I came up with this recipe to satisfy my craving for some homemade chicken and dumplings. It's quick and easy to throw together and smells amazing at the end of the day. Chicken will be tender and juicy and just fall of the bones. Be sure to remove the chicken bones before serving.

Nommy! Changes: half vegetable broth and half chicken broth; added 1/2 tsp each ground sage and dried thyme. Made extra biscuits, too!

I used regular chicken broth instead of reduced sodium and it was a little salty. I'll use reduced sodium next time. I also used diced chicken breast instead of bone-in chicken. Very good flavor! I will definitely make this again! Thanks for sharing :)
