Best Night Ever...with Chicken and Dumplings!

So tonight goes on my top 10 list of great nights.... Watching Julie and Julia, and eating homemade chicken and dumpling, college style! Now don't worry of course I'm going to share it with ya'll... so here it goes!

This recipe is from my mother's cookbook. I love this book, it's practically falling apart, recipes torn out and stuck back in random spots, it's the best! It was created by my grandmother( or Gran as I call her) when my mom got married and moved off!

What you need:
- 2 chicken breast thawed
- 3 cans of low sodium chicken broth
- one can of biscuits ( not the flaky kind)
- pepper and salt to taste

So first you need to bring both your water and broth to a boil in separate pans. Once the water comes to a boil place your chicken breast in the water for about 20 minutes or till the chicken is firm to the touch. Take your chicken out to cool off before handling. After cooling, using your fingers shread the chicken into bite size pieces.

While you are waiting for the water and broth, take your biscuits and cut them into fourths( as seen in the previous picture). Depending on the size of your biscuits, you might want to cut them smaller because they puff up!
Now add your biscuit pieces slowly till they are all combined. Wait 5-10 minutes for biscuits to puff up and cook.
Then add your chicken back with the dumplings, bring to a boil and ENJOY!!

Almost like mom's, maybe better, and definately easier!
