   Submitted by:   Sherry Dale

" This is a combination of chicken fricassee and some other concoction I dreamt up on day.  It is really easy and the kids just love it. "

    4 pound chicken, cut up or substitute boneless chicken breasts
1/2 cup onion, chopped
2 tablespoons chicken bouillon
3 tablespoons flour
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 cups Bisquick
2/3 cups milk
1-2 tablespoons lemon juice
3-4 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 teaspoons of rosemary or thyme
2 cups water
  1   In plastic bag, combine flour, salt & pepper.  Coat each piece of chicken well.
  2   In 12" skillet, heat thin layer of vegetable oil.  Carefully brown chicken, remove to paper towels.  Drain fat from skillet; reserve.  Add water to pan, chicken bouillon, lemon juice, onion, and rosemary or thyme, mix well.  Add chicken to mixture and simmer for 2-1/2 hours (for cut-up) or 1-1/2 hours for chicken breasts.

After chicken is done, remove and set aside.  Mix 1/2 cup water and flour and add to mixture to thicken.  Season to taste.  Put chicken back into skillet and add dumpling mixture to pan (2 cups Bisquick, 2/3 cups milk mixed) for 10 minutes uncovered.  Cook an additional 10 minutes covered.
