I have to tell you that I began my quest for a good Chicken and Dumpling recipe over 20 years ago - DH and I went to a restaurant near Carson City and that was their specialty. The dish was served in covered silver plates, the chicken off the bone and I swear the reason they covered them with lids was because the dumplings would have floated up off of the table without the weight! I fell in love!
Coming home I thought "I can do that!" and my first attempt would have been better titled "Chicken and Rocks"...after several attempts I found the recipe I posted. To this day it's the one dish my son requests when he comes home to visit and it's on DH's comfort food list!
