Quick Chicken and Dumplings

I made this tonight for supper. Yummy!

6 cooked chicken breasts (or equivalent in precooked, precut chicken)
3 cups of chicken broth (low sodium)
3 cups water
10 ounces carrots, cut into matchsticks (precut is good)
10 ounces frozen peas
2 cups biscuit mix
2/3 cup milk
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup water
grated cheddar cheese
garlic powder
black pepper
bay leaf

1. In large Dutch oven or saucepan, start heating up the water and chicken broth on moderately high heat, add pepper and thyme to the liquid (all seasonings are to taste).
2. Add the carrots and peas, bring to a boil and cook five minutes.
3. Add chicken; let the pot return to a boil; add bay leaf
4. Mix together biscuit mix, cheese, rosemary, parsley and garlic powder (again, to taste). Add milk and stir until batter forms (it'll be sticky).
5. Mix together the flour and water until smooth, add to the boiling stew and stir it in thoroughly.
6. Drop tablespoon-size lumps of batter into the liquid, starting around the outside and moving inward.
7. Drop the heat to a simmer. Simmer uncovered for 10 minutes, then cover and simmer 10 minutes more.

The whole operation took about 45 minutes, and it tasted great.

Let's try this again

Your post seems to involve "cooking". I avoid cooking as I am a dine-atarian. If someone else cooks the food, I will dine upon it. :)

So what time shall I show up for dinner?

::LOL:: Well, it's a point of honor that all the men in my family know how to cook (no telling how long the women will put up with us).
