Who would have thought....

that Jessica Simpson cooks? Well, she does and here is one of her favorites! It comes from one of her parent's church cookbooks and her mom used to make this all the time while she was growing up! I thought it would be perfect for this cold front that blew in! LOL - it's still in the high 80's!!! Now with football on TV, it really puts you in the mood for colder weather and comfort food! And this really fits the bill! And since my oldest requests this all the time, I thought it was time to put in on the blog. So, enjoy :O)

Jessica Simpson's Chicken and Dumpling Casserole

3 rolls of croissant rolls, divided
1 small rotisserie chicken, cubed (we cook a few chicken breasts instead)
1-2 cups frozen mixed veggies (my addition)
1 can of cream of chicken soup
1 can of cream of mushroom soup
1 cup chicken broth
Salt and ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 400ºF. Roll out the cans of croissant sheets and separate into diamond shaped sections. Place a small handful of rotisserie chicken on each diamond, fold dough over and press ends together to create dumplings. Cut up any excess dough into strips. Line a 9x13" baking dish with one layer of dumplings. Toss in the frozen veggies in between all the dumplings. Pour the can of cream of chicken soup over the layer of dumplings, followed by the can of cream of mushroom soup, and then your chicken broth. Place strips in a crisscross pattern on the top of the dumplings and soup mixture, season dish with salt and ground black pepper and bake until the dumplings are tender and cooked through and the top is bubbly and brown, about 30 minutes.

**she does fat free of everything - but I of course took that off!!! ;-)
