Loved this. Easy comfort food. Great way to use up leftover chicken or turkey.

This was unexpectedly delicious! I used pan-fried chicken breast strips and cooked them first in the pan before anything else. Everything reheated well for lunch the next day.

Fantastic recipe, quick and easy. Tortillas taste just like dumplings, but don't let them cook too long. Also heats up well for lunch. definitely will cook again soon.

Tortilla strips were a surprisingly good substitute for a quick and easy meal.

This name is deceiving. It should be Quick Chicken and Tortilla Strips. My kids love dumplings and would never accept tortilla strips as a substitute. I would, but am upset with the false name of the recipe.
