Jessica Simpson's Chicken & Dumplings (very similar to crescent roll chicken)

*serves 6.

This recipe is very similar to Crescent Roll Chicken and it's very good! :) Maybe she can cook, after all?!

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. Lay foil across pan about halfway though, because dumplings will brown too quickly.
