Just like Mom used to make, only easier.

I adapted this recipe to make it easier to enjoy Chicken and Dumplings anytime without the need to slave over a hot stove all day. This version uses Pennsylvania Dutch egg noodles and canned chicken broth for that all day simmered taste. There is a great tavern in my area that serves Chicken and Dumplings every Wednesday during the Fall and Winter months. This recipe has all the taste without all the fuss.
