Nothing says lovin’ like Chicken and Dumplings. I don’t know that anything screams comfort more than this. Except for maybe chicken noodle soup. But it always comes back to the chicken, don’t it? Many of you grew up on this style of Chicken and Dumplings. It is the most basic, simple, but tummy-lovin’ stuff you ever did put in your mouth. The ingredients are simple; chicken, chicken stock, and a simple dumplin’ dough. That’s it.
Sorta like Cracker Barrel
