Jessica Simpson's Chicken and Dumplings

Jessica Simpson's Chicken and Dumplings6 servings

3 tubes croissant rolls
1 small rotisserie chicken, skin discarded and meat removed from bones
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 cup chicken broth
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 400ยบ. 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. Line a 9x13 inch baking dish with one layer of dumplings. Combine soups and chicken broth; pour over dumplings. Season with salt and pepper and bake until the dumplings are tender and cooked through and the top is brown and bubbly - about 30 minutes. (I laid foil across my pan about halfway though, because the dumplings were browning too quickly.)

Yummy!!! I got this recipe from my friend Giggles. Thank you Giggles - these were so easy and so delicious!

Also, I just had to add, my family came home from soccer practice tonight, and of course wanted to know what was in the oven. I replied, "Jessica Simpson's Chicken and Dumplings". My daughter said, "Oh? She cooks??" ;-) Haha - yes, she does, and she cooks well! :-)
