This week, I made a Super Simple Chicken and Dumplings Recipe that we just loved! My BFF {we call each other Sisters, because we don’t have any by blood!} sent me a text with this recipe after she made it for her family. My Husband fell in love {ya’ll know he has a thing for Lee Drummond aka Pioneer Woman right?!?}. Anyhow, as I’ve said it before, Lee doesn’t have anything on me ;).

This Chicken & Dumplings Recipe is the perfect go to comfort food on a cool fall or winters night!

  1. In a large pot add 2 tablespoons of butter and let melt. Brown the chicken with a generous amount of salt and pepper. Once the chicken has a skin on it, add in the vegetables. Gently pour 2-3 cups of water at a time until all the ingredients are bathing in the water. Gently boil for 1 hour.
  2. About a half hour before serving make your dumplings in a bowl. Sprinkle your work surface and rolling pin with cake flour. Roll the dough out until it's about ½" think. Using a pizza cutter (or sharp knife) cut 2" diamond shapes (just got diagonally). Add the dumplings into the pot and let cook for 10-15 minutes.
