I tasted some that was left in the broth, and I liked it that way much better because it tasted like chicken and dumplings. So I probably will eat the rest in a bowl with the broth. I made this for "Cookbook Tag". Thanks for the recipe.
