Reviews for Dutch Oven Chicken and Dumplings
"So, the dumplings sucked the broth right up. I tried to mix up some more broth to add it in. I think that if I make this again then I am going to have to add a lot more water (double or triple) or broth from the get go."
"Simple and really good. I make this all the time."
"I used to make this recipe quite frequently and recalled it being very good. I recently brought it back into rotation for family-together meals. One of my now-adult sons exclaimed on seeing it, "I remember this!" He left with the recipe."
