Chicken 'n' Dumpling Soup

Tammy Raynes


It's freezing here in Louisiana right now. We've had record breaking snow days. So I've been busy going through my recipes and magazines for soup recipes.

Now it's not unusual for Louisiana to have cold weather. However, hang around a few minutes and that will change. Where else can you get FROSTBITE and SUNBURN in the same week? LOL

I found this particular recipe in a magazine and thought I would give it a try. And I want y'all to enjoy it too.
