Here's the recipe for our Surprise Wedding Mac & Cheese! All photos here are credited to Kelsey Davis and are included in the CantonRep article.

Southern Style Chicken & Dumplings

Brian Leigh

This Southern Style Chicken & Dumplings is amazing - Hearty, creamy, jam-packed with herbs and loaded with chicken! I had the family over and they annihilated most of the pot in between heaping mouthfuls of praise and dumplings. Winner winner chicken dinner indeed.
