This recipe blew my family away! I used chicken broth instead of 10 cups of water. I also added peas, button mushrooms, & corn. It was like chicken pot pie with pillowey mounds of soft melt in your mouth dumplings. Definitely make on the weekend as it takes time to make this satisfying comfort food.

I loved the dumplings but husband likes a denser dumpling and think it needs more liquid

Amazing! I substituted biscuits with a flat, pot pie style noodle instead just for lower carb count.

i wanted to try this so bad i simply used what i had on hand. Overall, it was great but i used chicken wings ( not enough meat). I also wish i used more seasoning for the dumpling. I'm sure my next attempt will be perfect :)

Absolutely delicious! I added cremini mushrooms that I chopped in the food processor. It added a little meatiness to the gravy. Comfort food at its finest. Will definitely make again.

It turned out real good. I mostly used the recipe to thicken the soup and for the biscuits. Everyone liked it.

Really good. It took a little while to make, so I'll probably make it on a weekend.

Excellent. Added 5 cups chicken broth to sub for 10 cups water. Plus peas. First time making chicken and dumplings and it rocked everyone’s socks off! THANK YOU

My family loves this meal...I have made it 4 times in the last 2 months. Great home cooked meal!

Was ok, my husband absolutely loved it. One helpful tip would have been to specify what size Dutch oven the recipe needs for us amateur cooks.
Marie S. 20 Jul 2017
So delicious! I used boneless chicken and chicken broth.

Think I made my dumplings too big but it was delicious

Really good. Instead of water I used chicken stock, which made it so much more flavorful. Also, add asiago cheese to the dumplings. Absolutely delicious
