Chicken & Dumplings Anyone?

Here's an easy recipe for Chicken & Dumplings........sure to warm you on those cold days and nights.
  • 1 whole chicken
  • 2 large cans Cream of Chicken soup
  • 2 onions chopped
  • 1 pkg. frozen English Peas
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons of Poultry seasoning
  • salt/pepper (whatever you are comfortable with)
  • 1/2 stick butter or your favorite margarine
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 pkg. flour Tortillas
  • In a large pot, boil a whole chicken for about 3 hours (this allows the chicken to just fall off the bone). Make sure that the chicken is fully covered in water (you could use chicken stock but tap water works just as well).  Add salt, pepper and poultry seasonings as the chicken boils.
  • After chicken is done, remove from pot, lower heat allow the pot to continue to simmer.
  • De-boning is very easy.  Use a pair of tongs and a fork to remove the chicken from the bones. It should nearly fall off.  Rake chicken with fork to shred it then place chicken back into pot.
  • Add chopped onion, butter, cans of Cream of Chicken, milk and frozen English peas; simmer while working on next step. 
  • Stack 5 tortillas on top of one another and slice into think strips (1/2 to 1 inches).  Another option is to cube the tortillas.  Place into the pot then repeat process.  If you love the dumplings, 10 tortillas is plenty.
  • Allow to simmer for another 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  • Serve with cornbread hot out of the over......YUMMY!
  • Feeds a family of 8 with loads of leftovers!
