Chicken 'n Dumplin's

Happy Halloween!

Austin and I borrowed costumes from last year (because they were so good - not because we were lazy) and went 'costume climbing' at the gym on Tuesday.  Tonight we won't be doing anything fun because of work though - but I am trying to think of some fun "tricks" to teach in yoga tonight! 
When we were little we always dressed up as something really good (actually I think I was a witch almost every year) but then we had to cover up our costume with snowpants and our big winter coats because it was so cold.  This only got worse when we moved to Utah and kids just stopped trying altogether and 90% of them were "dressed up" as skiers or snowboarders. 

I thought the kiddos in DC would be luckier than we were, but then it snowed here on Saturday.  The snow didn't stick but it still gets me ready for winter. 

Even if you're one of those people who hates winter, there is at least one good thing about it: warm, heavy, satisfying meals.  These chicken 'n dumplin's are all of those things.  They're also easy!

These are so simple to make and the best part is that you'll only have one dish to clean when all is said and done.

Recipe from Mom
2 chicken breasts
1 qt chicken stock
salt & pepper
2 c Bisquick
2/3 c milk

1.  Chop your celery and onion.  Cut carrots into big chunks.  Add to a big stock pot.
2.  Cut your chicken into large pieces and add to pot.  Cover with chicken stock.
3.  Cook over medium heat until chicken is cooked through and there is no pink in the center.

4.  Mix Bisquick and milk together to form a sticky dough. 
5.  Drop by tablespoons on top of soup.  Bring to a boil and cook for 10 minutes, uncovered.  Cover and cook for 10 minutes more.
5.  Remove from heat and serve!
