Tonight I made Chicken and Dumplings for the very first time and it didn't kill my family!!
It was easy and delish.
I didn't follow a recipe, but I did look at one to get an idea of what to use.
I cooked three, chopped chicken breasts in a little olive oil/butter mixture, I added two chopped fresh carrots and one chopped stalk of celery after the chicken was done. Then I added a can of cream of chicken soup and some chicken broth. I didn't measure, like I said before I rarely do! I just made it nice and soupy (it thickens later too). I threw in some sage, thyme, salt and pepper. Boiled it until the carrots were just done and then I threw in the dumplings. I totally cheated there, cut up biscuits! I continued to boil, covered and stirring occasionally, for about 10 mins.
And for the sweet stuff! Literally....
I have the best mother in law alive! We got a box of goodies, which we do each year, and this year it had
one of my favorite things!
Jack Daniels Pie
Yes, yes you read that right. I don't even like Jack Daniels but it's the BEST pie, chocolatey and delicious!
The box she sent it in was even better... oh how I miss my home state of Texas!
