Comfort Food

{Chicken & Dumplings}

After a long week at work, this was the perfect meal for a Friday night. This recipe is so easy and full of flavor. A comfort food classic! I added carrots to the recipe to get another veggie in my husband, and instead of making my own chicken stock, I just used organic chicken broth.

1 lb chicken breasts
2 quarts chicken broth
2 cups bisquick
2/3 cups milk
2 tbsp butter
4 stalks celery
2 carrots
Bring chicken broth to a boil in a stock pot.

Meanwhile, mix together the bisquick and milk until soft dough forms. When broth comes to a boil, drop spoonfuls of dough into the chicken broth. Simmer over low heat, covered, for 10 mins, then uncovered for 10 mins.

Meanwhile, dice 2-4 stalks of celery until you have approximately 1/2 – 1 cup of diced celery. Cut or shred chicken into bit sized pieces. Saute celery in 2 tbsp of butter for a couple of mins. Add in chicken & season well with salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Add the chicken and celery to the soup broth and dumplings.

Serves 4 with left overs for lunch! Easy Breezy guys.
