Homemade Chicken and Dumplings

 My girlfriend made our families an awesome meal tonight! It was my hubby's FIRST time having Chicken and Dumplings (that were not from an MRE)!!! Our oldest and he chowed down on it like there was no tomorrow. I managed to get a few bites in... ;) The hubby scrapped the bottom of the pot. Needless to say, I snagged the recipe from her to be able to share with all of you AND make here at home for the bottomless pit family I have. :)

4 chicken breasts
Half an onion chopped into big pieces
Butter 2 tablespoons of
Italian seasoning (3 teaspoons)
2 garlic cloves cut into 4's
Chicken Broth 62 ounces (1 1/2 boxes)
6 Chicken Bouillon Cubes
Half bag of baby carrots
4 stems celery chopped

Bisquick for dumplings 2/4 cup
Milk 2/3 cup


1. Boil chicken for 2 hours with water just covering the the top of the chicken with:
Onion, Butter,  Italian seasoning,  Garlic cloves added

2. Shred chicken inside pot after boiling

3. Put in chicken broth after 2 hours with bouillon cubes, baby carrots and chopped celery

4. Boil for 30-45min

5. Bisquick  2/4 cup mix and 2/3 cup of milk; it will be thick make sure you get all of flour mixed together
