Quick 'n Easy Chicken 'n Dumplings
Cold winter day and hunkering for something warm and hearty. This is a short cut recipe to making great Chicken and Dumplings.
2 large cans chicken stock (2 boxes same thing :) )
1/4 diced celery
1/2 diced onions, yellow or sweet, your choice
1/2 cup parsley
Cooked Chicken (rotisserie chicken is amazing in this recipe, frozen grilled strips work well too)
Grands refrigerated Biscuits. (Southern Style, Buttermilk are fine, don't use flaky or butter)
Saute the celery and onions in olive oil until translucent
Add chicken stock and parsley and bring to a gentle boil.
Add cut up chicken pieces
Simmer 15 - 30 minutes
Cut the grands biscuits into quarter sizes and roll them vigorously. You want them to hold together when you drop them into the hot liquid, so if you are too gentle they will fly apart.
Bring the stock up to a boil and add the biscuit balls one at a time, rapidly to the the stock. Turn back down to simmer and cook another 10 minutes
