Chicken and Dumplings

This is probably going to sound really silly, but I never tried Chicken and Dumplings until I was about 22 years old. My mom never made it. We had lots of homemade chicken noodle soup, but never chicken and dumplings. I think they are very much alike so if you have a chicken soup recipe you love, it's very easy to leave out the noodles and add dumplings. My story for this goes back about 10 years. I was at work one day, talking to my boss about food. She told me about her favorite cold-weather comfort food, chicken and dumplings. So I had a total lightbulb moment and tried it myself. I started out like I was making chicken soup, made a few alterations, and ended up with a happy combination. You may have noticed from the recipe index that I don't have much for chicken recipes. My dear hubby is not crazy for chicken. This is one of the few ways he will actually eat chicken and like it. Blame him for the chicken recipe shortage. (wink wink, love you sweetheart) Ingredien
