This is very close to my Chicken Stew with my Grammie Bea's Dumplings, that us Northerners have been eating for as long as the Indians had feathers in their hair. This is NOT the Southern way for Chicken and Dumplings. The Southerners make these thick pasta like noodles that have a rubbery and slimy texture that I can't get past, so I was glad to see this posted. Don't mistake these for the other kind of dumplings... This is the Northern Way!

An excellent way to spend the afternoon! I followed the recipe as written except for omitting the bouillon cubes, using fresh thyme, sage, and roasted garlic cloves. I also threw in a couple of potatoes, we're mad for potatoes here. This is not a difficult recipe, and if you have other tasks to complete in the kitchen, it's well worth the time involved. (Great dumplings!) Thanks again Sharon!

This recipe had great flavor, but I couldn't get a thick gravy out of it - it was more like chicken soup (which is still good) with dumplings. Very labor intensive (I started from the beginning) so I don't think I would make this very often. I loved the green onions in the dumplings - the dumplings were very good. I made exactly as directed. Made for Please Review My Recipe Tag Game 1/19/09 - NELady.

If I thought Tim McGraw would come to my house for dinner, I'd invite him for this meal! What a great one it is too. Yummy!! Thank you!

This is not the recipe that was done by Tim and Faith on Oprah, his much much simpler and he does the flat dumplings. If you do a search for Tim McGraw's Chicken and Dumplings you will get his recipe. Slick dumplings are not slimy and not like pasta. They are basically a biscuit dough cut into squares and cooked in the broth for 10-25 minutes only.
