Spring is on the Way In the Mornin'

March 04

Have you noticed that it is getting Lighter in Mornin" (ha, ha, to those in on the "mornin'" joke). Anyway, it is daylight savings this Sunday. Remember to get up at 2:00 a.m. and set your clock ahead so YOU ARE NOT LATE FOR CHURCH!. (Another ha, ha for many of my readers).
Well, Joe was sick today--bad stuff of throwing up and diarrea-man I don't want that crap, so Peter and I deferred on taking the boys tonight. But I did make tomorrow's supper, in part, and it is a good recipe. So I give it to you here. This is for left over baked chicken.
Some left over baked chicken, off the bone and cut up in pieces.
Make a White Sauce.
Half a stick of butter (1/4 c.)
Melt in a sauce pan.
About 1/4 cup of flour, more or less, depending. Mix over heat.
Keep heat on medium.
Add milk slowly and beat with a wire whisk or fork.
It will thickenen up right away with the milk, but keep adding and stirring over heat until it is a nice thickness you like.
Then i like to add some soups, but you don't have to. I like to add cream of chicken and cream of mushroom soups from cans. Add more milk if desired.
When it is a gravy consistantsy, add the cut up leftover chicken, canned pimentos for color, canned mushrooms if you like. At the end add frozen peas.
Bisquick. The recipe is on the side of the box. 2 cups bisquick and 2/3 cup milk. Mix. Spoon over the boiling chicken mixture and reduce heat. Cook uncovered 10 minutes. Cover and cook 10 more minutes. This will give you the best and fluffiest dumplings on earth!
This will be a first for the boys. I like to have mashed potatoes with this to put the extra gravy over.
