Today’s Menu: Leftover Chicken and Dumplings and Cornbread

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Partly sunny and 74 degrees outside today, 80 degree weather and dry on the way! I had to stick close to the phone and house. We are having trouble with our phone and cable TV and I had to wait around for the repairman to call and arrive. It was finally dry enough for them to mow our grass, and it needs it! It’s been so wet out that you couldn’t mow it. Did a few things around the house. For Dinner tonight its Leftover Chicken and Dumplings! No way these leftovers were going to go to waste! Mom makes the best Chicken and Dumplings there is! I have many an old room mate through the years that will back that up. I left the original post from yesterday for recipe and intsruction. Take care all!

My Mom is making her Chicken and Dumplings for Dinner Tonight! She used Bisquick Heart Smart Mix for the Dumplings and Tyson Split Chicken Breasts for the Chicken. She first made the Dumplings using a recipe found on Bisquick Boxes. Made those and set them aside until ready to use. My Grandmother and Mom both have used this same recipe since it came out on the Bisquick boxes.

 

For the Chicken. She boiled the Chicken Breasts in a pot until they were done adding more water to them twice. After the Chicken was cooked she removed them from the pot and roughly shredded it. Returned it to the pot of Broth or Stew and added the Dumplings, reducing the heat. Cooked the two together uncovered for 10 minutes and then another 12 minutes covered until they were done.

As I said these Dumplings just melt in your mouth! Just incredible flavor with the Chicken being moist and adding it’s flavor. Plus that incredible and thick broth that’s created while its all cooking is the thing that ties it all together! I can’t have these often, having Diabetes 2, but once in a while is just fine! It’s hard to resist these pillowy Dumplings of goodness!

 

As the Chicken and Dumplings were cooking I made the Cornbread. I made a small Cast iron Skillet of Cornbread. As always I used Martha White Corn Meal Mix, something I think I could eat everymeal. I like a nice fresh and hot slice with Butter on it. When I make this I just make it by the instructions on the package but I only use half the ingredients because I use a small cast iron skillet to make it. I use Egg Beaters and Extra Virgin Oil instead of Eggs and Vegetable Oil the recipe calls for. Bake at 450 degrees for about 25 minutes and you have some golden brown piping hot Cornbread! If you use a small cast iron skillet just cut the recipe in half and it comes out just right for the skillet size. What a dinner tonight! For Dessert/Snack a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels and a Sprite Zero to drink.

One of America’s Favorites – Chicken and Dumplings

Chicken and dumplings

Chicken and dumplings is a soup that consists of a chicken cooked in water, with the resulting chicken broth being used to cook the dumplings by boiling. A dumpling—in this context—is a biscuit dough, which is a mixture of flour, shortening, and liquid (water, milk, buttermilk, or chicken stock). The dumplings are either rolled out flat, dropped or formed into a ball.

It is a popular comfort food dish, commonly found in the Southern and Midwestern United States, that is also attributed to being a French Canadian meal that originated during the Great Depression. Some sources say that chicken and dumplings originated in the Southern United States during antebellum era and was considered a mainstay during harsh economic times. One of the earliest versions of the recipe was cornmeal dumplings cooked with turnip greens. Chicken and dumplings as a dish is prepared with a combination of simmered chicken meat, broth produced by simmering the chicken, multiple dumplings, and salt and pepper for seasoning. Sometimes finely chopped vegetables, such as carrots and celery, are added to the broth, and herbs such as dill, parsley, thyme, or chives are added to the dumpling dough.

Various commercial preparations of chicken and dumplings are available, including canned and frozen versions of the prepared dish. Frozen raw dumplings, typically very flat strips about 1×4 inches, can be cooked in any broth. The consistency of the prepared dish, whether homemade or purchased, varies from a thin soup to a very thick casserole-like consistency, easily eaten with a fork. Thicker preparations are made by gently simmering the dumplings longer and/or adding flour or another thickening agent directly to the broth. Flour tortillas or canned biscuits, rolled thin on a floured surface, cut into strips, are a quick and easy substitute for homemade dough. Butter may be added to the recipe for added richness. Since chicken meat would become dry and tough if it is boiled long enough to cook the dumplings and thicken the broth, the chicken or parts are removed from the broth before adding the dumplings. While the dumplings are cooking, the meat is separated from the bones. When the dumplings are done and the broth seasoned and thickened, the chicken is returned to the broth. The dish is then ready to be served, but may be kept on low heat so as to not further cook the chicken.

