Chicken and Dumplings

Chicken & Dumplings
I received this fantastic Le Creuset bowl from CSN Stores
and bottom line…
I’ve used it so many times and have only had it a couple of days.
It’s 1.4 quarts and shiny red and pretty as can be.
I now have it sitting on the counter next to the stove ready to go with whatever is next!
It’s so pretty I’m not even going to have to find a spot for it in a cabinet
It’s plenty large enough to mix in, I used it to melt butter for my Valentine’s Day cookies which have to cool before I add the eggs and it was so nice that the bowl wasn’t so hot after being in the microwave, as my other bowls get. It’s very thick and sturdy, and safe in the oven, microwave, refrigerator and freezer.
CSN Stores have so many items and websites Cookware.com is wonderful, they have many Le Creuset items, it was fun browsing to see what nice items they offered.
Back to Dinner…
tonight I used the bowl to mix the dumplings and it was great.
and yes, I still use Bisquick to make them just like my mom did when I was a kid
I’ve made the dumpling from scratch as well, but not this time.
The recipe for dumplings is on the package all you need to add to the Bisquick is milk.
speaking of my mom and Le Creuset,
take a look at what she spoiled me with…
Yes, my very own Le Creuset 9 QT. dutch oven
Yes, I was shocked !
My mom always says you have to have the right tools,
and now I feel like a real cook!
I slow cooked the chicken on medium
while I took the chicken off the bone
I skimmed the fat off the broth then,
chopped 6 large carrots, 3 stalks of celery, and half an onion
simmered them with 1-2 tablespoon chicken flavor
then scooped out the dumpling mix and placed it on top of the simmering both with the chicken returned to the pot.
I cooked the dumplings for 10 minutes without being covered
then 10 minutes covered
the dumplings come out flakey
Just like I remember my mom’s
Thanks mom, you are the best!
