    Thank you for posting this recipe! I've been making this dish for over 30 years, but lost the exact recipe a long time ago. It is so easy and delicious!! I always make this for friends and family when they're in need of comfort food. It never fails to impress with the light herb dumplings. I've always deglazed the pan with a little white wine, added chunks of carrots, and use Cream of Mushroom soup instead...so good!!

    Excellent, delicious, and easy. Makes this a great dish. Had it tonight with DD and SIL and nothing but raves. I used boneless chicken thighs. We will be making this again and soon. Made for 2011 Football Pool.

    Cjay, I got the same recipe from the same little booklet many years ago. It is a really good dish. The dumplings are light and airy, the chicken moist and delicious. I was stunned by the calorie count, but you must consider the cup of Bisquick used in the coating isn't all in the final product. Still not a diet friendly dish, but an awfully good one. Thanks for posting. This way when we lose that little booklet (and we will), it will be right here safe and sound.

    Your recipe was great! This was our Christmas Eve Dinner! Like most people, I tweak with my own favorite spices, but followed your recipe. I was a little concerned about mine having enough flavor, as I use boneless, skinless chicken tenders, and can't use salt, so I amped up with herbs. Your cooking times were extremely helpful! My husband loved it, too. This recipe is a keeper.
