Old Time Chicken with Bisquick Dumplings
Cindie Stewart @shindii
- chicken, whole and all insides and neck removed
- bay leaves, dried
- 1 medium
- white or yellow onion, whole
- 2 or 3
- chicken bouillon cubes (optional)
- 4 c
- bisquik mix
- 1 1/3 c
Also, remove the onion, using a spoon is easiest, and the bay leaves from the water and discard. The onion can be used for seasoning if you'd still like more onion flavor.
You can use a whole chicken (like I do, since that's what I grew up seeing and doing) or you can use boneless pieces like the breasts, legs, thighs, or whatever parts you want. If you don't use a whole chicken, I'd suggest using the skinless pieces since it's easier to just rip apart and throw in the part without having to deal with skinning it as well.
I don't normally put any vegetables in it besides the onion, but when I do, I normally throw in carrots (shredded, julienne, or chopped) and celery for some added nutrients. It's completely up to you though! You can probably added corn, green beans, broccoli, etc in it if you really wanted to.
Thanks for all the comments! I read each and every one of them and all the great feedback makes me want to create more recipes and even share any family recipes I come across! <3
