    There is some debate in my household as to the cooking method to this so I will mention both

    • 4 to 6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
    • Kirkland’s Sweet Mesquite Rub
    • cooking oil

    Rub breasts all over with seasoning have hot skillet ready with your choice of cooking oil fry till cooked or as my son proffers bake in hot (400 degrees) oven about 30 minutes (I found chicken dry and tough outside when baked.)

    I serve with seasoned oven roasted potatoes and a salad

    Wash beans. Combine beans & cold water in large pot. Bring to boil; boil 2 minutes. Remove from heat let stand for 1 hour, or you can do as I do and soak the beans over night. Add Salt; simmer about 1 hour or until beans are tender. Drain, reserving 1 3/4c liquid, add water if needed to achieve 1 3/4c set aside. Cook bacon till crisp reserving some fat for later, crumble bacon set bacon aside, place beans into a backing dish or pot capable of going into the oven, mix mustard, bacon and some of the bacon fat, sugar & molasses into bean liquid; and pour over beans. Cover and bake at 300 degrees for 5 to 7 hours yes that is right I said 5 to 7 hours, add water if needed.

    This is an “All Day” recipe; I find I need to put things on to cook by 3 pm to have dinner ready by 6 pm. I am having a hard time with writing this due to its a multi stage task.

    Also remove any excess fat from chicken and cut off tail if not done already.

    To make stock:

    • 1 Whole Chicken (skinned)
    • Water to cover chicken
    • 2 tsp salt
    • 2 to 3 Bay Leaves
    • 1 Large Onion cut in large pieces
    • Celery tops (save stalks for later)
    • Several garlic cloves
    • Rosemary
    • Thyme
    • Parsley

    To make Dumplings:

    • 2 1/2 cups Bisquick
    • 2/3 cups milk
    • 1 egg

    Directions, Mix Bisquick and milk until soft dough forms, Drop dough by spoonfuls onto stew or soup, cook uncovered over low heat 10 minutes. Cover and cook 10 minutes longer.

    To make meal:

    • 5 or 6 Sliced carrots
    • 1 medium Diced Onion
    • 4 or 5 stalks celery sliced
    • 1 tub sliced mushrooms
    • Salt to taste

    Start with 1 whole chicken I remove the skin If you have trouble with this buy a fryer precut and skinned place in large pot cover with water now, I am of the opinion you flavor the stock as you cook it so I add the seasonings at this point. Bring to boil and then simmer for 1 to 2 hours till chicken is falling off the bones, turn off heat, then take a colander lined with cheese cloth and drain into another pot saving the broth set chicken aside let cool so now you have chicken broth, now separate the chicken from the bones and return just the chicken meat to the broth (Discard the chicken bones & cooked veggies and seasonings from making the broth) add sliced carrots & celery diced onion more parsley bring back to boil and cook till vegetables are cooked and sliced mushrooms just before adding dumplings.
