rich chicken and dumpling casserole

a recipe by
Diane Atherton

This dish is rich in flavor and pretty sure to please most! I was inspired to add eggs and onion from the way my mother made her chicken and dumplings. She didn't always add them but when she did, I loved it the best. A side of steamed broccoli goes well with this dish.
