Bacon Chicken and Dumplings


– 3 slices of bacon

– 3 large potatoes, peeled and diced

– 1 onion, diced

– 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves; diced

– 3 cups chicken broth

– 1 can corn (15.25 OZ), whole kernel, drained and rinsed.

– 3 cups half-and-half

– 1 1/2 cups biscuit mix

– 1 cup milk

 – 1 TSP poultry seasoning

– Salt and pepper; to taste


Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside; reserve bacon drippings in skillet. Add potatoes, onion and chicken to bacon drippings and cook for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Pour in chicken broth; season with poultry seasoning, salt and pepper. Stir in corn, and simmer all together for 15 minutes. Pour in half-and-half and bring to a boil; add crumbled bacon. In a medium bowl, combine biscuit mix with milk and mix well (dough should be thick). Drop tablespoon sizes of dough into boiling mixture; reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes uncovered, then another 10 minutes covered. (Note: Do not stir while simmering, or dumplings will break apart). Serve hot.
