This is a great harvest time meal, when my husband is out in the field. The broth is to die for!! But I wanted a little more color in the finished dish, so I added a handful of baby carrots to the broth. After I had the dumplings cooking in the broth, I took time to read the other review. I find out the Nikki Kate and I are on the same thought waves when it comes to this recipe. I also found the dough to be sticky and dropped by the spoonfuls into the kettle. I may cut back on the amount of chicken, instead of 4 pound of chicken breast, I'll try 3 pounds. I'll be making this again, thank you for posting. Made after I adopted Mama Sweet Rolls for 2011 Fall PAC
This was a very good meal, very fulling. The dumplins, I was not going to try to roll out!! They were very sticky, I could have added more flour but choice not to. I made the dumplins the way my mother and grandmother made them. I just dropped them into the stock by the spoonful (following this recipe of course)!! There was a lot of chicken that went back into the pot. It was still very good. My family enjoyed this one. Next time I may add a few veggie to the pot!! Great recipe!
