Mom's Chicken and Dumplings


My mom used to make us this recipe for chicken and dumplings when we were growing up. Now I make it for my family and they all love it! It's simple yet delicious.

  • 6 boneless chicken thighs

  • 5 cups water, or as needed to cover

  • 2 (10.5 ounce) cans condensed cream of celery soup

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • 1 (12 ounce) package refrigerated biscuit dough


  1. In a large pot over high heat, combine chicken with enough water to cover; bring to a boil. Boil until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 15 to 20 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

  2. Drain some water, reserving 3 cups in the pot. Remove chicken, allow it to cool slightly, then pull it apart into bite-sized pieces and return to the pot.

  3. Add condensed soup, season with salt and pepper, and set the heat to medium. Pull biscuit dough into pieces, and add it to the pot. Simmer until dough is cooked through, 7 to 8 minutes.
