Just cooked up a super-giant batch of chicken and dumplings for a memorial gathering this weekend. The leftovers (Approximately 1-ish gallon from a 2.5 gallon container and a medium-sized crock pot) from said memorial were scarfed down by some of the night-shift nurses at the hospital where I work. My wife, Melanie a nurse at the forementioned hospital, already had a bit of dumplings from the private stash I saved for her Friday night. Apparently, nurses make quick work of utilizing dumplings for their primary purpose. Thus, there have been several requests, from both consumption events, for the recipe and I am obliged to share it with anyone who likes chicken and dumplings.
