Chicken and Dumplings

This is a meal I used to be afraid of preparing because it seemed complicated but it is really very easy with very few ingredients.
  • Saute sliced onions and celery in a small amount of butter and salt and pepper
  • Add cooked chicken, I use shredded rotisserie chicken, then add around 3 cups of chicken broth to the pot.
  • Bring to a boil and then reduce heat and simmer. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Two options for dumplings are, using the recipe for dumplings on the back of the Bisquick box or using refrigerated biscuits.
  • When using refrigerated biscuits, use the "cheap" kind, not flaky layers or Grands. I cut the biscuits up in 4 pieces per biscuit and then lightly coat all the biscuit pieces in flour before adding to the chicken broth mixture. Cook stir occasionally until biscuit dough is cooked though.
