  1. My mother made memorable chicken and dumplings. Unfortunately she never wrote the recipe down. I have searched for one that even remotely resembled hers. This recipe surpasses mom's at it's best. For once the chicken had flavour (I just love the addition of the poultry seasoning). The dumplings were fluffy and tender whereas mine in past had all the appeal of boiled wallpaper paste. I had to plead with my son to try this dish just once more...being a veteran of all my other failed attempts he was to say the least reluctant. He just loved them! Thank you Inez
  2. This was so good! Truly comfort food as I had hoped. I added an extra carrot and a can of chicken broth to this recipe. I also made cornbread to go along with the meal. I loved it and felt proud to serve this to my husband. He enjoyed it very much. Thanks, this is a keeper for me!
  3. This was made for dinner last night and loved by all. The only thing I did differently was to use Bisquick for the dumplings, but everything else was the same. Loved it. Thanks for brining back memories of my Grandmother with this one!
  4. Great recipe! When making the dumplings, always cook them 10 minutes with the cover off, then 10 minutes with the cover on. Mine come out nice and fluffy.
  5. Thank you....tried it and it was great. Jaydensmommy22...Did you just replace the flour with Bisquick..same amount I mean? Thank you!


  1. This is a fabulous recipe!! I used chicken broth instead of the bouillon cubes (4 cups water and 2 cups broth) and it still tasted awesome! We ate all the leftovers too. Super!!!!!!
  2. I thought I'd rated this months ago. I'd give it a 10 if I could. I've used ground turkey instead of the chicken, and subd. thin cut flour tortillas for the dumplings at diff. times. All are really yummy.


After DH and I moved away from the farm, and to the city...I haven't done as much cooking and very little canning. But I do come to Zaar and look for new recipes once in a while. I'm still cooking Zaar!! I like to play at Facebook, with my family and friends. A lot of my Zaar friends are there!! Yay! It's a good way to keep in touch. We travel more. We're looking at the European trips now. Hope to go in the springtime. I really want to see London, I think I lived there in a past life, I've been obsessed with it since I was 10 years old!!
