Chicken and Dumplings

This was a HUGE hit with my family!  We scarfed it up and there was enough leftovers that I just might chicken pot pies with it!

2 chicken breasts
1 T butter
1 can cream o' chicken
1/4 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp parsley
1/2 onion, diced
2 C mixed veggies
Chicken broth/stock
1 package biscuit dough

1. Place all ingredients, except biscuits in crockpot and fill with enough chicken broth to cover.
2. Place on high in crockpot 5-6 hours.  3 hours before serving drop torn biscuit dough in cooker.

I doubled this to feed my family, I might have even tripled it.  I used 6 breasts.  Before I put the dough in I shredded all my chicken with some forks

Creamy Bow Tie Alfredo

This is so stinkin' good!!  (For those of you not allergic to dairy!)  We scarfed a double batch with just our family and we made it for our family while camping a couple weeks ago and they scarfed it too! 

The recipe was taken from a kids cookbook that we got from the library.  Enjoy!

1 box/bag bow tie noodles
3/4 C heavy cream
3 T butter
1/2 C grated Parmesan (we used store bought)
1/2 C frozen peas
nutmeg (optional)

Start by cooking your pasta.  Toss with olive oil when done. 
Over medium heat, combine cream, parmesan cheese, butter, and seasonings.  Stir often until cheese and butter are melted. 
Reduce heat to med. low and simmer, stirring constantly, until thickened, about 15 minutes. 

Combine pasta and sauce and stir in cooked peas.  Top with more Parmesan!  So Good!!  Freezes well.  (That is what we did for camping)  We doubled the recipe and didn't have any leftovers! So a single recipe probably serves 2-3 adults.
