Chicken & Dumplings
I don't know about you, but when it comes to comfort foods (especially now that we are into the autumn season) Chicken & Dumplings top my list.
Now I have made more different recipes (never to be disappointed) than I can count. And I won't keep trying. But if you're looking for a quick, delicious, pillow-like dumplings, this is about as good as you'll do. And quick and easy. Great for a cool, damp evening.
CHICKEN & DUMPLINGS (4-6 servings)
1 rotisserie chicken, pulled or shredded
2 quarts chicken stock
1 medium onion, diced
2 carrots, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
2 cups Bisquick
3/4 cup milk
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 Tbsp minced fresh parsley
fresh thyme, rosemary, or sage added to dumplings, if desired
In a large stockpot, add stock, onion, carrots, and celery. Cover with lid on cook on medium-high for 15-20 minutes.
Add chicken, cover, and bring to a boil.
Meanwhile, in a large bowl, use a fork to stir together the Bisquick, milk, S&P, and parsley (and other herbs if using), and let rest 10 minutes.
Lower heat. Using two spoons, drop biscuits one at a time (about 1 tsp each) into the simmering liquid, cover, and cook 15 minutes. Serve immediately.
