Chicken and Buttermilk-Chive Dumplings

This week's Tried & True Tuesday is an awesome Chicken and Buttermilk-Chive Dumplings recipe by Tyler Florence!

My sister had this wonderful dinner waiting for me the night I arrived in Anchorage. I can't wait to make this dish back in Ohio this fall...it's the best Chicken & Dumplings I've ever had. EVER. 

This recipe has 5 stars with over 290 reviews. Here are some of the great reviews from foodnetwork.com:
"Delicious! The best dumplings I have ever had."
"Best ever, I go back to it time and time again."
"This is the tastiest chicken and dumplings I've ever had. Worth every minute of prep time. So much better than the thin noodle type dumplings. Everyone thought this meal was spectacular."
 "This was a comfort food extraordinaire! I made this for my husband and he loved it. I am a good cook, so he is pretty fussy. He had 2 servings, and held back before he would keep eating and eventually explode. This is going to be saved in my family cookbook. Thanks Tyler."
