These just don't appeal to me.I add a can of cream of chicken soup when these are done,it helps thicken and adds color.I always make my dumplings the old way and roll them out.I cut them in squares.Always good.

I use croissant rolls and they are wonderful It give it just slight sweet taste to it. If you ever try them you want use anything else.

As has already been said everyone has their own favorite chicken and dumplings recipes. Some believe it is just chicken and dumplings and nothing else. I grew up in New England but my maternal grandmother is from VA so we make ours the way she did. This recipe looks very much like the dumplings we make, like drop biscuits but when we drop the dough onto the hot chicken and broth, it does thicken the broth. Whatever way you make it ENJOY, its true comfort food.
