    The bacon and potatoes in a chicken and dumplings dish was a new twist for me. I like the bacon addition; the potatoes not so much. For a low fat rendition of a typically high-fat recipe, I enjoyed this. The half-and-half and bacon bits gave the broth a richer taste and mouthfeel. I made as directed and my chicken got a little rubbery so perhaps it could be cooked separately and added at the end. As a previous reviewer noted, I needed more broth to have enough to cook the dumplings – about 2 cups or so. It was a quick fix and a great meal on a cold day. Thanks for posting!

    Very nice flavor combination in this dish. I had to cook this longer than stated to get the vegetables done. I also doubled the broth mixture for personal preference. I think next time I'll cook the chicken separate because there was some residual that was not eye appealing. But all in all a very good recipe. Thanks for sharing.
