Eat Your Veggies - Dutch Oven Dumplings

I'm not a gourmet cook.  I get a little nervous around people like my brother-in-laws who shop for ingredients I've never heard of! At our house, we are fanatical about good food but it is mostly simple country-style comfort food.

This recipe is favorite. Easy, fast, and SO yummy! I love that it is cooked in one pot. By changing different vegetables, meat, and seasonings, it will be different every time! A great way to use up odds and ends of different veggies from the garden.

4 cups broth
3-4 cups vegetables (green beans, peas, carrots, or corn)

In large pot or dutch oven, bring broth to boil. Add vegetables and cook for five minutes.

2 cups cooked diced chicken (or other cooked meat)
1 can cream chicken soup (of course, I use my homemade cream soup)

Stir in meat and soup. Add any other salt or seasonings as desired. I like a little thyme, poultry seasoning, and rosemary. Bring back to boil.

3 cups baking mix (like Bisquik)
1 cup milk

Mix baking mix, milk, and any additional herbs desired. Drop dough by spoon fulls into slowly boiling pot. Reduce heat to medium low, cook uncovered for 10 minutes. Cover and cook 10 minutes longer. Serve.

A baking mix makes this meal super quick. I'll share my homemade baking mix recipe tomorrow. But if you want to mix up some dumplings just for this dish, use this recipe.

Dumplings:
2 cup flour
1 tsp salt
3 tsp baking powder
1 egg
2/3 cup milk
Mix all dry ingredients. Stir in milk. Drop into boiling pot and proceed as above.
