This recipe has been in my family for years. My mother, who is of Czech descent, made this saucy chicken when I was a child. Now my daughters make it for their own families.

"I will definitely make this again... it was even better as left-overs. Next time, I'll probably skip on the dumplings and just make rice, but we loved it!"

"This is a superb recipe! Usually only like cooking with chicken breasts, but this recipe reminds me off the good ol' days...takes alot longer than 10 minutes in prep, dumplings were sooo easy. The gravy is sooo yummy!"
