Baked Chicken and Dumplings

This is my fast version of chicken and dumplings. Meaning this one does not have rolled out dumplings. We like these every once in a while and that time was the other day. I like these dumplings when they get a little crusty from being under the broiler for a few minutes. This is an all in one dish too, makes for an easy clean-up. This is What's Cookin on Beaty's Creek.

1 whole chicken
1 bag baby carrots
2 T ground sage
Salt and Pepper to taste
3 cups Bisquick

First make your "dumplings". I take 3 cups of Bisquick to 1 1/2 cups milk and stir until a sticky dough forms. This is what you will drop into your broth.

Cover chicken with water and add salt, pepper, sage and carrots. Boil until chicken falls off the bone. Remove chicken and bone, add chicken back to pot and return to a boil. Drop "dumplings" by the spoon full and cover with a lid for 10 minutes, now preheat oven to 450' and bake uncovered for 15 minutes, after done baking broil for 5 minutes or until "dumplings" brown slightly.