Variations

Chicken and dumplings with vegetables

A variant known as “chicken and pastry” or simply “chicken pastry” features wide, flat noodles rolled from biscuit dough. Where such a distinction is made, it is sometimes considered a different dish from “chicken and dumplings”, which is known for small balls of dough rather than flat strips. In the Appalachian region of the United States, this preparation is called chicken and slicks. The Pennsylvania Dutch version is called bott boi. Chicken and dumpling soup is another variation, and is very popular in the Midwest.

Bott boi
Pennsylvania Dutch bott boi is a soup popular in central and southeastern Pennsylvania, also called chicken and dumplings in the American south. Bearing no resemblance to the baked dish known elsewhere as pot pie (itself known within Pennsylvania as “meat pies”), bott boi consists of large square noodles and a meat such as chicken, ham, or beef simmered in stock. Other common ingredients include potatoes, carrots, or celery. Saffron may also be added as a flavoring, particularly in Pennsylvanian restaurants catering to a niche market among the Pennsylvania Dutch farming communities.

Created to use up leftovers, Pennsylvania Dutch pot pie developed from the more widespread baked variety. Its characteristic noodles were added as a staple of the Pennsylvania Dutch and English diets. The ease of preparing it in large quantities has made it popular for fundraisers, community dinners, and other large-scale preparations.

Preparation
Bott boi is a soup of thick square-cut dough boiled in chicken broth. (Turkey or other poultry can be substituted for the chicken.) Potatoes and various vegetables may be added, and the broth can also be seasoned with saffron. The simple dough is made from flour and eggs, with a little water or milk.

 

Kitchen Hint of the Day!

Making Chicken and Dumplings……………………….

How do you thicken homemade chicken and dumplings? – Add flour or cornstarch to a mixing bowl and stir in enough cold water to form a thin paste with no lumps. It takes 3 to 4 tablespoons to thicken thin broth in a large pot, but use 1 or 2 tablespoons of thickening agent for a small pot or if you only want to thicken it slightly. My Grandmother made the best!

Today’s Menu: Leftovers – Chicken and Dumplings and Cornbread

 

To start my morning off I Scrambled some Egg Beater’s Egg Whites, heated up a couple of Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, toasted a slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I really enjoy the Egg Beater’s Egg Whites, they Scramble up perfect and are only 25 calories per serving (1 serving is 1/4 cup which is equal to 1 Egg) Outside had a couple of showers with a high of 83 degrees, and humid. Before the showers moved in later in the day I raked the front and side yard. Lot of leaves already. Then got the leaf blower and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. That was about my day today. For Dinner tonight Leftovers!

No way could I let these Chicken and Dumpling leftovers go to waste! I know the carbs and calories are bit higher than I like but just had to have them one more time! I had a light Breakfast and just a 1/2 an Apple for Lunch to even up everything a bit. I’ve left the original post from last night below for recipe directions.

 

My Mom is making her Chicken and Dumplings for Dinner Tonight! She used Bisquick Heart Smart Mix for the Dumplings and Amish Chicken Breasts for the Chicken. She first made the Dumplings using a recipe found on Bisquick Boxes. Made those and set them aside until ready to use.

 

 

 

 

For the Chicken. She boiled the Skinles Chicken Breasts in a pot until they were done adding more water to them twice. After the Chicken was cooked she removed them from the pot and roughly shredded it. Returned it to the pot of Broth or Stew and added the Dumplings, reducing the heat. Cooked the two together uncovered for 10 minutes and then another 12 minutes covered until they were done.

 

 

 

 

As I said these Dumplings just melt in your mouth! Just incredible flavor with the Chicken being moist and adding it’s flavor. I can’t have these often, having Diabetes 2, but once in a while is fine!

 

 

 

 

 

As the Chicken and Dumplings were cooking I made the Cornbread. I made a small Cast iron Skillet of Cornbread. As always I used Martha White Corn Meal Mix, something I think I could eat every meal. I like a nice fresh and hot slice with Butter on it. When I make this I just make it by the instructions on the package but I only use half the ingredients because I use a small cast iron skillet to make it.

Today’s Menu; Chicken and Dumplings and Cornbread

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Thomas Light 100% Whole Grain English Muffin that I topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Partly cloudy with rain later in the afternoon, high of 90 degrees. Did a load of laundry and some light house cleaning. Then spent most of the afternoon writing an appeal letter to my insurance over my policy increase and balance of over $7,000. My insurance has been one big screw up! All I can do is wait and see what happens with the Appeal. On top of that I had to go the Dentist, which I can’t stand doing. But had no choice I’ve got a cavity. More on that later. Anyway a real Dinner treat tonight! My Mom is making her melt-in-your mouth Chicken and Dumplings and some Cast Iron Skillet Cornbread.

