This was my first time ever making chicken and dumplings. My DH is pretty familiar with what they should taste like, so I let him rate them. I used 4 chicken breasts, but kept the rest of the ingredients the same. Next time I will half the dumpling mixture. I made the dumplings too big, so I had to take the chicken out after 15 minutes and cook the dumplings for another 5 minutes. This was so easy to make! Thanks so much!
