Reviews for Quicker Chicken and Dumplings (speedier version)
"Delicious....added mushrooms and used homemade biscuit...will definitely make again."
"I had never made dumplings before and didn't mix them enough before dropping into the broth so I would recommend stirring just a little beyond "just moistened". My dumplings turned into awkward lumps instead of pretty dumplings, but even so, it was absolutely delicious!"
"Wonderful, the whole family loved it and that is saying something. However I did add frozen peas."
"This was easy and tasted good"
"I love this recipe, very close to the chicken and dumplings I used to make. I usually double the dumplings."
