Happy 2010!!

I can't believe another year is beginning. I guess the old adage is true; the older you get the quicker time passes! It seems like we were just celebrating the new 2009 new year. I am looking forward to a fantastic 2010 though!

This year, my hubby went hunting on New Year's Eve after work, so dinner was just me and the little man. L ended up taking a late nap, so I decided to make something I'd been craving for a while now: dumplings!

I'm not sure if this dish is really redneck or really lazy but I know it is really good! I absolutely love dumplings, but have never made them. I heard of people using canned biscuits to make quick and easy dumplings, but just wasn't sure how they would taste. Since I had some on hand, I decided to try it out. The only chicken I had was frozen and I was just too tired to defrost it and then worry about cooking it. Therefore, this is what I came up with and I will definitely make it again! Not sure if the hubby would like it though. It's not substantial enough for him. Maybe I'll use this recipe and add some chicken next time. I do love chicken and dumplings. :)

Dumpling Soup

Source: Me
Serves 1

1 1/2 cups Low Sodium Chicken Stock
2 canned biscuits
1 dash each of salt, freshly ground black pepper, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, dried Italian herb blend

Combine stock and seasonings in a small sauce pan and bring to a boil. Pinch off pieces of the biscuits and drop into the stock. Move dumplings around as they cook to make sure they don't stick to the bottom of the pan.

You may not want all the broth as soup, but you need at least a cup and half to get the dumplings to move around while they cook. You can refrigerate the broth and use it again later though. Or just eat all of it. That's what I did. ;)

All in all, Pretty easy, right? No muss, no fuss. I was really surprised at how good this turned out and really enjoyed my dinner!
