"I have tried to make chicken and dumplings before and failed miserably. When I saw this recipe, it looked so easy, I thought I would give it a try tonight. It came out wonderfully! I took the advice of some of the previous reviewers and I did sweat a diced onion in the pot before adding the rest of the ingredients. I also substituted chicken broth for milk when mixing the bisquick mix and used cream of chicken, b/c I did not have the cream of chicken/mushroom version in my pantry. Also, I, "flipped" the dumplings midway through to make sure that the top part would be cooked all the way and this method worked very well for me, since I read in the other reviews that some ppl said that it took longer than they thought to cook the dumplings. I made it in a enameled cast iron pot, so I think that it also held the heat in better than a regular stainless steel pot, even on low it was pretty hot. This recipe was a big hit with my family and they have already told me they want to have it again. My children are very picky, so this is definitely a keeper and I am so impressed that something so easy to make came out tasting so fantastic."
