Reviews for Easy Chicken and Dumplings
"Excellent!! My husband loved it and he is a picky eater. I added basil and a bay leaf for extra flavor. I will definitely make it again, soon!!"
"Nothing quite as good as C&D on a cold night in my opinion. Reading the recipe I was really hoping it would be something that would spur a need to make them in a month or two.My taste buds and sense of smell are not what they used to be. I have horrible allergies/asthma. I know that when I cook now I have to do a lot more seasoning so I can have any flavors at all. Unfortunately for me I can't see using an 1/8 t pepper (ever) in any recipe or 1/2 t poultry seasoning either. Still&all appreciate you posting recipe, I'm sure it's very good."
"Very good recipe, added rosemary and a bay leaf for more flavor. I also added a 1/4 cup low fat shredded cheddar cheese to biscuit mix. Yum!Family loved this and will definitely make again!"

"This was very easy and very tasty. I had always used biscuits cut in fourths for dumplings . These were much better . Followed recipe except didn't add carrots ( personal preference)"
