Simple Chicken and Dumplings

I love chicken and dumplings. My grandma grew up in Georgia so she was an expert when it came to Southern cooking. She's definitely the reason why I love things like chicken and dumplings, biscuits and gravy, grits, etc. Now, I must admit, this recipe (found here) is nothing like hers (she made her dumplings from scratch) but it's one of my personal favorites because it's quick and easy. 

  • 1 and 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 cup frozen peas and carrots
  • 1 cup cooked chicken breast, shredded into big chunks
  • 1 can of creamy chicken mushroom soup
  • 1 cup Bisquick mix
  • 1/3 cup milk

Heat 1 1/2 cups milk, the peas and carrots, chicken and soup in a saucepan until it boils, stirring frequently.

Combine Bisquick mix and 1/3 cup milk until dough forms.

Drop spoonfuls of the dough onto the chicken mixture. Cook over low heat, uncovered for 10 minutes. Cover and cook for another 10 minutes. Keep an eye on it to make sure it doesn't boil over.

Add a little salt and pepper and enjoy!
