Chicken and Dumplings

A friend of mine had surgery yesterday and her boyfriend (who is one of my best friends) could burn water when he attempts to cook. So the wife volunteered me that there will be piping hot food for her when she gets home from the hospital. I had left over Spatchcock chicken from Monday so chicken and dumplings it was.

Sorry about measurements I have never been well in that department. I parted out my chicken and removed all the skin. I used the skin as a substitute for EVOO when I was sautéing up diced onion, Garlic and a little rosemary, after I they started to glaze some I added a tab of butter and then flour to create a roux. Slowly added some heavy whipping cream, and then proceed to add chicken broth, about 5 cans. Added diced carrots and peas (hate celery, but added celery salt). 
Cooked for almost 3.5 hours at 350 indirect. I had a can of buttermilk biscuits so I used that as my dumplings because I was in a hurry (next time I will go homemade). Cooked another 30min and loaded up the car and drove the mile to there house.
 Was a fantastic comfort food and my friend was super excited (might of been the pain meds talking). Also I did remove the chicken skin out of the pot.

    About 30 min or so, I thnk they kept cooking even after I pulled it off the egg. We didn't eat till probably 30 or so after I pulled the pot off and every thing was still hot.

    Awesome! I would love a big bowl of that with a side of pain meds right now ;)


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    If I ever have to have surgery (or my wife) will you bring us chicken and dumplings? Looks really tasty. Hey, when are we going to grab drinks again? I'm out this weekend as I have to work.

    @griffin yes I will bring you chicken and dumplings, as long as you let me cook chicken wings on your mini. 
    I'm around next weekend and always ready for drinks in the afternoon. I hope the cold is over and we start getting days like today.

    You can cook whatever you want on my mini. I'll talk with my event coordinator, but I'm pretty sure I'll be free next weekend and always down for day drinking. Fingers crossed for some patio weather.

    Well now I just feel left out that we weren't all invited to have drinks with @Griffin and cook on his mini.

    @smokeypitt don't worry I will send out a mass invite and we will start a new Salado in @griffin back yard. His dogs will love all the goodies dropped on the ground.
