Dumplings

I love, love, love, dumplings, these are like fluffy little clouds of goodness! 
Check out Wikipedia for a little geographic lesson on dumplings!

Ingredients

half a dozen chicken legs
1 cup of chopped celery
1 cup carrots, sliced into medallions
1 small onion, sliced
Salt and pepper to taste
2 1/2 cups Original Bisquick mix
2/3 cup milk
Enough water to cover all ingredients

Directions

In a large pot, place chicken legs, celery, carrot, onion salt/pepper and water
Cover and heat to boiling; reduce heat
Simmer about 2 hours or until juice of chicken is clear when thickest part is cut to bone
Remove chicken and vegetables from pot
Skim fat from broth
return broth to boil
mix Bisquick and milk, form small balls of dough
drop dough by spoonfuls into broth
Cook uncovered over low heat 10 minutes
(don't put too many in the broth or they'll stick together)

Keep stirring so dumplings don't stick together
when done with dumplings, add chicken and vegetables; reduce heat to low.
Heat about 20 minutes or until hot.

Stay hungry my friend!
