Simple Chicken and Dumplings

With fall in the air, I figure this might be a good one to share.

Chicken and dumplings
Add the following to a crock pot and let it cook until the chicken can be shreded:
5-6 med chicken breast
celery
onion
ground black pepper
cover with water or chicken stock (I use stock)

When the chicken is done, remove it and strain out the pieces of veggies. Put the broth back in the crock and turn on HIGH. In a small pan melt 3-4 tablespoons of butter, add an equal amount of flour and cook until light brown. Add a few cups of the broth to the flour/butter mixture and stir until no lumps remain. Pour this mixture into the broth, this will give you a nice rich creamy base. Now that the chicken has cooled enough to handle, chop it into small pieces and toss it back into the crock with the broth.

Make the dumpling dough, you can use any biscuit recipie, or bisquick, or even canned biscuits. I cut them about half the size of a sugar packet, or about 1.5 inch by 1.5 inch. If you are using canned biscuits, cut them into 4 or 6 pieces. Slowly add them to the crock, I do half, wait a few minutes and add the other half. Remember the dumplings will thicken the soup a bit more, and they will swell to about double thier size, so don't worry that there aren't enough. Let them cook for about 25 mins, remove a dumpling and cut it in half, it should be done in the center.

I don't ride, I cook!

I'm hungry for the first time in days. And Manders is 1.1k miles away. Too far to even mail a sammich.

Vern, I think it would both work fine, trading a carb for a carb. I commonly put elbow noodles in my chili.

Ok, if you use noodles instead of of the dumpling mix, the soup will be thin since the dumplings help to thicken it. The noodles will thicken it but not as much. You can also add a can of cream of chicken soup, but that makes it too heavy for my taste and takes away from the homemade feel of the dumplings.

I found a new product by Knorr, it looks like a bbq sauce packet from mcd's and it's condensed stock. You just drop the little glob into 4 cups of hot water for perfect stock. I used 2 of them in about 8 cups of water. It was the best stock I have ever had. Of course I also had my own chicken, onion, and celery in there, but still it was very very good.

Mandy do you throw the veggies back into the crock pot at some point, or do you toss them? This sounds good; I've never made C&D but I'm a sucker for an easy homemade recipe. I will give it a try!

I make chicken potpie filling all the time and serve it over rice or egg noodles; it's another easy dish I love that is really versatile.

I toss the veggies, they are just mush, and I hate mushy veggies. I have also put fresh veggies in after I strain the broth, they are cooked but not over cooked by the time I'm ready to serve it.

You can add mushrooms, cheese, peas, green beans, just about any veggie to this to make it more of a meal. I usually serve it with green beans, or spinich salad.

I have also used the stick blender and just pureed the veggies, but I don't like the texture, it seems to be gritty then.

There is an article in this month's Saveur mag (which I thought was no longer being published, but I bought a copy in San Juan, so who knows...) about "long-cooked" vegetables. It was basically saying that the french method of blanching and serving vegetables crisp isn't the end-all-be-all of the vegetable cooking world. It was pretty interesting. I can scan it if anyone is interested.

I grew up on over cooked veggies and HATE them. Blek! I know they are still good for you, but I just can't do it. The only veggie I want soft is potatos.

Wait! Here it is.
http://www.saveur.com/article/Techni...-Soft-Approach

It's an interesting read. I like crisp veggies but I'm willing to give some of these a try. I think green beans, broccoli, and brussels sprouts would all be really good in the right long-cooked recipe.
