Chicken and Dumplings

6 servings

3 (10.75 ounce) cans condensed cream of chicken soup

3 cups chicken stock

3 cups chicken, cut into chunks

1 cup each celery and onion, chopped

2 tsp of onion powder

1 tsp of garlic powder

1/2 tsp of garlic salt

2 tsp of poultry seasoning

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

1 cup each potato and carrot, chopped

1 cup frozen green peas

1 1/2 cups baking mix (optional, see notes at end)

2/3 cups milk

 

In large, heavy pot, combine soup, stock, chicken, celery, onion and seasonings. Cover and cook over low heat about 1 1/2 hours.

Add potatoes and carrots; cover and cook another 30 minutes.

Add peas and cook only 5 minutes longer.

Add dumplings. To make dumplings: Mix baking mix and milk until a soft dough forms. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto BOILING stew. Simmer covered for 10 minutes, then uncover and simmer an additional 10 minutes.

*Helpful hint: DO NOT “drop” your dumplings to close together, to cook properly they need room to breathe and the liquid needs to bubble up between them.

*Instead of making dumplings you can use refrigerated buttermilk biscuits.  Cut each biscuit into eights with a pair of scissors right into the pot of broth and simmer as stated above.
