5 Minute Chicken and Dumplings

Chicken and dumplings are one of those recipes that you kinda cringe when thinking about making it. At least that’s what I did the other day when The Kid asked me to make it for dinner. It takes some time to make since it’s almost like making chicken stew first and then boiling or baking […]
