Directions

  • Melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat. Stir in the onions, and cook for a few minutes until they begin to soften. Add the chicken breast and thigh meat; cook and stir until the chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 10 minutes. Pour in the water and cream of chicken soup; season with chicken bouillon and poultry seasoning. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat.

  • Meanwhile, pour the milk into a mixing bowl, and stir in the baking mix until a dough forms. Once the soup is simmering, drop the dumpling mix in by the spoonful. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the dumplings are no longer doughy in the center, about 20 minutes. Turn the dumplings over after 10 minutes to ensure they cook evenly.

Don't turn over the dumplings! just 10 min lid on 10 min lid off Perfect! Not your "old style" Chicken and Dumplings but very good! If you don't like using can soup do your own with stock and flour. Read More

I am an intermediate cook not a pro not a culinary chef and here's my take on chicken n dumplings for a beginner;I usually use thighs but any part will do.Boil chicken in water that covers pieces use as many as you choose depending on how much you want.Boil for at least an hour and up to 1 hour and 15 min.Set pieces aside to cool.Drain all broth through strainer into another pot then bring to a boil again.Add whatever seasonings you choose at this point.I use a little of each of sage garlic poultry seasoning-if I have it salt and pepper.At boiling add dumplings either from scratch flour or use canned biscuits and cut each biscuit into fourths.Turn fire down to a med-simmer until dumplings swell.Continue another 20 min or so until broth thickens some.Pull chicken off bones chop into smaller chunks and add to mixture.Perfect every time.

"Beginner"?? The taste sure isnt! I continue to learn that many of the simplest recipes are the best. The dark meat of the thighs make a difference as they add to the flavour. In addition to dumplings I sometimes prepared egg noodles for those who like it served that way and frequently because the dumplings tend to disappear so fast! A very good recipe! More thoughts: To economise I've bought skin on bone in chicken (big difference). Using an oven & stovetop safe pot the chicken can then be roasted in the oven at 350-375 degrees for approximately 30-40 minutes. Once cooled the skin & bones are easily removed. Any excess fat can be spooned off and the cooked crispy bits in the pot's bottom will add to the favour. At this point carry on as directed perhaps choosing to omit the butter as the only change. Healthorg's recipe is delicious as posted but I'm finding with the price of ready prepped chicken so dear this can be a savings option by slightly altering only the method. Cheers! Read More

Delicious!! I substituted the the water and poultry seasoning with 6 cups of chicken stock. In also used a rotisserie chicken instead of cooking my own. My husband likes lots of dumplings so I made a double batch of dumplings. But it was so good!! Read More

Wow! We all loved this and it was easy to prepare on a week night. I used 3 large chicken breasts and omitted the thighs. Had to substitute cream of celery for the chicken. Tasted great. Thanks for sharing this recipe. Read More

Very good! I have never made chicken and dumplings before and this recipe was easy and tastes great! Only thing I would change is dropping the bisquick mixture by the spoonful made the dumplings too big for my taste. I will make them smaller next time. Oh and use chicken stock/broth instead of water. Just adds more flavor. Read More

easy and can make changes as you like. i used cream of celery on hand. i had no bisquick so i used the following recipe and it made 30 dumplings and i added a dash of poultry seasoning to the dumplings for some flavor and it was a great idea!) DROP DUMPLINGS In bowl mix 1 cup flour 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 heaping teaspoon baking powder. Add enough milk to make dough and stir with fork. Have chicken broth boiling in pan. Drop dumpling dough in broth by tablespoon full. Cover pan reduce heat. Cook only 7 minutes. Read More
