We really enjoyed this dinner! We basically followed the recipe except I forgot to add the frozen peas, but it was still really good. To save time cooking the chicken, we used inexpensive chicken leg quarters which I separated the legs and thighs and put a slit down the middle of the thighs to get the heat to the center quicker. It saves about a half hour of cooking time. I didn't want it too watery, so I put less water in to begin with, then added water as needed. I think 4-5 cups is a good amount. To thicken the stew a little, I used my potato masher and pressed it into the stew a few times to break up the potatoes a bit and thicken it. Oh, also, I cut the potatoes into cubes, smaller than the recipe called for. Then when it was almost done, I plopped the dumplings on top. The cooking time for the dumplings was very accurate. They came out perfect! Thanks, Elizabeth for this down home comfort food recipe that is not difficult to make. We will definately make this time and time again.
