This morning....like all other mornings...I was in a rush getting to work!
Looking in the fridge, I spot 3/4 of a rotisserie chicken from Sam's Club, 2 tubes of Pillsbury Buttermilk Biscuits, 4 stalks of celery, and I then grabbed an Onion from the pantry..No carrots were anywhere to be found. I take 2 Chicken-Flavored Boullion cubes, throw everything in a bag, then head off to work...
Since I had to work till 8:00 tonight, I decided to have a late lunch...About 2:00 pm I got my hot plate out, cranked it to high, and commenced to boil 2 qts. of water. I added the chopped up onion and celery, salt and pepper..with a pinch of dill seed and thyme, and boiled it for 10 minutes.
While this stuff was cooking, I de-boned the chicken, and set it aside..
I then made some gravy fixin's (4 heaping spoonfulls of flour disolved and stirred up till the lumps are out..in COLD I repeat...COLD water).
Oh Yeah, I had put the boullion cubes in also. But when the stuff came to a boil, thats when you gradually stir in the thickening goop, after adding the chicken.
It turns to a nice Golden Gravy, and it is quite edible now. But this is when you open the biscuits and drop them on top of the boiling stew. Cover the top, and wait 12-15 minutes.
Honest to God, it's as good as any home cooked Chicken and Dumplin's that you'll get...
And it was cooked on a counter, on a hot plate. Of course I shared!!!!...hehehehe
