Chicken and Dumpling Recipe

I am a little late on posting this recipe but better late than never! My recipe is time-consuming but not hard to make.

Chicken and Dumplings

1 whole chicken or 3 large chicken breast with bone and skin
2 large onions (cut into quarters)
4 stalks of celery (cut into large pieces)
1 lb of carrots (peeled and sliced) or frozen mixed veggies
Bisquick mix

In a large pot put the chicken, onion and celery. Fill the pot with water covering chicken/veggies. Cook chicken on medium for about an hour until chicken is done. Remove chicken to a plate to cool. Remove the onion and celery from the pot and discard as it is just used to make a nice stock. Then when chicken is cool enough to debone - debone chicken and add back to pot. I usually add carrots to the broth while the chicken is cooling to get ahead start on cooking it. Make the dumplings according to the Bisquick mix box. Bring the pot of chicken and veggies to a boil. Scoop the bisquick in spoonfuls into the broth. They will float to the top and an not sink into the broth. Put the lid on the pot and cook for 20 minutes. Take the lid off and cook for another 10 -15 minutes until the dumplings are cooked. They will be fluffy - just poke a fork into to one to check for doneness. This recipe is so yummy. It is from the best cook ever - my Mother!

Just back from Disney....

where I did 0 cooking. It is now hard to get back in the swing since I have been on vacation two wonderful weeks. Thursday was ham, yesterday wa schili. Today was California Pizza Kitchen (yum). I need to go to the grocery but here is the next few days.

Navy Bean Soup using leftover ham for dinner
we will have black eyed peas and sour kraut for lunch with turkey smoked sausage. I had all of this on hand already.

Tuesday (last day before we go back to work)
Lunch will be nachos using the leftover chili
Dinner will be something easy - grilled ham and cheese sandwiches (using the last of the ham) and leftover bean soup

Wednesday - GROCERY! I haven't been since early December!

That sounds good. Are they fridge or frozen....the pastries? I can think of all kinds of things to stuff them with!
The puff pastry is from Pepridge Farm. It comes frozen and then you can cut the sheets the way you need them. The Pierogies were an off brand but I also like Mrs. T's.

We ended up at panera for dinner. We did a bunch of running around since today was the first day I had off since Christmas and I work for the next two days.

Carrots, onion, and peas (we use a frozen mixture from our grocery - I put in about half a bag, but you could put none in or adjust it however you like). Cook on low 6-8 hours. One hour before its done, add one more can of broth and 2 cans of biscuits. I cut the biscuits into 4 pieces. Cook for the last hour and then enjoy! So incredibly simple and delicious!
2 cans of Refrigerator biscuits??? raw? oh that does sound easy!

Will give it a try this week

I never knew you could by frozen dumplings... I'll have to look for them.. thank you!

Chicken and dumplings (well, biscuits...because I don't like wet dumplings)

Preheat oven to 350F. Put a 10 oz. box of frozen peas and carrots and 4 tbsp butter into a microwave/oven-safe 12x9 casserole. Cook in microwave on high until crisp tender; it'll take about 3-4 minutes, stirring halfway through. Stir in 4 tbsp flour, a dash of pepper and 1/2 tsp. dried marjoram.

Stir in a can of low sodium chicken broth and 2/3 cup milk, and microwave on 50% power until thickened, stirring every minute or so. Add up to another 1/3 cup milk if the sauce is too thick, Add 2 cups cooked chicken and microwave until heated through, about 3 minutes on high, stirring halfway through. Taste and correct seasonings.

Top casserole with biscuits (canned, homemade, bisquick) and bake until cooked through and browned. I usually make a kind of biscuit "crumble" that I scatter over the top.

Joining the legions of people who are making a commitment to eat healthier this year! I ideally have 35 pounds I would like to lose but my main goal is just to eat better and be more active. Cutting out excess sugar and drinking more water to start. I always go absolutely crazy at first and lose weight quickly but I never maintain it. So this year I am working on some moderation and balance in my life

So, I'll need to shop this week. For the first few days...

Today, Black Forest Ham, Steamed Broccoli, Cooked Carrots, and small Baked Potato

Wednesday.. Butternut Squash Soup, Salad

Thursday.. Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Salad

Friday... Hamburgers, Asparagus

Monday: Ham bits, black-eyed peas, diced sweet potatoes and onions, and mustard greens all mixed together. Oh, and cornbread. And blackberries and cream. Gotta feed my inner hillbilly on New Year's Day.

Tuesday: The rest of the shrimp, udon, ****take, and snow peas stir-fry from New Year's Eve. Citrus salad for dessert.

Wednesday: The rest of the black-eyed peas and mustard greens. And cornbread. And blackberries.

Thursday: Grilled shrimp on the Foreman Grill, black beans, salsa and pineapple rice.

Friday: I think there's something going on at church. Maybe the chicken and biscuits casserole I posted earlier and cranberry salad.

Slow Cooker Saturday: Beef cubes and tomatoes in the slow cooker, with white beans, kale, cashews and cranberries. Strawberries and cream.

Big Dinner Sunday: Butternut squash lasagna in the oven, cranberry/mustard glazed pork tenderloin in the slow cooker, steamed green beans with seasoned butter. If I'm feeling less ambitious, it'll be butternut squash soup out of a box and the other stuff.

Tonight we are having chickpeas and brown rice... just because I made it yesterday and by the time it was finished, no one was hungry thanks to all the other finger foods I made. I always get up and just make.

Tomorrow... probably thaw out the spaghetti and italian sausage and make some type of baked dish.

Thurs- Turkey Soup w/salad

Friday- Pork Roast w/veggies & biscuits

Saturday- Left overs

Sunday- Baked Chicken, Salad, Rice

Now, off to make my shopping lists! (I have most stuff on hand, but I need to buy a few staples.) I shop and plan my menus according to what's on sale, plus what I have on hand.
