chicken and dumplings

a few days ago Nina requested chicken and dumplings.  in our household what Princess wants, Princess gets.  Mr. Wonderful and BOTH kids love this dish.

whole chicken (i used Tyson's small Young Chicken)
whole onion - peeled (don't cut or dice)
2x16.3 oz cans Grands! Flaky Layers Buttermilk rolls
15 oz can chicken broth
15 oz can Veg-all (or just a can of English Peas) don't drain
1/2 stick butter
salt and pepper to taste

rinse the chicken and place it in a large pot, completely covering with water.
add whole onion, boil and then simmer until chicken is done.  leave broth in the pot, but discard the onion.
place the chiken in a colander to cool.  then remove skin and bones.
put chicken meat back into the pot, adding 15 oz can of chicken broth, 15 oz can of Veg-all or peas, butter, salt and pepper.  bring it all to boil. then turn to simmer.
add Grands! dough one piece at a time (since i used Flaky Layers- i rounded each piece in a small ball)
cook for about 7 min.

Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!!!  do you have a favorite Dr. Seuss book?  i love There's a Wocket in My Pocket!  Nina even has a stuffed Zillow (you know, the one that's on the pillow and always helps her fall asleep?)

Nina's shirt available on my Etsy
she's such a poser!  we can't help it
