Chicken and Dumplings
The homemade flat dumplings in this stew are like a thick noodle in texture. If you prefer the fluffy biscuit-style dumplings, you can use store-bought biscuit mix. Prepare the mix for dumplings, drop them by heaping tablespoons into the pot, and cook as directed in the recipe. Be sure to gently stir dumplings to avoid breaking them up.
