My head was not in the game today. For starters I must have set my phone's alarm wrong because it didn't go off. New phones are such a love/hate situation. Thank goodness the girls didn't have school today. Then I made my first cup of coffee and went to let the dog out. When I returned I had a cup of hot water. *hmm* I used coffee grounds for my next cup. Much better. When the kiddos finally did wake up we did the grocery shopping. Which for some reason was $50 less than normal. We may or may not be eating later this week even though I checked the list twice. This afternoon I wanted to start the popcorn strings so I popped the popcorn. Oh, I'm sorry I mean I burned the popcorn kernels. Threw them away and started another batch. Burned them too. Gave up on that task for the day. Finally while making dinner I just couldn't follow directions. *lol* I have had enough already and shall retire to the living with a hot chocolate (and peppermint snchapps) and call it a day.
3 slices bacon
3 large potatoes, peeled and diced
1 onion, diced
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, diced
3 cups chicken broth
1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
salt and pepper to taste
1 (15.25 oz) can whole kernel corn, drained and rinsed
3 cups half and half
1-1/2 cups biscuit mix
1 cup milk
Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside; reserve bacon drippings in skillet. Add potatoes, onion and chicken to bacon drippings and cook for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Pour in chicken broth; season with poultry seasoning, salt and pepper. Stir in corn, and simmer all together for 15 minutes. Pour in half-and-half and bring to a boil; add crumbled bacon. In a medium bowl, combine biscuit mix with milk and mix well (dough should be thick). Drop tablespoon sizes of dough into boiling mixture; reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes uncovered, then another 10 minutes covered. (Note: Do not stir while simmering, or dumplings will break apart). Serve hot.
