This dish was a lot of work, but well worth it! Made as directed - found that the dumplings fell apart even though I added them very carfully to the broth. Also the dumplings seemed bland - perhaps adding some herbs to them would give them some punch. Flavors were fabulous, even my vegetarian daughter wanted me to make the meat larger so she could pick it out and eat the rest! Was left with approx 5 cups of homemade chicken stock to freeze and use later - an extra bonus!!
Family loved it. Great for a cold night. Didn't have fresh buttermilk so I used 1% milk and the dumplings were fine.
Everytime I make this, my family has second or thirds. I just made it the other day with a 10 year old who is VERY picky and he had three helpings!!!!
I'm all about making my own stock so this was right up my alley! My picky fiancé was hooked after the first bite Nd he went back for seconds. This was my first time making Chicken and Dumplings, I've always associated it w my childhood and my grandmother. This was absolutely perfect! The only changes I made were using whole wheat flour and adding cumin to the stock (I always do). Will be making this again in the coming weeks.
Great flavors, a little time consuming, but so worth it. I broiled my dumplings at the end and love how that turned out. Read the full review at http://www.dishoverdinner.com/2013/10/rockcroc-chicken-and-dumplings.html
Taste was good, but everyone was trying to find the dumplings; by the time it finished simmering, the dumplings almost disappeared! Will definately make dumplings bigger or add more next time around.
Fabulous flavor - great on a chilly day. I cheated on this recipe - instead of making this from scratch, I bought a rotisserie chicken and good chicken stock at the store. I ended up following the recipe from that point on and it came out perfect. Will be making this again for sure.
Very layered taste ....delicious
