Sundays at our home are all about comfort food.
Yesterday I did the rest of my Christmas shopping early in the day, then we went and saw a movie.
I had no real plans for dinner so when Brad asked what we should cook I thought of a meal that my boss suggested recently.
Chicken and dumplings, the easy way.
Don't get me wrong -- I grew up eating dumplings probably once a week.
My family can whip up a pot like it's a peanut butter and jelly but I have always been intimidated because of having to roast a chicken and make the dough.
That is -- until my boss suggested this recipe.
From there you:
-Put 3-cups of chicken stock, 2 cans of cream of chicken, and 2-or-3 cups of water in a pot and bring to a boil.
-Stir until all the cream of chicken is dissolved.
-Take your frozen dumplings and divide and throw into pot. DON'T STIR!
-Let the dumplings cook
-From there put your chicken in. We were last minute doing this so we bought a rotisserie chicken from the store but you could use left over chicken from another meal if you wanted or roast one(even though, this dish is cooked different if you roast your own.)
-Let simmer for a few minutes and serve.
Having had a few dumplings in my life I can be pretty snobby about them, but for a quick meal I was pretty impressed with how these turned out!
The whole meal took less than 20-minutes!
Brad loved it too!
Buddy only wishes he could have had a bite.
He camped out in the kitchen by the pot in hopes.
He does this every once in a while and it makes me laugh.
The countdown to Christmas on!
Grocery shopping, baking and preps for our Holiday Open House on Friday night!
