My husband gave me the Southern Living Community Cook Book for my birthday which had this recipe in it but I had to use this recipe onlibe because the book was actually missing some steps in the recipe. I really enjoyed making this but since I was making this with what I have I pretty much had to just season with lots of salt, pepper and butter. I didn't have any of the veggies except the onion so I replaced some of the water with vegetable broth. I actually prefer my broth thick so I added one can of cream of chicken and then made my own with half the broth and some flour. This made it creamy and delicious! Since there's only the two of us, this will last us a long while. Yay!
Not quite sure how to rate this one. Everyone in the family thought the flavor was just right, which is an accomplishment. But everyone was also surprised that the broth was so thin.
This had good flavor, but for some reason, my dumplings dissolved in the broth during about the last 10 minutes of simmering. Not sure why - should I have worked the dough more? Everything looked good until I raised the lid during the last 10 minutes, and they were disintegrating! Very frustrating.
This was a very good recipe. It wasn't hard to make. It was quite easy and my whole family loved it. I enjoyed it as well. This will definitely be put in my recipe box.
This was great! It was a little bland though so I had to jazz it up. When boiling the chicken, I added a bay leaf, some chopped celery and carrots, onion salt and celery salt. I used low-sodium chicken bouillon cubes (they were small cubes so I used three). The dumplings were easy and delicious. I'm definitely going to make it again!
Absolutely a classic! Am getting ready to make it for a houseful tomorrow. Perfect cold weather recipe that will feed a crowd. I agree to add the carrots and celery...makes it seem a tad more healthy!
was always afraid to try my hand at chicken and dumplings. . .this made it a reasonable accomplishment! It was so good!! I did add a bit more pepper and poultry seasoning toward the end! Anyone who is a bit fearful, it wasn't so hard after all!!
Two words: OH YUM!
This was very good. I only used half the dough and froze the other half for later. My husband loved it. This is a new favorite for us. I did add some chopped celery and carrots. I will probably use it to make chicken soup too.
I made this for supper last night and my family LOVED it. However, I used only half the dough (as it made so much) but I will use a little more next time. I also used all butter instead of shortening (so good!) The seasonings were delicious too, and I think next time I'll add a little more pepper. I also intend to use this as my basic chicken soup recipe now, and would like to try this for chicken noodle soup. This is DEFINITELY a do again!
Good recipe - followed direction/ingredients with the exception of using dried Amish pot pie squares. Recipe needed more seasonings - added more poultry seasoning and salt. Also added some flour and milk mixture to thicken up the broth to make it more like a gravy. Everyone in the house enjoyed the recipe - wonderful cold weather meal!
This is truly a classic and has already become a regular in our house. This issue is not a month old yet, and this is the second time I have made it! I didn't have a whole chicken and used 4 split boneless chicken breasts instead and it couldn't have been better! My daughter and daugher-in-law have the same issue and are going to make it again at home. Yummy!
