    I was so happy to find a chicken and dumplings recipe that uses strip dough. To me this is more southern and to my liking versus raised. Thanks.

    This is the recipe I've been looking for. When my Grandmother passed , My Mother got her dumpling recipe and lost it ( a travesty ). This is just how she made hers, a plump non laying hen and all. Thank-you soooo much!!!
