Chicken and Dumplings- Use What You Have Style

Yes indeed, folks, Princess Kat did inspire tonight's dinner. She posted a super looking recipe for Chicken and Dumplings the other day. The only catch was that I had exactly 1 of the ingredients she called for. Chicken. The good news is that I am not a total loss in the kitchen. Here's what I came up with. It's completely different, but all the way inspired by Kat.



In a large skillet mix 3 cans of broth (I used beef broth because that is what I had and I knew no one would notice that the CHICKEN was in BEEF broth) with about 1/4 cup corn starch. Heat until bubbly. Add 3 cubed chicken breasts and 1 1/2 cups sliced carrots. While the chicken and carrots are cooking mix together a biscuit mix. The recipe that I have swimming around in my head for this is 2 cups flour, 1 cup milk, 1/2 cup oil, and 1 T baking powder. After chicken has cooked, add 1 drained can of corn, 1 can of condensed cream of mushroom soup and drop biscuit mixture onto the top. Put into a 375 degree oven and bake until biscuits are cooked, about 1/2 hour. Serve and enjoy. We did.

The princess was an inspiration for not one but two posts about chicken and dumplings :-) And I love the idea of using what you already have. I have things that are lost in my pantry and I have no idea why we have them in the first place.

Is that why you needed my flour?? Where's mine?

Thanks for sharing. I'm doing yet another version tonight using some of your recipe and some of Kat's. :)
