Old Fashioned Chicken & Dumplings

Old fashioned chicken and dumplings is a southern classic dish made with a whole chicken, warm broth and hearty scratch dumplings.  
When old man winter comes knocking at my door, it's time to hunker indoors, warm up by the fireplace with a cup of hot cocoa and enjoy all my favorite winter comfort foods. Some of my favorite cold weather dishes are garden harvest stew, venison chili, creamy chicken and noodles, chicken spaghetti, chicken and dressing, pinto beans with ham and cornbread, chicken corn chowder and this Old Fashioned Chicken and Dumplings

Some people think chicken and dumplings is hard to make, but it's really pretty simple. I like to use a fresh whole chicken, but a store bought rotisserie chicken can also be used if you're in a pinch for time. See my note at the end of this post for directions on making this recipe using a rotisserie.

Freezer Dinner Rolls with Cinnamon Vanilla Honey Butter

Simple and Convenient Rhodes Meal Size Freezer Dinner Rolls slathered with homemade Cinnamon-Vanilla Honey Butter. 🍯
 
Raise your hand if you love fresh, hot, fluffy dinner rolls on your holiday table? I know I do and my family enjoys fresh rolls just as much. The only problem for me is most times I forget to make the yeast roll dough. That's where these Freezer Dinner Roll Pans come into play. 

I used my favorite Rhodes Frozen Yeast Dinner Rolls and a few of my favorite freezer pans to make simple convenient meal size freezer rolls. I know what you're thinking..... Rhodes dinner rolls are already frozen and convenient, so what's so special about this method? 

Well, let me tell you this make ahead method is simple, convenient, and makes perfectly portioned grab and go pan rolls. I like to use my favorite round 9 inch disposable baking pans with lids from my local Dollar Tree. I can get three pans with lids for just $1 and they're the perfect size for dinner rolls.
