Homemade Creamy Chicken and Dumplings | Country Cooking Recipes

Creamy Chicken & Dumplings

1 lb chicken breasts
10 bouillon cubes
2 quarts water
2 cups bisquick
2/3 cups milk
2 tbsp butter
4 eggs
2 stalks celery
Place chicken breasts & bouillon cubes in a large pot & cover with 2 quarts of water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium and simmer for 20-25 mins until chicken is done.
Meanwhile, boil the eggs. Then mix together the bisquick and milk until soft dough forms. When chicken is done, remove from pot and set aside. Drop spoonfuls of dough into the chicken stock. Simmer over low heat, covered, for 10 mins, then uncovered for 10 mins.
Meanwhile, dice 2-4 stalks of celery until you have approximately 1/2 – 1 cup of diced celery. Cut or shred chicken into bit sized pieces. Saute celery in 2 tbsp of butter for a couple of mins. Add in chicken & season well with salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Add the chicken and celery to the soup. Remove yolk from boiled eggs and chop whites and add to soup. Stir all to combine. Serves 4.

Homemade Old Fashioned Lemonade

1 cup water
1 cup sugar
Juice from 4-6 lemons
4 cups cold water


Blend 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar well in small
saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently,
until sugar dissolves completely. Let cool and 
refrigerate. Mix the syrup well with the juice
from 4-6 lemons (strained or not, as you like)
and stir well. Add 4 cups cold water and mix. Try
using sparkling water for some fizz! Pour into
thermos or large jug, adding thin lemon slices 
if you'd like. I like to make more lemonade and
freeze it in ice cube trays, adding the cubes to
the lemonade so it's never diluted.

Yield: 6 Servings
