Chicken and Dumplings

1 1/2 to 2 c. cooked chicken, chopped

8 c. chicken broth (if homemade you may want to add a couple of bouillon cubes)

1 small onion, chopped

2 carrots, chopped

1 stalk celery chopped

2 c. baking mix

2/3 c. milk, broth or water



Place vegetables and broth into a stock pot or dutch oven.  Add the broth and bring to a boil over high heat.  Reduce heat and cook for 15 minutes.  Combine baking mix and liquid in a large bowl, set aside.  After 15 minutes add chicken to the broth and vegetables and bring to a rolling boil.  Drop the baking mix mixture by spoonfuls into the boiling broth.  Allow broth to boil for another 10 minutes or so and then reduce heat to low and cover pot.  Simmer over low heat for another 15-20 minutes, until the dumplings are cooked through.
