  2. bring chicken stew back to a boil and then add dumpling mixture. then let simmer for ten minutes uncovered, then cover and simmer 10-20 minutes longer
  3. i like to crisp my dumpling tops so the taste like they came out of the wood stove oven so i put the pot under the broiler for just a minute or so before serving...
