chicken and dumplings. She's from Ohio. I don't think they have chicken and dumplings in Ohio.
My first experience eating them was at a restaurant called Mrs. Winner's. The chicken and dumplings were pretty good. But the cinnamon rolls were even better. I've seen chicken and dumplings at Cracker Barrel but I never order it.
I guess I just don't really like chicken and dumplings.
So, when Ana of Sweet Almond Tree picked this week's recipe, I wasn't inclined to make it. But I figured it's not that far off from chicken noodle soup so I gave it a go. Guess what? I still don't like chicken and dumplings. Or shall I say dumplings. I don't like drop dumplings. Even with all the herby goodness they were still weird. Like eating a sponge. My boys didn't like them either.
The soup part of the recipe, on the other hand was yummy. And easy. Add a few more vegetables and some noodles and you've got yourself a decent chicken noodle soup. Bake some biscuits. Dinner.
