Ultimate Comfort Food

I recently tried a recipe for Chicken and Dumplings that I found on my mom's recipe blog (yes, my mother has multiple blogs). It was really good and warm (and comforting).

Chicken and Dumplings

3 (10.75 oz.) cans condensed cream of chicken soup
3 2/3 cups water
1 cup and 3 tbsp. chopped celery
3 onions, quartered
1 1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. poultry seasoning
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
5 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
6 carrots, sliced
2 (10 oz.) packages frozen green peas
5 potatoes, quartered
3 2/3 cups baking mix
1 1/2 cups and 2 tbsp. milk

1. In large, heavy pot, combine soup, water, chicken, celery, onion, salt, poultry seasoning, and pepper. Cover and cook over low heat about 1 1/2 hours.
2. Add potatoes and carrots; cover and cook another 30 minutes.
3. Remove chicken from pot, shred it, and return to pot. Add peas and cook only 5 minutes longer.
4. Add dumplings. To make dumplings: Mix baking mix and milk until a soft dough forms. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto BOILING stew. Simmer covered for 10 minutes, then uncover and simmer an additional 10 minutes.

wow, that sounds like a lot of peas. I would change that to one bag. I'll have to recheck my recipe.

I'm glad that you enjoyed it. I made it again the other day and dad really likes it.

Oh, I know why. I cut that recipe in 1/2 for just dad and I.
