An easy, thrifty recipe using Bisquick that I found in a little booklet I forgot I had. It's titled Strictly Thrifty Menus from Betty Crocker. I'm putting them all on here for safe keeping.

Thank you for posting this recipe! I've been making this dish for over 30 years, but lost the exact recipe a long time ago. It is so easy and delicious!! I always make this for friends and family when they're in need of comfort food. It never fails to impress with the light herb dumplings. I've always deglazed the pan with a little white wine, added chunks of carrots, and use Cream of Mushroom soup good!!
