This chicken and dumplings is one of the most satisfying things for me to cook because while it does take a little bit of effort, that effort is rewarded tenfold with a soup you'll be both proud to share and selfishly want to keep all for yourself.
Controversial statement: There's only one good thing about St. Patrick's Day in the United States. And that one good thing is an excuse to make Guinness Beef Stew! Of course you don't "need" the excuse, but it helps. For this recipe, I took my tried and true Guinness stew recipe and gave it the pot pie treatment.
