I have a reciepr but there is no spinach in but I guess you can add what ever.
1 lb. carrots, 4 celery stalks, 4-5 boneless skinless chiken breast.( I also have used a whole chicken and cooked to then picked the meat off) bisquick, milk, a dash of celery seed, salt and pepper to taste.
peel and chop carrots and celery
put water in a large pot and place vegetables and chicken in the pot.
add salt and pepper cook till tender take chicken breast out and let cool acouple of minutes., pull chicken apart place back in the pot.
I medium bowl add bisquick and milk, make sure the dough is firm and not sticky.
Add a dash of celery seed. and mix together pull dough into pieces and drop into the pot with the veggies and chicken. make sure you stir the pot while you are dropping the dough in the pot...it really makes a difference. Lower heat and cook 10 - 15 minutes longer and enjoy.

I have a recipe that takes hours and a quick one I use quite often.. For the quick one i saute up some diced chicken breasts with onion celery and carrots I season the chicken with poultry seasoning and pepper. then i add 2 cans of cream of chicken adn 2 cans of chicken broth (they so make both of these without MSG, but they can be a little harder to find) once everything somes to a boil I let it simmer for about 10 minutes and then add flour tortillas cut into noodle sized strips (the thicker "american" style brands work better like Mission). you let the tortillas cook for about 10-15 minutes and voila there you have it. And its sooo good!

HI- Racheal Ray has a good one that I use from memory now. It is not super creamy, but couldeasily be adapted to be so. I am personally trying to avoid the creamed soups in a can- MSG- but they are convenient and certainly add creaminess and flavor! Rachel has you cut up the chicken adn douse it in salt and peppered flour. Brown it, then take it out, add some oil to the pans (she has you use two pans to make room for the ingredients to not stick together), then add the vegges to the pan to saute- carrots, potatoes, onion, celery- you could easily add spinach later on. After the veggies cook for about 7 minutes, you add chicken broth with a bit of water (21oz broth plus 1/2 c water per pan). Meanwhile you have been making you dumplings- which are just baking powder biscuits- you can make these in a snap with either self-rise flour, some shortnening and water or milk, or you can make them all from scratch almost as easily. (Any better homes and gardens or Betty Crocker cook book will have it). To the dumpling mix you add some chopped fresh parsley- gives it a great flavor. When the veggies come to a simmer, add the chicken back in, then add the dumplings by tablespoon full, evenly distributing them between the pans. Let that all simmer with the lids on until the broth thickens some and everything has had a chance to blend flavors- about 15 minutes. you can make it creamier by adding milk or cream in instead of water with the broth earlier in he recipe- or you could simply make a flour water mixture to thicken the broth. As it is, the broth is pretty thick and mostly is absorbed into the other ingredients.

Take care! Hope you find one you like!

want an easy recipe for a crockpot? Do 2 cans chicken, 1 can mushroom soup, 1 can cream of chicken soup, 1 can water, some chicken broth, salt and pepper and put biscuits (either the canned or bisquick) on top and let cook for 6 hours. Easy easy and good!

When making chicken and dumplings I use a simple recipe I boil a whole chicken then after it cools I pull all the meat off the chicken while pulling the chicken off O put it back in the water then once all the chicken has been deboned and added back into the pot I use a 4 pack can biscuits and make little balls from them. After this has cooked it should thicken up but if it doesnt you can put a little of mike in a cup add flour to it and mix well then add it to the pot of chicken and dumplings. This will thicken it up if it doesnt thicken. Hope you enjoy I know our family really enjoys this.

ok... here is what I do... you may or may not like it.. It is very simple and my family loves it... cook a whole chicken in chicken broth. when done save the broth and add cream of mushroom and/or cream of chicken soup.... take chicken out and let cool..then debone... shredding the chicken.. add back to broth. then add two small backs frozen vegies of your choice. while chiken is cooling... get a box of bisquick... mix some with some milk.. ( Inever measure) until very think but you can still stir it.. mix it up and let it set.... it will get puffy. When you have everything put together and it is bubbling... drop in spoonfuls of the dumpling (bisquick mix) into the pot.. do not stir the dumpling mix before droping in or the dumplings will be flat. put a lid on top of pot and cook until dumplings are big and you can fluff up with a fork. And thats my chicken and dumplings... hope you like it.. :)
