Easy Chicken and Dumplings – Dallas News | myFOXdfw.com.

Chicken and Dumplings
2 chicken breasts cooked and cubed
1 onion chopped
2 ribs of celery finely chopped
1 cup of carrots finely chopped
1 quart chicken stock
1 can home-style biscuits
1 tablespoon rubbed sage
1 teaspoon dried parsley
½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
Salt to taste

In a large soup pot, cook vegetables over medium heat in about ½ cup chicken stock until they begin to get tender, about 6 minutes. Add remaining ingredients reserving biscuits and continue to cook until soup is bubbling. Open biscuits. Working one biscuit at a time begin pinching small pieces of dough and flatten with fingers before dropping into bubbling pot. When all biscuits have been added in this manner, turn heat down to low- medium, cover pot with lid and cook for about 8 minutes, stirring occasionally.

In a large soup pot, cook bacon until it is crispy. Drain any excess grease from pan. Add onions and celery, jalapeno and ½ can of chicken stock. Simmer until onions begin to turn clear, about 5 minutes. Add the rest of the chicken stock, water and potatoes to the soup pot. Cook until potatoes are tender. Add corn, shrimp and heavy cream and simmer for about 5 minutes. Season soup with salt and pepper to taste. Add butter, stir until melted and serve.

About Lorie Fangio

I am a lifestyle advisor with a passion for connecting families Around the Table for mealtime. We are becoming a society that doesn’t even speak to each other, texting and internet relationships are the norm and it is impacting our culture. I believe the human connection as we know it, is in danger. Finding time to spend together as a family unit can be difficult especially with dual family careers and children that are often hyper scheduled. My mission is to inspire families, with a no nonsense approach to real food. Gathering Around the Table is key to the foundation of familial relationships. Sitting down to a meal is much more than breaking bread, it is a bonding ritual for families that actually protects our kids from all the dangerous stuff in the world. With tips and techniques we can all get our families Around the Table!
