Quick Chicken and Dumplings (Peggy’s Restaurant way)

Chicken & Dumplings

None of our customers at Peggy’s Restaurant seemed to care that the dumplings were made with pasta dumplings. In fact we sold the heck out of those dumplings. On Fridays we had standing room only. I would not let anything that I prepared go out of that kitchen until it tasted JUST right to me. Of course, we won’t talk about the problem I had keeping my weight under control!!!!!!!. The pot I used held 12 chickens so you can imagine how much I prepared for the cafe. WHEW!!!!!! ~ Mama Peggy

My childhood has come flooding back through this site. Thank you all for sharing these treasured recipes with us. Just found you today and can’t wait to start preparing some of these meals. Between the chicken and dumplings and the chocolate pie recipes I am going to get a little chubby again. Who cares? Not me! God bless you all!
