Snow Day Chicken ‘n Dumplins  (or Sandee’s Chicken ‘n Dumplins)

3 chicken breasts

1 can low-sodium chicken broth

2 cans biscuits (original, not buttery)

  • Cook 3 chicken breasts by boiling or about 45 minutes in large pot (fill slightly less than ½ full with water).
  • Take chicken out and cut into small pieces and put back in pot. Add salt and paper and a can of low-sodium chicken broth.
  • Take 2 cans of biscuits (original, not buttery), and put on a piece of wax paper.
  • Flatten biscuits with hand about the size of a saucer and roll in flour (flour will help thicken the broth).
  • Get the chicken back to a rolling boil, leave on high, and tear the biscuits apart into large pieces, about 3 dumplings per biscuit.
  • By the time the last biscuit is in, they are done!
  • Add more salt and pepper to taste.
