When I think of homestyle cooking, I usually think of some sort of chicken, carrot and pea dish. Either chicken noodle soup, chicken pot pies or, in this case, chicken and dumplings. You can really use whichever combination of vegetables and meat you want for a recipe like this. I chose these specific ones because I was moving out of my house and needed to use up the things in my fridge.
Rather than spending the time to make my own dumplings, I just bought some dough from the grocery store to top off the dish. This makes this recipe great for a busy weeknight; or if you are in the process of moving like I was. What’s even better? The leftovers are just as good the next day!
