Don’t be chicken…. Chicken and Dumplings

Chicken and Dumplings is a wonderful comfort food, and one that to be honest… I’ve been intimidated to make! I finally put all reservations aside and took the plunge! I looked at a variety of recipes and choose a recipe to cook Rachael Ray’s version which incorporated veggies into  the meal. I realize traditional Chicken and Dumplings are just what the title is. After I made this super easy and very tasty meal all I could do is laugh at how easy it was. Why was I so intimidated by making this amazing dumplings!?!??!
