    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

    Well folks, if I have to break my Suzanne Somers way of eating it would be for this "chicken n Dumplings" I love dumplings. Mother used to make it onece in a while and I would mostly eat the dumplings alone. She did not leave the recipe, so I'm anxious to try this one. Thanks Martha

    FYI: growing up in the south.....many old fashiion cooks added a boiled egg to chicken and dumplings.....same with giblet gravy. Anna MC

    The Native American's from Robeson County, North Carolina know as the Lumbee Tribe have been making a version of this for years. Instead of the cream i use Campbells cream of chicken broth mixed with the chicken stock sometimes we use just a little yellow food color for a better appearance. Jawanna Graham
