Okay…Sam, I am a grandma and I made a roast chicken. BUT…I’m all for those rotisserie chickens!
Otherwise this is classic chicken and dumplings😀

I always watch you too; does that help? ♡

Serves 6 people

Unless you’re already a grandma, this’ll for sure make you feel like one.

1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
2 sticks celery, diced
1 1/2 cups diced, carrots
1 yellow onion, diced
1 teaspoon dried thyme
2 garlic cloves, crushed
3 tablespoons Vermouth
1/4 cup flour
2 cups deli-roasted chicken, shredded
1 quart chicken broth
Dumplings:

3/4 cup flour
2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup milk
large pinch dried thyme
Kosher salt and pepper to season
DIRECTIONS

Heat oil and butter in a large pot over medium heat and add celery, carrot, onion, thyme, and garlic –  cook for 5 mins until softened
Then add vermouth and flour, and mix until it’s dry and crumbly
Add broth and mix thoroughly
Add the cooked chicken and the broth and bring to a simmer & cook until thickened and heated though, about 10 minutes
While it heats put flour, baking powder and thyme in a large bowl, season with salt & pepper and mix well to combine
Add the milk and mix until just enough for it to come together to a loose wet dough
Drop spoonfuls (about a tablespoon and a half) on top of the chicken mixture but keeping them from touching too much, bring to a slow simmer and put on the lid cook about 10 minutes
Serve and enjoy.
LOOK…I HAD LEFTOVERS…it’s what we do.  #grandmas

(Can you make out it’s a whole chicken surrounded by veggies? lol. Also, I tossed a couple pats of butter to drippings/gravy. Split second decision, adds a richness & maybe stretches it out to increase amount? I don’t know if it added to volume but didn’t hurt anything. I usually make thin gravy with drippings and stock from inners, smoothing it out thru seive. BUT it’s over 100º on this day so…I couldn’t take the heat so I had to get out of the kitchen. As you can see, it doesn’t really matter. Just would look prettier😀 Tastes great as is, so ; p )

Its really really delicious.  It looks a little messy due to combination of TOO HOT to handle, chicken falling off bone yet still juicy & my nice big ”…
