      This is the real thing! Thanks for bringing back memories. I've looked quite a while for a chicken 'n' dumplings recipe that doesn't use a can of cream soup. I'm not sure if it is a myth or not, but according to my grandma you should never open the lid of the pot until the dumplings are done because or the won't be fluffy. I think this is because the steam cooks them (if it is true at all...) You never know!
