Melt other T. butter in 2 qt. saucepan. Saute balance of onion and bell pepper until tender.

This has been a family favorite, Lil got it out of a Grit Magazine years ago. She always makes 4 batches of this recipe. We all fight over them. They are worth fighting over too!!!

It takes someone special to make a good dumpling. I've eaten too many bad ones that I'm often leary of them! But those look really good!

My Mother use to make dumplings as well, however I never acquired a taste for them....BUT this recipe sounds simply delicious. I am definitely going to try it.
Please thank your Mother-in-law for the inspiration. -Brenda-

I bet Lil has a few more comfort recipes that you can share with us later on. I did not grow up eating Chicken and Dumplings because in my Italian family they would have said "What is that". I can tell you that I am making up for not eating it as a child now. Oh so good.
Thanks for sharing.
