Nothing calls for classic comfort food like cold winter nights. I saw this recipe for Chicken and Cornmeal Dumplings on Pinterest and it looked delicious.
Tonight I made the recipe and it was a little disappointed. I'm not sure if I missed something, or if it had to do with the fact that I used boneless breasts and reduced sodium broth, but it seemed to be lacking flavor. I did use more chicken than suggested, but I tried to counteract by multiplying the other ingredients by 1 1/2.
The chicken and the veggies were tender, and the dumplings were good, but the flavoring seemed a little off. I added salt to my bowl and it made it better. Not awesome, but not bad either.
(If anyone else has made this, let me know how yours turns out!)
