Homemade Chicken & Dumplings ~ just like Grandma & Cracker Barrel make!

Homemade Chicken & Dumplings ~ Honestly one of the easiest and most satisfying homestyle meals I've ever made.  Why has it taken me so long to discover this classic recipe?  The traditional 'noodle-style' dumplings are so different from the biscuit dumplings I normally make.  Two versions of the same meal & both outstanding!

I found this amazing sounding recipe for making old fashioned ~ Homemade Chicken & Dumplings.  It said it was easy to make, quick to get to the dinner table & that it tastes like the Cracker Barrel version.  Ooooo, that got my attention.  I just love Cracker Barrel's Chicken & Dumplings!

I made it for our dinner & was truly impressed, as was my entire family.  Using leftover chicken makes this recipe so easy.  Not much to it ~ flour, broth, cooked chicken & a couple of spoonfuls of other on-hand pantry ingredients.  Even though the ingredient list is small, the flavor is BIG & so very comforting!  The recipe is simple to follow, quick to get to the dinner table & is just as good (if not better) than the one I've ordered countless times at my favorite 'country-style' restaurant.  We demolished the first batch I made and I've had requests to make it again ~ soon, very, very soon.  It was THAT good.

So, if you're looking for a meal that tastes like ~ something your grandma might make... that is comforting & makes you think of simpler times, when food wasn't fancy ~ just rustic, flavorful & perfect for large or small gatherings... just everyone sitting around the kitchen table, enjoying each others company... or when you'd like to order chicken & dumplings in your favorite 'country-style' restaurant, but want to make it cheaper at home, using leftover chicken & few other ingredients... or maybe even for a potluck ~ consider giving this recipe a try.  I think you'll be glad you did.  :)

P.S. ~ Since I'm posting this after Thanksgiving, I was thinking this might be a perfect way to use up some of the leftover turkey we all have hanging around the fridge.  Same meal / preparation, just a different type of bird...  I think I'll be making this again, just turning it into ~ Homemade Turkey & Dumplings ~ the next time around.  Maybe throw in a few frozen peas/carrots. Or maybe not.  Depends on my mood. : )
