Chicken and dumplings is one of my favorite dishes that my mother makes. The light and pillowy dumplings are the perfect partner to homemade chicken soup. This recipe starts with the stock from scratch. I prefer homemade stock because it's richer and has a better flavor. Of course if you are in a pinch, boxed stock will do just fine (try to get low-sodium). This comforting dish can be served at any time of the year.
