I got this recipe off the 'Taste of Home' web site. I haven't tried it yet, but wanted to post it here for safe keeping, because it looks relatively easy to do, and I love chicken and dumplings. This is an easier version of what my mother used to make. I will update after I make it.

I made this recipe for dinner tonight it came out excellent. I did change the recipe a little bit, I used 4 cloves of garlic, corn instead of peas, and left out the celery, my family loved it. It was pretty simple to make but the prep took a bit longer then 20 minutes, and it is a little spicy. I will definitely be making it again.
