Great! Used regular stock instead of low-sodium and found it salty. Would definitely make again using low-sodium stock. Dumplings were divine!

This was such a great family dish! I have to admit i used canned biscuits for the dumplings... I am sure the homemade dumplings are much better. Thanks for the great recipe!

I’m making this recipe for the second time, and my GOODNESS is it delicious. My mom never made this growing up, but my husband’s mom did. So when he requested it I had no clue how to make it lol. Thanks for the easy to follow recipe, and it really was fantastic.

This is a savoury, delicious & easy recipe for beloved chicken & dumplings! It is perfectly satisfying & utterly enjoyable in every bite!

!The soup part is good but the dumplings are not. I did not like the corn meal at all. I prefer traditional dumplings. The cornmeal made them taste like cornbread with bread like texture instead of dumpling texture. Ick.
