    Delicious used Celery salt, onion powder, minced garlic, dried parsley, thyme and garlic powder to season dish itself! Added spinach instead of celery. *** Make dumplings without thyme-weird flavor my daughter says!

    This is such a comfort food!! I made it for the second time now and my husband said it was the best chicken and dumplings he ever had!😁 I prefer my broth a bit thicker so I added 2 more tablespoons of flour...
    Very easy to make and good. I added mushroom!

    Excellent. Needs a good bit of salt and pepper to get that deep savory flavor from the stock. will definitely add this to the rotation.

    Easy to make and flavorful. I didn’t have thyme so I used Italian seasoning instead. Turned out really well

    Ah- Mazing! We doubled the recipe for our family of 6 and only had about 2 servings left over. the kids LOVED it and asked if I would make it again soon! I found the trick to perfect dumplings is not to touch them for 15 to 20 min with the lid on but vented and on low simmer. So good!
    Was So tasty! Will be making it again soon.

    Amazing. Super simple and easy to follow. Used rotisserie chicken and store-bought broth. Will become a regular staple in my home for fall.
