This was great I made it last year and now we are making it again for a hearty Christmas dinner. My boyfriend who is a big meat eater loves it. And even requested it for dinner. One thing we noticed last time we made it was that we had to add more water. We now realize it may have been due to the fact that we used condensed cream of mushromm soup. And the dumplings were a little dense so we are adding a little more liquid. But overall the taste is spot on!! Oh its true with the imatation chik'n nuggets the breading falls and thickens the sauce
Wonderful flavor! I did use the Chin'n Veat (viggie "chicken" nuggets). The coating came off the nuggets which thickened the broth. Next time, I will use 5 cups of broth. I used 1 tsp herbes de provence and 1 clove garlic, minced and ommitted the kale and red chilies. The dumplings were only so-so... they were a little dense for my taste. This is a very hearty, flavorful kinda-chicken-and-dumplings. I will definitely make this again, and again.
