Chicken and Dumplings

Well day four and I have not had a drink, sadly, I’m not going to say it’s been easy – especially with Taco Tuesday and the nice/ frozen margaritas my friends were enjoying and rubbing in my face. . .but I’m staying strong and already regretting making this promise especially since I am going to Jags playoff game on Sunday now! But I WILL do it, plus I actually enjoy testing my willpower!

Anyway, I vowed to make new recipes this year and with unbearably cold temperatures in Florida (it was 32 degrees today) I decided to go with a nice/comfort meal of Chicken and Dumplings.

I Googled whether it was Chicken AND Dumplings or just Chicken Dumplings.  I guess in reality it doesn’t matter, but don’t want to look like a fool 🤣

I combined a bunch of recipes with whatever was in my pantry and came up with my own yummy version! You can say I cheated, but the “cheat” came out pretty tasty if you ask me! I kept it extremely simple with two tricks:

  1. Crock Pot
  2. Canned biscuits

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 Pounds of Boneless Chicken Breasts
  • 2 cans of cream of chicken broth (32 ounces)
  • Chicken Broth
  • Can of biscuits
  • Dried parsley flakes
  • Poultry seasoning

In case you forgot, I don’t eat vegetables, so I didn’t include any celery, carrots or onions like I saw in a lot of recipes.

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Place chicken breasts at the bottom of crock pot and cover with poultry seasoning.
  2. Add in cans of cream of chicken and 32 oz of chicken broth
  3. Sprinkle parsley flakes over top with a dash of salt and pepper
  4. Cook on low for eight hours
  5. After eight hours shred the chicken
  6. Cut biscuits in quarters and drop in crock pot
  7. Cover and cook on low for one hour
  8. SERVE!

Side note:  I love the crock pot that I was using – it is actually my grandmothers and probably circa 1970, but after dropping in the dumplings, I realized it was likely going to overflow, so I had to pull out my larger crock pot! 🤣

My friends who came over, both went back for seconds and each one said that it was

DELICIOUS!!!

I didn’t get a final picture and actually dirtied up a plate to to take one of the little bit of leftovers I had available.

(How long can I claim “I’m new to this whole blogging thing”?)
