Chicken and Dumplings

This is a traditional chicken and dumpling recipe. We will be releasing a healthier recipe in the near future, but for now here is the nostalgic version. Here are the ingredients:

2 whole cloves
12 pearl or small whole onions
1 bay leaf
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp dried marjoram
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 cup chicken broth
3 tbsp cornstarch
1/4 cup cold water
1/2 tsp browning sauce, optional
1 cup Bisquick baking mix
6 tbsp milk
1 1/2 tsp parsley flakes
2 3-ounce cans of chunk chicken breast in water

Cooking Instructions:

Place cloves, and onions into a large stainless steel pot with the water and broth. You can use either a Dutch oven or large saucepan and turn the heat on medium high. Add the garlic, salt, thyme, marjoram, and pepper. Add the pre-cooked chicken. In a bowl combine cornstarch, water, and browning sauce until smooth. Stir it into the pan. Cover and let the mixture cook for ½ to 1 hour.

In another bowl, combine the biscuit mix, milk, and parsley. Take the batter out with a spoon and drop lumps into the simmering liquid. Cook for another 25 minutes without lifting the lid.

Check to see if the dumplings are done by pocking them with a toothpick. If the pick comes out clean, the cooking is done. Serve while hot by scooping it out with a ladle.
