Reviews for Momma’s Turkey Stew with Dumplings
"Made with leftover turkey from Thanksgiving. Delicious. I did add more spices to knock it up a bit. Would make again, great use for extra chicken or turkey, and love the use of the crockpot."
"Made this yesterday exactly as directed. Hubby loved it and said it's a keeper."
"We really liked this- it was easy and very tasty!"
"With the addition of a few more herbs and increasing the poultry seasoning amount, this recipe is the one I use with both turkey and chicken for the basic stew. I like to make slick/flat dumplings though. Those fluffy dumplings tend to melt too readily."
"Simple and easy preparation. Instead of Turkey I used chicken leg quarters since I haven't done a Turkey yet. But, it will be a good recipe for later when I have the Turkey leftovers. As well, I don't have Bisquick on hand so I made easy scratch dumplings with Flour, Salt, Parsley, Butter and Milk."
"I make this dish all the time as it is so tasty. It is a staple in my house during the winter months. I don't make the biscuits though as I don't want the extra calories."
"Followed directions, very disappointing, will not make again."
"This was delicious, easy, and made the house smell wonderful while it cooked. Kids gave it 2 thumbs up!"
"I did not have turkey so I substituted chicken instead. My husband and I both loved it! It was hearty and full of flavor. I'm putting this on our list of favorites."
