Remember When Chad Discovered His Mom’s Dumpling Recipe is a Fraud [Video]
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!! I thought I would share a little throwback from a couple of years ago when I discovered that my family's secret and delicious recipe for Chicken & Dumplings was about the biggest sham in this history of the culinary arts! Here's what happened when my mother showed me the "secret" recipe.
For some quick and necessary clarification, I grew up absolutely loving my family's recipe for Chicken & Dumplings and I spent my childhood convinced that my mother, aunt and grandmother had developed (in a test kitchen, with the help of Food Network scientists) an epic recipe for them. As it turns out (much to my surprise and dismay), it's not much of a recipe at all. What I thought was an intricate, family masterpiece is actually a two-ingredient dish. Here. I'll let my mother, Judy, explain. Enjoy it as she wrecks my memories of childhood.
Happy Thanksgiving! And may your Chicken & Dumplings be slightly more elaborate than mine!
