My family loved this recipe!! I doubled the recipe and it still wasn't enough for my 8 and 10yo! Only change I made was adding a splash of heavy cream before I added the dumplings. So hearty and comforting!

Made the recipe as written except I doubled it. Will be much more stingy with the ground cloves, though. Their flavor can get overpowering in a hurry.

This recipe is EXCELLENT! I actually added 3 1/2 more cups of water though and it still turned out fantastic! It smelled great while cooking and while reheating the next day!

Really really good. I doubled it to make it for my family. Instead of this dumpling recipe, I used the reciped off of the baking mix box. It turned out great!!!

I followed the advice of the other reviewer and just used a bag of frozen stew vegetables, which had everything in them( potatoes, onion, carrots, etc.) Very fast and easy, and came out tasting good. Will make again!

This was an excellent dinner recipe! I baked the chicken first, and cut it into small pieces before adding to the dish. I also used a bag of stew vegetables to save time, and added my own potato. I added a bit of thyme as well. Overall a fantastic recipe I look forward to making again.
