This is a great recipe for Southern-style chicken and dumplings. My husband doesn't usually like chicken and dumplings, but he absolutely loved these and asked for seconds (which he never does with anything). My little boys (2, 4, and 5 years) ate it up and asked for more also. I just threw this together on a night I didn't feel like spending much time and energy on cooking. This is great and easy for the kids to help with also.

Directions

  • In a medium bowl, stir together the biscuit mix and milk just until it pulls together. Set aside.

  • Pour the cans of chicken broth into a saucepan along with the chicken; bring to a boil. Once the broth is at a steady boil, take a handful of biscuit dough and flatten it in your hand. Tear off 1 to 2 inch pieces and drop them into the boiling broth. Make sure they are fully immersed at least for a moment. Once all of the dough is in the pot, carefully stir so that the newest dough clumps get covered by the broth. Cover, and simmer over medium heat for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

This was just too easy and so good! I made it exactly as written except I added a little frozen mixed vegetables. Also the dough was really sticky and hard to work with. I think next time I would add just a little less milk. Otherwise really good and really easy. My husband and I ate nearly the whole dish ourselves! Read More

Loved this recipe. It was so incredibly easy... I even made it easier by making the dumplings from refrigerated biscuit dough. My husband LOVED it! Read More

Very satisfying for a very cold night! I must admit I did make some simple modifications though. 1) Substituted refridgerated biscuit dough instead of using the dry mix. 2) To begin I sauteed onion and cut up pieces of chicken breast (don't like canned chicken) removed from pan and then re-added after the dumplings were almost cooked. 3) Added a can of corn (a must!) 4) Replaced one can of chicken broth for one can of condensed cream of chicken soup. YUM heated up the leftovers for lunch! Read More

My fiance and I loved this! I halved the dumpling mix and I think I'll half it once more; we found there were too many for our taste. I sauteed about 1/3c each of carrots onion celery and then threw the raw cubed chicken in with that until it was cooked through. Then I added the broth and brought it to a boil. I then dropped in the dumplings as directed and it turned out wonderful! Great recipe! Read More

I've made this twice and both times I've had great results. Both times I've added a bag of frozen veggies and used leftover chicken. Also if you add more broth (I think I added about 40 ounces) you get more of a chicken and dumplings soup. For those with leftover dough make biscuits with it! This is definitely an easy recipe base that will stay in my rotation. Thanks! Read More

When I read the recipe I was a bit skeptical. And it didn't seem like 2 cans of chicken stock was enough. But I followed the recipe to the letter and it was OUTSTANDING!!!! This recipe is so good. My 5 year old loved it and even asked for seconds!! GREAT RECIPE! Read More
