I love chicken & dumplings! It's one of my favorite meals. Have you ever added a couple of boiled eggs? I was weary at first but I promise it makes the meal even more delicious!
Kimberly Johnson
What?! That sounds scary to me but right up my husband's alley. LOL. Maybe I'll give it a try.

You won’t regret it! When my friends have babies or surgery I like to bring meals and I always used to default to lasagna or baked spaghetti - now it’s not an option because they specifically request chicken & dumplings. 😁
