A super easy way to make chicken and dumplings. My husband and kids loved it.



Original recipe yields 6 servings
The ingredient list now reflects the servings specified


  • Combine chicken broth, chicken breast cubes, onion, carrots, celery, bay leaf, salt, and pepper in a large pot; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover pot, and simmer until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the vegetables are tender, 20 to 25 minutes.

  • Mix baking mix and milk in a bowl until dough is sticky; drop golf ball-sized pieces of dough into the soup. Cover pot and cook until dumplings are cooked through, about 10 minutes.

I liked this w/ the exception of the bisquick - it's better w/ a dumpling made from scratch and doesn't take much more time either. I added some herbs to the broth for added flavour. I learned to take a kitchen towel and cover the pot and then place the lid on top -this helps to remove excess moisture. Read More

I use this recipe. My family loves it. I also add a handful of frozen mixed vegetables to it before I add the dumplings. My way of cooking the dumplings are 10 minutes covered and 10 minutes uncovered. Great recipe! Read More

I made this tonight it was delicious. As some others have done I made some additions/substitutions. I found using the Bisquick a bit heavy but I suppose that's the point! I added rosemary to the Bisquick mixture. I added thyme garlic powder and some Veloutine to the soup. I didn't particularly want to add the thickener but my mom wanted it much more like a stew than a soup. I also added frozen peas just before dropping the dumplings. I used 4 whole chicken breasts as there are four of us. There is a little bit leftover but I found that a cereal bowl with the "soup" and 2 dumplings was quite enough for me. All in all very easy to make tasty and easy to adjust to individual tastes. Read More

Excellent easy and quick recipe! I had 2 large chicken breasts and some carrots from the garden that needed to be used. Wasn't sure how I was going to feed my family of 4 with 2 chicken breasts & came across this recipe! I did not have celery so added diced potatoes and some frozen peas. Jen - you saved my night thank you! Read More

Yum yum yum! Used left over cooked chicken. Cooked veggies first - added salt sage poultry seasoning & garlic powder. Added cream of mushroom soup and canned mushrooms after veggies were cooked. For dumplings - used at least 1 cup of milk - added pepper poultry seasoning garlic powder and italian seasoning to dry mix. Cooked with cover on 10 mins and 10 mins without (add towel to absorb moisture) - added paprika on top for garnish. Read More

This is how I make my chicken and dumplings. I also take a bit of the extra dumpling mix add extra milk to water it down a bit and whisk it in to thicken the broth. Sometimes I will also add a can of cream of chicken soup but this recipe is easy and delicious. My husband loves it! Read More

Wonderful! I used Progresso chicken broth for the spices and Pillsbury Grand biscuits cut into eighths to save time. Initially made because I have the same soup bowls as in the photo and came across the recipe when I was looking for comfort food.. NEVER expected it too be this good! Husband loved it. This recipe is a keeper. Read More

LOVE!! I used Pioneer Mills baking mix and it was great! I added twice as many stalks of celery and it didn't take up as much room! I was a little iffy about "1 whole onion" but it blended well and wasn't at all too much! I did golf-ball sized dumplings but they were HUGE. Don't mix around the soup once the dumplings are in; they'll fall apart. Put it on low heat too whenever you add the dumplings otherwise you'll burn the bottom.(I did just a little). I didn't add the bay leaf. I added a bit more chicken too. Read More
