    riffraff's Note:

    Don't tell me this sounds awful, I KNOW. I had the recipe for a year before someone convinced me to try it. These dumplings are way better then the canned bisquit kind. I guessed at the cook time.

      Chicken and Dumpling is one of those recipes that it seems everyones Grandma's or Mom's are always the best. My Mom recently confessed to me that this is they way she has been making them for the last 2 years, with tortillas. I could never tell the difference from the "usual" way. So, I tried your recipe Riff! They turned out perfect. I couldn't believe how good they were, and that I had made them! The less mess and effort makes this worth trying, and a recipe I will definatley make again and again.

      This is how my Nana, Mother and Aunt have always made them. Well... Nana rolled her own, but they were just like tortillas. Back in high school our friends would always come over for a big bowl when they heard my mom was making them. She actually had to make triple batches because they were so popular. She does add a little garlic powder, poultry seasoning and parsley. I do that and also add cracked black pepper and a tiny bit of milk at the end. For some reason I like mine just a touch creamier than hers. But either way is great.
