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. 
Thanks, Barbara

Hi Barbara,

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.
