Quick and Easy Chicken and Dumplings

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by knitaholic

Got this from a TOH cookbook (Fast Fixes with Mixes, or something like that). This is easy, tastes like it cooked all day, and is really good with leftover turkey, too. Even my 5yo dd LOVES the dumplings.

This turned out very good. I used leftover cooked chicken breasts and added some peas and green beans(also leftover). It was very easy to make and we loved the dumplings. Thanks for posting, knitaholic.
