Southern Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: May 16, 2012
This my first attempt at making chicken n' dumplings and it was FANTASTIC! To start, I had to pour about 5 cups of water in the pot when I first started cooking the chicken breasts (I used 2) to make sure there was enough liquid to cover them. Therefore,when the recipe asks for additional water when you start to cook the dumplings, I didn't add anymore water. After 20 minutes of simmering the shredded chicken and dumplings, my pot looked like soup. I thought something was wrong so I just let it simmer for about an hour total. A lot of the water cooked down. After simmering for an hour, I turned the stove off and just let the pot sit for about another 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. In the end, the chicken and dumplings thickened up just right and was no longer soupy. Perfect!
