Does anyone have a good recipe for chicken and dumplings? When our family occasionally goes to a Cracker Barrel we always order their chicken and dumplings. My whole family actually likes the same meal (amazing)!!! Anyway, I can't seem to find a good recipe for it. Any suggestions would be a great help.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank You!!!! I have asked them several times if they had the receipe in one of their books or whether they would just give it out. They always said NO. You made my day. I think I'll make it for Valentines Day dinner. it will be nice to have everyone at the table at once.

Don't throw out the carrots, they are delicious. I also prefer to skim off the foamy stuff while it is cooking. I usually put the chicken in the water once it starts boiling, I add the remaining ingredients after I skim the foam.

If you want it be even better, after the chicken is cooked, take it out and let it cool some. Then take the meat off the bones and put the bones back in the stock and simmer for several hours. Strain out the stuff you don't want and put the chicken back in and the veggies or add some new ones, and then proceed as the recipe says to make the dumplings. The broth needs to cook down to about half the size it was, and then it will have a very nice flavor. Found this in some old cookbook a few years ago, and if you have the time, it is well worth doing!
