Eat: Chicken and Dumplings

Now, this is one of those comfort food recipes that must, must, MUST be in your recipe book. It’s bordered on the chillier side here for the past few days and I got a request for chicken and dumplings. It’s something that I make so rarely, that it’s super special when I do make it.

Don’t worry. It’s super simple.

Here’s the deets:
