Chicken-n-Dumplings

December 4, 2010

I love chicken-n-dumplings! I grew up in a small town with lots of German foods, but never really made any of these wonderful dishes myself. They are available in our town cookbooks, but most of them are extremely time-consuming. Since time is something that we do not have a lot of around here, I wanted to find something that taste great and was easy to make. What I came up with is so simple, my 3-year-old can make it. Well I should say he helps make it, not quite ready to let him use the stove top without mommy’s help!

Chicken-n-Dumplings
6-8 frozen home-style biscuits, cut into pieces (depends on what size you want your dumplings)
4 cups chicken stock
1/3 cup onion, chopped fine
3/4 cup carrots, chopped
1 or 2 cooked chicken breasts, cut into chunks (you can also use leftover chicken or canned chicken instead)
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 tsp rosemary
salt & pepper to taste

First you bring the stock to a boil and add onions and carrots. Reduce heat to a simmer and add chicken, cream of chicken soup, rosemary and salt and pepper to taste. Heat to a simmer the put in the cut up biscuits, cover and simmer for 20 minutes stirring regularly.

Sound easy enough huh! I got the basics of this recipe off of a bag of frozen biscuits but added a few things to it. Sometimes I even throw in some mixed vegetables as well to give it a little more pizzaz and to make it a little healthier. You have to get creative when trying to get a 3-yr-old to eat his vegetables! I usually make the rest of the biscuits and serve them as well. Why not have a little bread with your dough balls!

Hayden loves chicken-n-dumplings too, but I think what he enjoys most is the honey biscuits!
