    Loved everything but the dumplings. I doubled the broth as other comments suggest to do, and it was perfect! But the dumplings were so bitter!! I loved the amount of dill in them; they initially tasted wonderful, although the aftertaste was completely overbearing. And yes, I double- and triple-checked that I used the correct amount of baking powder (tsp, not tbl). Also, the next day the leftover dumplings were soggy.

      Perhaps you used baking powder that is not aluminum-free? Could that be it?

    Delicious, quick and easy! My kids love it, too. I use any vegetables and fresh herbs I have on hand (herbs de Provence + fennel rocks it), more broth and double the (GF) biscuits.

    Yum!! So good and pretty easy; great even on a work night. I tripled the amount of broth and was glad I did. It's a lot of carrots but I thought they lent a great natural sweetness to the dish.

    My daughter asked me to make chicken & dumplings and I found this recipe. Really easy to make. Maybe half the dill and add a little Better Than Bouillon at the end of cook. I give 5 stars. I dont like chicken and dumplings but I LOVE this!!!!

    Made this recipe but made the following changes: -Used fresh thyme - Added a couple ribs of celery -Added some aleppo pepper flakes for some heat (about 1 tsp) -Added a couple of cups of water before adding the dumplings. There wasn't really enough to simmer the dumplings at that point. The dish was really good. Because of the additional water I'd probably add some more flour to make a thicker gravy and double the dumplings in the future.

    I have made this recipe half a dozen times or more. It is EXCELLENT. MY family loves it! I DO, however, double the dumplings because we like them so much. Also, I use fresh thyme as I have it growing just outside my kitchen. Tonight I have leftover turkey from roasting a 22 lb turkey yesterday. I simmered all meat off bones and used the turkey broth it made rather than canned chicken broth. Its delicious! So many use canned biscuits or Bisquick. Uhhh WHY? These are so easy!

    I've had much better, and actually chicken and dumplings is pretty easy to begin with. I don't know why but Martha has an obsession with Thyme and carrots. Luckily, I did what my gut said and halved the Thyme and used only 2 carrots. Carrots are VERY sweet and 5 would have made it dessert. My mother used to say careful in adding too many. Also with the Thyme, 1/4 tsp. was perfect. This recipe lacked what I'm used to with a fricassee - on the dry side so I won't make again.
