When I started storing meals, I definitely took the saying to heart “Store what you eat, eat what you store.” One of our favorite meals is chicken and dumplings, therefore I stored...
Teaching the next generation. My son loves chicken & dumplings. His wife doesn't know how to make them. Last year I brought all the stuff over (100% for stored foods) & the grand children & I made chicken & dumplings. We had a blast. Everyone had two helpings, except the youngest one, who wanted more canned green beans.
This is my very first cookbook. It is probably 54 years old. Wow!
I still store Jiffy mix, don't hate me. I just like the convenience of the pre-made mix. I now store the mix in 1/2 gallon vacuum sealed canning jars. Those plastic jars are air permeable and will allow the mix to go rancid. So, here is what I pulled out this week to make chicken & dumplings.
Then I made and rolled out the dumplings nice & thin. The dumplings are just the biscuit recipe rolled out. 2 c. mix & 2/3 c. liquid. For the liquid, sometimes I use water, other times I use broth. Drop them in the broth and let them cook for about 5 minutes.
Then I added the canned chicken & cooked until piping hot. There you have it, a simply warm meal from storage. A super quick & easy meal in about 15 minutes.
