I’m pretty sure when my grandmother reads this recipe (yes, my grandmother visits my blog and uses Facebook daily) I’m going to hear something like, “Cheater, cheater, chicken and dumplin’ eater.” No one makes chicken and dumplin’s (we forego the ‘g’ down here) quite like my grandmother. Dozens of little ladies in my childhood church and during the yearly festival made chicken and dumplings, and I dare say none can hold a candle to my grandmother’s. They were a food staple in my childhood, and they’re definitely a staple in many southern households. I’m sure this is because they aren’t expensive and you can make them in large batches to feed a crowd. It wasn’t uncommon that my grandmother would inexpensively feed 20 or more on a Sunday after church. Preparing them can be time consuming if you include preparing your own chicken stock and rolling out the dough. This cheater version of Chicken and Dumplings is made with Campbell’s Creamy Herb and Garlic with Chicken Stock. The Campbell’s Soup helps you get this southern favorite to the table faster and with less work. They’re easy and quick enough for a weekday evening dinner, satisfying enough for Sunday supper.
