My wife does something similar, but uses flour tortillas for the dumplings. Not bad.
But, my mother's and father's families all were raised in the country in Alabama. My mom, and all those aunts were some of the best cooks in the world. There's no substitute for the way they kused to cook things, including chicken & dumplings. But in the day and age where mom and dad are so often full time employed, cooking has suffered mightily.
