Chicken and Herb Dumplings

There are foods I will always associate with my childhood. Chicken with dumplings is one of those dishes. I can remember watching my Mother spooning the dumpling batter over the simmering pot of chicken and vegetables. She’d cover the pot and wait. When she uncovered it the dumplings had puffed up and pretty much covered the whole dish. It was magical to me. The dumplings were so tender and light. I can’t make this dish, all these years, later without thinking of her.
