Chicken and Dumplings has always been one of my favorite dinners, and I am not a fan of hardly any kind of soup. This recipe is also one of the recipes that my gramma never typed or gave me. My kids ate several variations of chicken and dumplings until I finally figured out how to make my gramma's chicken & dumplings ~ enjoy!
I think every recipe that we post is a family favorite... and this one is always on our monthly menu ~ because, yes, I plan everything! It drives my oldest daughter crazy but makes life easier while saving money ~ with the bonus of annoying my daughter.
Here is our version of super easy and crazy delicious Chicken Bog. I have always thought it a strange name for such a great dish. We heard a variety of stories about how this fantastic chicken dish came to be named "bog" ~ everything from being soggy rice and chicken to chicken bogged in rice. Whichever is the real story, this dish never disappoints! The secret is to cook the garlic, onions, and rice in chicken broth, then add the vegetables to the simmer. It's just heavenly!
*A more traditional version includes Parmesan cheese rind (boiled in the broth then removed when the rice is soft and crumbles when the dish is done) and for carrots only rather than mixed vegetables. Remember, if you use fresh carrots you will need to cook them a bit longer than frozen carrots.
Dessert: Buttermilk Pie ~ because of it's lemony twang, buttermilk pie is great way to finish this meal.
We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
