This is so yummy on a cold winter day!

  • 1/4 Cup chopped celery
  • 1/4 Cup chopped onion
  • 4 Tablespoons butter
  • 2 Cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (omit if on a low sodium diet or replace with sea salt)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 1 Cup milk
  • 2 Cups leftover cooked chicken, diced

Sift flour, salt & baking powder into medium bowl and mix well.  Set this aside.  Cook celery and onion in butter until golden brown.   Combine eggs, milk, chicken, and the browned celery/onion mixture.   Add all at once to dry ingredients, stirring quickly until ingredients are just moistened.  Too much stirring will toughen the batter. 

Bake in greased muffin pans in hot oven, 425 degrees, about 15 minutes.  Makes 1 1/2 dozen muffins.  Serve warm with lots of hot chicken gravy.  (diced turkey can be used as well)