Today’s Menu: Reames Chicken and Dumplings and Sliced Carrots

 

 

 

For Breakfast I prepared a packet of Pioneer Peppered White Gravy. I also toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain bread, fried 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, and had my Morning Cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mom was gone most of the day so I stayed home to keep an eye on Dad. Did some house work and outside got the leaf blower out and cleaned the deck and driveway area off. With everything done I kicked back and watched some shows I had recorded. For Dinner tonight I prepared Reames Chicken and Dumplings and Sliced Carrots.

 

 

Here’s another one I haven’t prepared in a long time, Reames Chicken and Dumplings. Why i can’t tell you, the Noodle/Dumplings are fantastic to use! While at Meijer I seen a package of these in the Frozen Foods and grabbed a package. To prepare the dish I’ll need; 2 tablespoons Extra Light Olive Oil, 3 Perdue Perfect Portions Boneless, Skinless chicken breasts (cut into 3/4″ chunks), 1 quart (32oz) Swanson Low Sodium Chicken Broth, 1 tablespoon Parsley flakes, 1/2 teaspoon Black pepper, and 1 bag (12oz) Reames Frozen Flat Dumplings.

 

 

I’m using Perdue Perfect Portions Boneless and Skinless Chicken Breasts. I love using these. Their individually wrapped, perfect size, and cook up perfectly. To prepare it; In a large pot, heat oil, add Chicken and cook until chicken is slightly browned.

 

 

 

 

Add Broth, Parsley and Pepper, Bring mixture to a boil. Add Reames Frozen Flat Dumplings, stirring to separate, return to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 25 min. Stir occasionally to prevent dumpling from sticking. Or until dumplings are desired tenderness. All done, and serve! I’ve got to remember to have these more often! They always turn out so good. Easy to prepare and an excellent Noodle. They go perfect with Chicken.

 

 

 

I also heated up a can of Del Monte Sliced Carrots. Just empty the contents into a small sauce pan , bring it to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer until heated through. For Dessert later a Jello Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

Chicken and Dumplings

Chicken and Dumplings

Although the dumpling has been around for many generations, each culture has its own way of individualizing the basic dumpling recipe. There are other international versions of chicken and dumplings. For instance, the Chinese culture has the wonton, which is similar to the chicken and dumplings dish as we know it today. Additionally, the Iranian-Jewish dish, called gondi, includes matzah ball dumplings, which are also common in Central European food.

Since the creation of the dumpling, various meats aside from chicken have accompanied it, such as beef, lamb and pork.

 
A variant known as “chicken and pastry” or simply “chicken pastry” features wide, flat noodles rolled from biscuit dough. Where such a distinction is made, it is sometimes considered a different dish from “chicken and dumplings”, which is known for small balls of dough rather than flat strips.

Today’s Menu: Chicken and Dumplings w/ Corn Bread

Tried something new for dinner tonight. I made some Chicken and Dumplings w/ Corn Bread. I used Reames Homestyle Flat Dumplings, first time I tried them and will be using them again. easy to fix and 170 calories and 35 carbs. The carbs could be lower but not bad for noodles plus the other ingredients for the Dumplings aren’t very high in calories or carbs. Along with the noodles I used Miller’s Amish Chicken Breasts (3 pieces), sliced Mini Carrots, and Diced New Potatoes.

 

I boiled the Chicken seasoning it with Sea Salt, Pepper, Thyme, and Ground Smoked Cumin. After the Chicken was done I pulled each breast aprt.I also boiled the Mini Carrots ahead of time also along with boiling the Diced New Potatoes. Before putting on the noodles I made the Cornbread. i tried Marie Callender’s Low Fat Original Corn Bread, first time I tried this also. This was a breeze to fix also just add 1 1/2 cups water to the one pouch of Corn Bread Mix and mix throughly. Pour into a 8″x8″x2″ pan and bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes. Came out very moist and delicious. After getting the Corn Bread in the oven I started boiling the Dumplings, boil for 30 minutes. With about 8 minutes left to boiling the Dumplings I added the Carrots, Diced Potatoes, and Chicken Breast meat and continued to boil for the 30 minutes. As i said it was the first time I had used the Reames Dumplings and Marie Callender’s Corn Bread mix and I’ll be using both again as both turned out great. For dessert later a Yoplait Delight Chocolate Eclair Parfait.
