Genre: Cookbook:

The recipe I chose to make for this stop on the tour was the Chicken & Dumplings recipe. The entire process is super simple and makes a very tasty meal. I actually made the recipe twice. The first time I prepared the recipe was August 8, 2018. One of the ingredients is chicken stock but I only had a carton of low sodium chicken broth. I also used heart healthy Bisquick for the dumplings. The chicken and dumplings turned out absolutely wonderful and delicious.

 The second time I prepared the recipe was September 4, 2018. I actually used chicken stock this time. I used heart healthy Bisquick for the dumplings again. 

I really enjoyed the chicken and dumplings using the stock and the chicken broth. There were subtle differences in taste but both were flavorful. We were able to get 2 days worth of meals both times I prepared the recipe. The dumplings were just as good the next day as they were the first. 

I highly recommend this cookbook!
