Top Review by Myrna in London

My mother made memorable chicken and dumplings. Unfortunately she never wrote the recipe down. I have searched for one that even remotely resembled hers. This recipe surpasses mom's at it's best. For once the chicken had flavour (I just love the addition of the poultry seasoning). The dumplings were fluffy and tender whereas mine in past had all the appeal of boiled wallpaper paste. I had to plead with my son to try this dish just once more...being a veteran of all my other failed attempts he was to say the least reluctant. He just loved them! Thank you Inez
