The best chicken and dumplings I've ever had were at Tad’s Chicken ‘n Dumplins on the
Sandy River in Troutdale Oregon. They are served in a big dish of stewed white-meat
chicken in gravy—with extra gravy on the side. The dumplings are the size of your
fist—large, fluffy and delicious. When I was there, I asked them the secret to their
dumplings and they said all they knew for sure was they have egg in them. I have
searched on line but couldn't find a Copycat recipe. I was hoping you could help.
I would really love to have the recipe and will appreciate any help you can give me.
Tad's website is here: Tad's Chicken 'n Dumplings
There is a photo of their chicken and dumplings here: Photo
I had no success finding a recipe or a copycat or a "tastes-like" for Tad's chicken and dumplings.
I did find lots of reviews of Tad's chicken and dumplings, both positive and negative. The only
recipe that I could find that even mentioned Tad's was one that said their dumplings were rather
bland. They give their own recipe, which they say has much more flavor:
Catz in the Kitchen
There are dozens of chicken and dumplings recipes on the web, but I could not recommend any of
them as tasting like Tad's because I have never tasted Tad's.
I'll post this for reader input. Perhaps a reader who has eaten Tad's dumplings can provide a
recipe that they know from experience tastes like Tad's.
