GG's Chicken and Dumplings

This is my grandma's chicken and dumpling recipe. (My daughter called her GG for "Great Grandma") When I was little we frequently had this after church for Sunday dinner. It was my favorite,and I usually requested it! Everytime I make it I think of my grandma and miss her dearly!
