Chicken and Dumplings, in a grouchy hurry.

Yesterday I came home from work and needed some mothering, and comfort food. Being that I am the only mother around and I was a grouchy tired one, this is what I did and I am amazed at how good this tasted, and still does tonight as left overs.

2 Cans of Swanson Chicken Broth 14.5 oz.  - or your own broth if you have it on hand.
Chicken Thighs - boneless - 2 lbs
Parsley - dried - 2 tablespoons
6 carrots, peeled and diced
Mary B's Frozen Dumplings

I poured chicken broth in pot, added diced carrots and boneless chicken thighs, uncooked, with dried parsley.
Brought to boil. Added dumplings per instructions on package, covered and cooked 45 minutes.

While that was cooking I made a peach pie with Pillsbury refrigerated pie crust - but fresh peaches - and corn bread. I know, the dumplings and corn bread are double bread but yesterday called for that drastic of action - :) - anyway, the Chicken and Dumplings were great and easy, and comforting.

I needed it.
