I just love it when I try a recipe for the first time, and it turns out to be a winner. I made half a recipe, also. It will be great to have this simmering on the stove on a cold and snowy day. I did not find it to be very much work at all.
Thanks for posting it.
You are so right-put on your fat pants. WOW! was this great. I made half a recipe for the two of us and only had a little bit left over. I had roasted a chicken the day before so used one breast and one leg for the meat. Added a little half and half at the end as DH was late getting home. I'm sure we will have this one many times again. Loved the dumplings and all the flavors.
WOW! This is true comfort food at its best! The names says it all! This was just like I remembered my Great Grandmother's chicken and dumplings to be like. Thanks for posting! Made for Lets P-A-R-T-Y tag 2010.
Even though I'd made another chicken dish to take to some neighbors, I HAD to share this with them as well, 'cause IT IS SUCH AN AWSOME COMFORT FOOD, & it's amazing how far you can stretch 3 chicken breasts! VERY, VERY TASTY DISH, & a definite keeper of a recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current Pick-A-Chef]
