Who ordered this snow? It may continue to snow but I'm warm indoors and working on some spring chores. I woke up craving comfort food, but something other than soup. Perfect day to make a pot of Creamy Chicken and Dumplings.
Creamy Chicken and Dumplings
I'm ready for Spring but where is it? This is more like December weather which requires some comfort food. My pot was filled with chunky veggies, braised boneless, skinless chicken thighs, spices and biscuit dumplings. The fragrance filled my place and I ready to kick back on my day off and enjoy a couple bowls. Curled up in front of the TV with the remote, a blanket, a tray with warm butter biscuits and some Creamy Chicken and Dumplings.
In the Kitchen
I used up some veggies from the fridge, so they would not go bad. This recipe is chunky and hearty. My hair was wrapped in a scarf and it's a sweats, tee, no makeup Friday. This ended up being a good budget recipe because chicken is a less expensive now, since everyone is buying ham and lamb for the holiday. The forecast calls for more snow and 30 below days so I'm freezing some batches for the rainy season and a few small containers to pack for lunch. Convienent and satisfying.
I like to clang and scrap the bowl.
Don't judge me.
T.I. - Hello - I saw T.I. perform this song on the Jimmy Kimmel show (it's on YouTube) and it was hot! Now I'm trying to learn the lyrics. Playing it on the tablet in the kitchen while I'm cutting veggies. I have the main chorus down... Hello...lol.
Diva's, this recipe should get you through the weekend. Share a container with some folks on a cold or wet day. We'll be preparing for Easter weekend so I'll return with some other easy and budget friendly recipes in a few days. Until then, Look Good, Cook Good and Entertain in Style.
Thank you for visiting.
