Easy Chicken and Dumplings

This is one of my family's favorite recipes during the winter. It's so easy and in the top 10 for comfort foods. I just wouldn't be your friend if I didn't share this wholesome goodness with you.



Easy Chicken and Dumplings -



Buy a rotisserie chicken from the grocery, de-bone and de-skin and shred the meat and set aside.



Chop 1 medium onion, peel and chop 3 carrots, chop 3 stalks of celery.



In a skillet saute onions until translucent over medium high heat in 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil.



In a large stock pot or Dutch oven, add one 32 ounce container of chicken stock, 1-1/2, 32 ounce containers of chicken broth, 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning, carrots, celery, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon black pepper and sauteed onions. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to simmer for about 10 minutes to soften vegetables.



Add 2 cans of condensed chicken gravy, stir to combine and simmer another 1o minutes. Add shredded chicken.



Open a can of buttermilk biscuits and quarter each biscuit. Add biscuits to pot and cover pot. Let simmer for 10 minutes and serve with crunchy French bread.

FMTA! I just posted a Chicken & Dumplin' recipe with a twist on my blog last week. (Use tortilla strips instead of dumplings.) This looks yummers, and I especially like the idea of buying the chicken already cooked!
