This is Chicken & Dumplings the easy and delicious way. Traditional, southern, no-frills, and wonderful. Forget all the extras and treat yourself to what this dish was truly meant to be, both taste and work-wise. This recipe is a traditional dish from my partner, Julia's, family. There is very little that you can do to hurt this recipe. The most important thing to remember is to stir often once you begin to add dumplings so that they neither stick nor burn. Enjoy!
