The Florida lotto is estimated at $2 Million-
 again...very happy reasons to play!
Good Luck to those who play..............rub your tickets for good luck!

I mentioned to a few of my friends that I would be posting the recipes here.... but time got ahold of me, and well.... here there are. Hope you enjoy:

Chicken and Dumplings:

1 1/2 - 2 lbs Frozen Chicken breast (about 5-6 large chicken breats)

3-5 TBSP Butter

2 cans Campbell's cream of chicken soup

1 can Campbells chicken broth

1 can Swanson chicken broth

1 onion - chopped

3-4 potatoes,peeled/quartered
1 bay leaf

1 can peas,drained

1 bag frozen baby carrots

1 can pillsbury biscuit dough

1 box Ronzoni Orzo

Spices: cumin, paprika, parsley,

garlic powder, kick n' chicken,

celery salt, salt & pepper to taste

7:00am- spray crockpot with Pam. Place frozen chicken breast in crock pot, top with 3-5 TBSP Butter, pour BOTH cans cream of chicken soup on chicken, pour BOTH cans chicken broth over chicken, add chopped onion, add potatoes, place bay leaf on top. Season according to like/taste with all seasonings- generally a sprinkling of each to cover the top.
7:30am: Turn crockpot on LOW. Place carrot bag on counter to defrost.
1:45pm take all chicken out. Place in bowl. SHRED chicken. Cut room temp defrosted carrots - put chicken and carrots into pot, stir. Open biscuit dough- place all biscuits on a cutting board. Press lightly to flatten each one. Sprinkle each biscuit with parsley and black pepper, press lightly again to make season stick. Cut each biscuit into 1/4ths. Toss all biscuit pieces into crock pot. Turn crockpot on HIGH for 1 1/2 hours more. Meal should be ready around 3:30pm-4pm. Add can of peas and stir, the peas will heat up in a matter of moments, without getting mushy.

While the biscuit/dumplings are cooking, you can cook the orzo on the stove. DRAIN VERY WELL. Place in separate bowl- do not add orzo to crock pot. When ready to serve, place a scoop of orzo in bowl, top with chicken/dumpling mixture. Enjoy.

This is really very good considering it is made in a crockpot. You wouldn't believe it when you taste it. I really did like it, but will once again state that I REALLY liked it the next day with mashed potatoes. YUM!!!
