Chicken and Dumplings Recipe

What is your favorite comfort food? As the chill of fall fills the air, I love curling up in a blanket and eating my favorite comfort food: chicken and dumplings. When I was a little girl, I would beg my mom to cook dumplings for dinner. Now as an adult, I love carrying on the tradition of making chicken and dumplings for my own family.
