    Just to add to my comment: I've looked over many recipes for Chicken and Dumplings, and the methods for cooking the dumplings all vary. Some say cook on low, some say cook on high. And the pot is either covered or uncovered. Help!

    I haven't tried THIS recipe before, but have tried making chicken and dumplings twice before using two different recipes. I had trouble both times with the dumplings falling apart. What's the secret to keeping their shape and cooking all the way through?

    This is a close recipe to what my Grand Ma used to make, She called it Pot Pie. Also wonderful with a beef roast.
