Sarah Carey says, "Sometimes I just need a chicken potpie. You know what I mean? But I don't always have time to make the read deal. Enter this every-bit-as-satisfying substitute: Chicken and Dumplings, ready in about 45 minutes. If you have a little less time, try a pasta variation (about 30 minutes); if you have a little more time, try the classic (about 1 hour). All are a clever way to use up leftover chicken.
