This is how I remember the dumplins in Chicken & Dumplins! This is a great recipe especially on a cold winter/fall evening. I have never browned my chicken before cooking it for chicken and dumplings and I think it really made the difference. I added diced carrots, celery and Lawrey's seasoning salt to taste. And I have to admit, my DH likes his gravy heavy, so I did blend 1/4 cup flour in 1 1/2 cups of chicken broth. Thank you so much godsvip!
