Bisquick Chicken and Dumplings

These chicken and dumplings are super easy and very delicious! I made them last night to warm us up in the snow and Jeremy requested that we have them at least twice a week from now on. We might get a little sick of them, but at least I know he liked them! Give them a try and see what you think. This recipe made enough for 4 large bowls.


Soupy part:
3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
32 oz chicken or vegetable broth
1/2 c milk

2 c Heartsmart Bisquick mix
9 tbsp milk

1. Put boneless, skinless chicken breasts in large pot, cover with broth. If chicken is not totally covered, you may need to add a little water too. Cook chicken until tender and no pink is left.

2. Remove chicken from broth. Shred chicken into bite sized pieces and return to the broth. Careful not to burn yourself on the hot chicken! It did just come from boiling water, you know.

3. Make the dumplings. To do this, put 2 c Bisquick into a bowl. Add in 9 tbsp milk. Stir until well blended. Coat hands with flour (this will prevent the dough from sticking to your hands) and roll dough into 1 in balls.

4. When all the dough is rolled, bring the broth back to a boil. Once boiling, drop each dumpling one by one into the broth. Make sure each dumpling fully submerges at first. They will pop back up, but that is ok!

5. When all the dumplings are in the pot, add 1/2 c milk. Gently poke the dumplings back down again but DO NOT STIR. This will cause the dumplings to fall apart and that's no fun, now is it? Reduce the heat to medium low and allow the dumplings to cook for 10-15 minutes. You may want to cover them after the first 7 minutes or so.

6. Once the dumplings are starting to cook and solidify, THEN you can stir to make sure the chicken doesn't stick to the bottom. But don't get too vigorous with this! Add salt and pepper to taste and serve! Yummy!
