This was great! I have been looking for a recipe like my mom's southern chicken and dumplings, and this is it! I used 3 chicken breasts with ribs instead of breasts, and boiled them with an onion wedge, rib of celery, 2 cups chopped carrots, and 1 tsp. salt for 30 minutes, then removed the onion and celery. Because the chicken is already cooked, I skipped step 2. I next added 4 more cups water (and another tsp. salt) because it seemed like too much chicken for the amount of broth (would do that again!). For the thickening, I used 1/3 cup flour and 1/2 cup milk (milk instead of water - makes it more creamy). I also added 1/2 tsp. poultry seasoning, and 1/4 tsp. pepper, as others suggested. I cooked the dumplings for 25 minutes total (lid off, so that it thickened); otherwise, they weren't done enough. I also threw in a cup of frozen peas, about 5 minutes before serving. Nice addition of color (and veggies). Great comfort food! Thanks for the recipe!
