Shortcut Chicken 'n' Dumplings

If you're looking for easy, homestyle comfort food, look no further than our Shortcut Chicken and Dumplings. This dish provides all of the warm and cozy taste you love without a lot of fuss in the kitchen. Simply boil skin-on chicken breasts with chicken broth with some fresh green beans, carrots, celery and onions. You can almost smell it already, can't you? After the chicken is cooked, you'll remove it and cut it into juicy chunks. Here come's the easy twist: refrigerated biscuits become the dumplings in your Shortcut Chicken and Dumplings! Flatten and cut the dough into strips and drop them into the boiling broth. Add Smith's Milk and a stick of margarine to make the broth rich and creamy, then drop the chicken back in during the last 10 minutes. That wasn't too hard, was it? Shortcut Chicken and Dumplings will be the quickest way to warm your family's hungry hearts!
