Chicken & Dumplings

I came across this recipe a while ago and had to try it. My family absolutly loved it and has requested it many times since. It has a wonderful flavor and is easy to throw together. Just be warned, it is so good that you'll be temped to over eat!

Chicken and Dumplings from The Sister's Cafe

3 c. cooked chicken, cut into large pieces
½ c. butter
1/3 c. flour
½ tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
3 c. chicken broth
1 can cream of chicken soup (98% fat free variety works great)

2 c. flour
3 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
1 tsp poultry seasoning
1 tsp celery seed
¼ c. oil
1 c. milk

Blend butter, flour, salt and pepper in saucepan. Add chicken broth and cook until thick. Stir in cream of chicken soup and add cooked chicken. Put in a 9x13 pan. To prepare dumplings, mix all ingredients together and stir until moistened. Drop rounded spoonfuls onto chicken and gravy. Bake at 425° for 20-25 minutes.

I have made chicken and dumplings numerous times, the way my Mom made it, steaming the dumplings on top of the chicken and gravy. I decided to try this recipe, and it was really great. I used 6 boneless skinless thighs, and made all as indicated in the recipe.
There were 4 of us eating and I only had 2 "dumplings" and a bit of gravy left over.
My son, who is a chef, said it was wonderful, which I consider high praise.
Will use this recipe again,for sure.
Thanks for this recipe.
