Chicken 'n Dumplins

{ That's how you say it so that's how you spell it. }

My grandma Forga used to make chicken 'n dumplins, and I liked them OK. I felt compelled to try my hand an making them, so I gave it a shot on Saturday. Though not exactly for the first time...

A few months ago, I made white-trash chicken 'n dumplins. The main ingredients were cooked chicken, cream of chicken soup, and canned biscuits. We ate it, and I was nauseous for the next 3 days. I rarely feel nauseous, and never for that long. I literally thought I was pregnant. I literally went out, bought a pregnancy test, and took the test while Josh prayed in the hallway. 

{ TMI? Probably so. }

Anyway, point is, it was a bad deal. This time, I made the C&D from scratch, using an easy recipe I found online.

I used my favorite new method for cooking chicken. I learned it from a chicken enchilada post over at The Way the Cookie Crumbles.

I put my new plate with handles to good use, as a holding area for the dumplins.

I thought the finished product was alright. Josh wasn't thrilled. "It's just so... chicken-flavored," he said. (Chicken is not his favorite.) Whatever, I'm in it for the dumplins baby.

Let me know when you find the *perfect* chicken and dumplins recipe (and I concur about the spelling). I am on the look out for a good one!

P.S. I love your new banner!

I bet you are looking for good chicken recipes! That chicken enchilada recipe is really good if you're into that sort of thing. A little dry though; I modified it to make it a little more saucy.

And actually, this C&D recipe isn't half bad. I like the simplicity, and it tastes good leftover. Not that that would be much of a consideration at your house. ;)
