Moo Shu Vegetables
This vegetarian version of the classic Chinese stir-fry, Moo Shu, uses already-shredded vegetables to cut down on the prep time. Serve with warm whole-wheat tortillas, Asian hot sauce and extra hoisin if desired…….
Vietnamese-Style Beef and Noodle Broth
Inspired by pho—a traditional Vietnamese soup—this one-pot meal is garnished with crunchy mung bean sprouts and chopped fresh basil. You could also serve it with lime wedges and a bottle of Asian chile sauce, such as sriracha, on the side…..
Sichuan-Style Chicken with Peanuts
The piquant Sichuan Sauce (which doubles easily) works well with almost any stir-fry but particularly enhances dishes with meat, fish and poultry. When stir-frying chicken, always spread the pieces in the wok and let them cook undisturbed for 1 minute before stirring. This allows the chicken to sear and prevents sticking. To smash the ginger, use the side of a cleaver or chef’s knife……..

Chicken and dumplings is a dish which 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 formed into a ball, rolled out flat or dropped.
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. Chicken and dumplings as a dish is prepared with a combination of boiled chicken meat, broth produced by boiling the chicken, multiple dumplings, and salt and pepper for seasoning. In some areas, this meal is known as chicken and sliders.
The name of the dish is sometimes printed on menus as “chicken n dumplings”, “chicken ‘n’ dumplings”, or “chicken-n-dumplings”. “Dumplings” is sometimes spelled “dumplins” in this context.
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 boiling 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.
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. In the Appalachian region of the United States, this preparation is called chicken and slicks.

Today’s Menu: Chicken and Dumplings
Well it was my first attempt to make Chicken and Dumplings and if I do say so myself they turned out pretty tasty! I come from a long line of Chicken and Dumplings makers. My Grandmother, Ida, made the most delicious Dumplings ever! Big and fluffy melt in your mouth Dumplings. Then my Mom took over the as Dumpling maker and her’s are just as good! Mine for a first attempt wasn’t nearly as good as any of theirs but they weren’t too bad at all. I used Bisquick Heart Smart Mix for the Dumplings and Chicken Breasts as my Chicken. To make the Stew I boiled the Chicken Breasts in a pot until they were done adding more water to them twice. After the Chicken was cooked I removed it from the pot and roughly shredded it. I returned it to the pot and added my Dumplings, reducing the heat, that I had made while the Chicken was boiling. I boiled the two together uncovered for 10 minutes and then another 12 minutes covered until they were done. Practice makes perfect so I’ll be making them again. I left the recipe for the Dumplings at the end of the post. For dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Ice Cream topped with Sliced Mangos.
2/3 Cup Bisquick Heart Smart Mix
3 Tbsp Fat Free Skim Milk, I actually used about 3 1/2 to 4 Tbsp
*Stir Ingredients until soft dough forms.
*Drop by spoonfuls into boiling stew; reduce heat.
*Cook uncovered 10 minutes; cover and cook 10 minutes or until done.
