Chicken and Dumplings

I had left over canned biscuits from Christmas, so thought I would use them in place of homemade.... works pretty good!

1 onion, chopped
3 carrots, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
1/2 cup peas
1/2 tsp. thyme leaves
1/4 tsp tumeric
1/8 tsp pepper
3 Tbls. olive oil
8 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup half and half
1 rotisserie chicken, removed from bones and cut up
1 pkg canned refrigerated biscuits

Saute onion in olive oil just until soft, add carrots, celery, peas, thyme and turmeric, continue to saute for a few minutes, add chicken broth. Simmer for 20 minutes, add chicken, continue simmering for 5-10 minutes. Pour in half and half. Cut biscuits into 1/4's, drop into simmering chicken, loosely cover and simmer for 15-20 min.

Ladle up and enjoy!
