Em's Easy Chicken and Dumplings

First off- sorry from my unannounced absence here-I just started a new job a week ago, and have yet to figure out how to keep all the dishes spinning in the air- but I'll get it figured out. I'm back, and have a ton of recipes to share, blogs to catch up on and I have a new giveaway for the month of November that I think you'll enjoy. Tune in tomorrow for the giveaway details. I'll post my new recipes in the mornings, but probably will have to check out your sites in the evening to make this work, but I will come visit again. I miss the DELICIOUS recipes you all dish out.

This recipe comes from my friend Cheryl, whose daughter Emily created it for her 5 children! It's a little like a chowder since it's thick and has the addition of other vegetables, unlike the traditional dumplings. Delicious flavors, and simple to prepare.

You Will Need:

2 cups water
2 cans chicken broth
1 cup condensed cream of chicken soup
1 T. minced garlic
1/2 cup onion,chopped
1/2 cup celery,chopped
1/2 cup carrots, chopped
2 chicken breasts
1 can biscuits (the CHEAPER, the better, in this recipe)
Dash cilantro, oregano and parsley

Saute' onions, garlic,celery in a little oil till onions wilt. Add water, meat, broth and carrots. Cover pot on low boil till meat is cooked (15 minutes) . Remove meat and cut up. Return meat to pot; add soup,cilantro,oregano, and parsley. Tear biscuits into 1/4" pieces. Add to pot. Cover and simmer for ten minutes, stirring a few times to cover biscuits.

  8. Congratulations on your new job. But I have a question about the "chicken and dumplings" when do you add the flour and about how much do you use? This looks delicious and can't wait to try it this weekend, so cold here in Va. it's like 6 not including the wind. Thanks again.
