    Retro Kali's Note:

    This recipe came from a Martha Stewart magazine.The dumplings in this are unusual, with lemon zest, and cornmeal. I love them, but remember that the taste and texture of the dumplings is different from standard dumplings. I add more parmesan cheese to the mixture, but I will post it as it is in the recipe. I used the shallot the first time, but it is just fine without, or replaced with a minced onion. I cook the chicken first, but the recipe doesn't specify.

      OMG - those dumplings are the best I've tasted! The cornmeal gives them a bit of a different texture, but they're still light and fluffy! We can't get yellow lemons here, so I used lime zest. Absolutely delicious!!! Made this after seeing Mama Smurf's post on Spring PAC 2013. Now THIS is why I play the game! Thanks for posting!

      I made the dumplings sans cheese and they were still delightful in that soft, fluffy way we all love. YUM!
