Dinner: Homemade Chicken amp Dumplings

4 years ago

this was one of the best meals i`ve made since i started cooking for myself in college! it`s been stressful getting situated this year since i moved into an apartment for the first time and i am without the full meal plan i had last year. now, i only have a partial meal plan which covers a lot of the sandwiches and coffees i grab to go in between classes, and for the most part i try and do all of my cooking. i like it more that way too since i know exactly what`s going into my food and into my body. at least at my dining hall, i know the food isn`t all that great for you.

tonight, i made chicken & dumplings. i used the recipe from the source link. mainly, i was looking to use up quite a bit of broth i have just sitting in the fridge waiting to be used up. (that`s probably the toughest part about cooking for myself... using up all the food i`m buying when i`m just cooking for myself or finding a way to store to them to try and make them last longer!)

the recipe was very simple. instead of celery, which i really dislike, i used canned tomatoes and peas and drained all the liquid from them. i used quite a bit, about half the can, and i halved the recipe. according to the reviews, the recipe also makes too many dumplings so i divided the dumpling recipe part by 4.

i really liked the meal! it was nice and creamy, and it heats you right up! it`s simple too, as long as you plan ahead for all the time that the recipe calls for just letting the soup simmer.

i actually made enough for two meals so i`ll be eating the other half for either lunch or dinner tomorrow. to reheat, i`ll probably dump everything back into a pan and reheat on the stove top instead of microwaving since i`m trying to avoid using the microwave as much as possible this year.

have you ever tried chicken & dumplings? do you have any recipes or suggestions for how i should use up my box of chicken broth? lol
