Savory Chicken and Dumplings

Easy to fix, full of flavor and so hearty for a cold winter's day!
I have always loved chicken and dumplings but do not make them............hardly ever.  The main reason is that my husband and children have never seemed to want to eat them. They are the most picky eaters ever. If I can get them to eat a dish that they are not familiar with, and they like it.............then I can assure you, that it is a wonderful recipe. Such as it is with this wonderful tasty dumpling dish. It almost has a taste of a Thanksgiving dinner to it............perhaps that is why that during the time it was cooking, it had my son out of his room and asking what smelt so  good. Then he tried a sample, and wound up having two helpings!!
I really find it worth my cooking time to find a recipe that pleases my family. This recipe is so easy because it is cooked in a large skillet on the stove top and is ready within minutes.
3/4 tsp. rubbed sage
1/2 tsp. minced garlic
1/2 tsp. rosemary
1/2 tsp. thyme
1/2 tsp. black ground pepper
3/4 tsp. parsley flakes
1/4 cup. butter
1 med onion, chopped
1/4 cup flour
3 cups chicken broth
1 1/3 cups milk, divided
3 cups cubed, cooked  chicken
2 cups mixed frozen vegetables
1 cup baking mix, like Bisquick
Melt butter in large nonstick skillet on med-high. Add onion, cook and stir until softened. Sprinkle with flour and stir with whisk until mixture is well blended. Add broth, 1 cup of the milk and all of the spices, except for the parsley. Whisk until smooth.
Stir in the chicken and vegetables. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium.
Mix baking mix and parsley in a medium bowl. Add the remaining 1/3 cup milk. Mix well. Drop by spoonfuls onto chicken mixture. Cook, uncovered for 10 minutes. Cover and cook and additional 10 minutes. Enjoy!
