A friend was asking for dinner ideas and when I said “chicken & dumplings” she said she always messed them up, so I wrote this for her:
Dumplings (the way we make them in Vermont, anyhow, not the noodley ones they make in some other places) are easy! 2 cups bisquick or jiffy mix (I use the Aldi brand) plus one cup quick oats and 1 cup milk and drop that biscuity mix onto gently boiling broth-y stuff. Yesterday I only put one chicken breast, cut up, with lots of fresh & frozen veggies (cook/saute (cut up) 3 stalks of celery, 3 carrots, 1 zucchini, some corn & peas), some basil & italian seasonings, garlic & pepper, with 1 of those boxes of chicken broth. Make it in a WIDE lowish pan so you can fit all the dumplings across the top. Drop by spoonfuls, cover, turn down to simmer for 12 minutes.
