I grew up eating Chicken and Dumplings, My Mama, Grandmothers and Aunts all made them. Often for a farm crew. over the years the recipe has been modified a little with each cook and I am no different. The dumplings that my family made were often little and sometimes doughy. I discovered a trick to making them fluffy in the middle and my family loves them. The trick is Don't stir... This is always a winter favorite and serves a large crowd. I come from a large family and this is easy to stretch. Also a church dinner favorite. Creamy Rich and GOOOD!!!
