    I have made this recipe numerous times although I add garlic and bay leaves to my stock. I love these noodles. I have made it with the cream and the boiled eggs but find it is fine with out. My children also love the noodles as do it. I add some garlic seasoning to the dough. This is probably the best recipe I have found from Martha stewart. I just loved those dumplings!

    Delicious recipe...I've never heard of putting boiled eggs in chicken and dumplings, but tastes great. I live in the Atlanta area and his restaurant, Watershed, in Decatur is excellent and I try to eat there as often as possible. I strongly recommend his cookbook The Gift of Southern Cooking by Edna Lewis and Scott Peacock. It's full of great southern style foods and I use it ALL the time.

      I use their recipe for Sweet Potatoe Souffle every Thanksgiving. Best one I have ever tried! Probably why I am always tasked with making it!

      After I moved here from the Midwest, I also saw Hard-boiled eggs in turkey dressing. So excited to have another recipe by Scott Peacock! He cooked & lived with an elderly chef, Edna Lewis, who was the guru of old-fashioned southern food. This recipe has to be beyond good!

    I am so happy to finally find someone else who puts hard boiled eggs in their chicken & dumplings! My Granny always did, but I've never met anyone else who'd even heard of adding eggs. This recipe made my day (and last night's supper!).

    I made this recipe for Easter Sunday, the sauce was wonderful, but my dumplings were awful. I think I must have rolled them out to thin. I'm normally a pretty good cook but this time I made a big mess. HELP!

    It was good. I added rice and omitted the eggs. Also, when I made the stock I added 3 palms of Old Bay and 3 palms of salt once I removed the chicken. The recipe given for stock wasn't flavorful enough.

    I missed seeing "his cookbook" while watching Martha and Scott fix his grandmother's chicken and dumplings. I was so wowed when I came out here to get the recipe and then realized I own his cookbook. The cookbook is awesome.

    We never called these dumplings, my grandmother called these Sliders. It is a great reciepe.Best comfort food there is. My dad did a version of this he called hawaiian chicken - the eggs add drained tidbits or crushed pineapple and green pepper and a little brown sugar
