MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 29, 2013

"Definitely needed some seasoning. Remember to turn down the temperature when simmering your dumplings even though the recipe doesn't say to. This only made three healthy servings. Will make this again but double the amount of vegetables and soup/milk."

MY REVIEW

"Family loved this, but I'll add salt and pepper next time and maybe another can of soup."

"Great base for a quick chicken and dumplings! It did need salt and pepper and I will add a chicken bouillon cube next time."

MY REVIEW

"This recipe is great for a quick semi home made meal. It had very good flavor and the dumplings turned out fluffy and flavorful as well."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 21, 2011

"I actually sauteed chopped up carrots and celery in olive oil and then added raw chopped chicken, chopped broccoli and cooked that before adding the other ingredients. I know that kind of defeats the purpose of "quicker", but it was worth it. This was excellent and definitely a keeper. I can't wait to make it again."
