This recipe for Grandma’s Chicken & Dumplings is perfect for this time of year. Chicken and Dumplings are comfort food at it’s finest. We’re putting all of the decorations away from Christmas and warming up with a bowl of this yummy soup. If you want a little kick, my husband adds a bit of Chile Verde sauce to his Chicken & Dumplings and loves it! Enjoy!
