Chicken and Dumplings

Talk about comfort food!  I made this one rainy night a few weeks back, it is super simple, and warms your soul!  This is a recipe passed down from Corey's mom and I'm so glad to have it!  It gets made at least a few times in our house during the colder months each year.  So yummy!

2 or 3 carrots, diced
2 or 3 stalks celery, diced
1 small onion, diced
1-2 cups shredded chicken
2 - 32 oz boxes low sodium chicken broth
2 cups bisquick

Heat a tablespoon olive oil over medium heat in a large stock pot.  Add carrots, celery, and onion and saute for 8-10 minutes until they begin to get tender.  Add chicken broth and chicken and bring to a boil.  Mix 2 cups bisquick with 1/4 cup milk, continuing to add milk if needed.  You want to be able to form dumplings, but not too wet (dryer is better).  Form dumplings with your hands by rolling dough into quarter or golf ball size balls.  Once you've made dumplings with all of the dough, gently place them into boiling broth.  Boil uncovered for 10 minutes then cover and boil an additional 10 minutes.  Add salt and pepper to taste if desired.  Serve immediately!

sorry not the prettiest picture, but soo tasty!
