What is more delicious for a fall dinner than Chicken and Dumplings?  The weather has gotten really cool here in Alabama.  Since it is one of my daughter's favorites meals, I decided today would be a perfect day to make it.  The trick to making good dumplings is to not overwork the dough.  These are drop style but you could flour a work surface and roll them and cut them out.

Every time I make dumplings, I think of my sweet precious mother.  She was an excellent cook but she could not make dumplings.  Once, she made some that were "as hard as golf balls" as she used to say laughing.  The poor dogs would not even eat them.  These were so good we didn't have any leftover.  We did have company so it's not like we ate them all.  Momma would be proud.  I sure wish she was here to eat some with us.
