"Good"

"This is absolutely delicious. I never had luck making chicken and dumplings and gave up a long time ago. I decided to try once again. The dumplings turned out perfect. I left them cook 20 minutes to be on the safe side like some of the others suggested. So glad I did since any time I did make dumplings they were always full of doe in the middle. Husband says I have to make this again, which I definitely will. I also added onions because we are big onion fans. Excellent Recipe and is great in a time cruncher. Thanks for posting"

"I was in a time crunch last night and remembered I had printed this recipe out, and was glad I did.

I am a sucker for biscuits and that was why I wanted something super fast, easy and delish
Another thing you could do to make it even faster is use frozen biscuits.
Very nice recipe, will be making this again."
