I learned a very valuable lesson when I made this. Actually read the reviews. It's just really disappointing when the reviews are so high but everyone adds things to make it better. I made this exactly the way it was said and I was not pleased. Read More

This is the perfect comfort food! I added some chopped carrots onions celery garlic and herbs for more flavor but I think it would have been good as written. I've seen several recipes with biscuit dumplings and I was really skeptical about them but they were really good! Thanks for this easy and yummy recipe! Read More

My husband said this was good and had a nice flavor 4/5 stars. I cut it in half for an easy and quick supper for those nights when you need one. It went great with Carrots Augratin available on this site. My son was expecting carrots celery in the turkey/gravy along with "home-made" drop-type dumplings like he's had before. Thanks Joan!

Wow! What a great recipe for leftover turkey or chicken. I used a 14oz can of Swanson's Seasoned Broth - Roasted Garlic and 1 cup 4 tablespoons of water to make the 3 cups of liquid. Added great flavor and you didn't need to cook it as long. Also I used Pillbury Grands Biscuits. Wow! Read More

I gave this three stars because we did have to alter this recipe during preparation. However we really enjoyed the end result and will make this again. I kept chicken broth handy to add to the pot as I noticed during the simmering process of the turkey that not much liquid was present and I feared I would not be able to add the dumplings. Also I used 1/2 water and 1/2 chicken broth to start (following the others advice). Last I followed the bisquick recipe for dumplings (mix and milk). I love dumpling recipes and this was a nice and easy favorite. Read More

If you want more traditional dumplings with out the time spent mixing and rolling use the pillsbury ready made pie crust. You will find it with the biscuits. The box has two crusts in it. I immediatly open and unroll them while the chicken/turkey cooks in canned broth and water. while still cold spread a small amount of flour on the and slice into squares then drop once chicken is done and you have pulled it out and shredded. add chicken back to pot once the dumplings have started cooking.

Added some chicken Both in place of some of the water and added a little bit of Gravy from the Turkey pack. I also added some Green Beans and Carrots It Turned out GREAT! This is a Keeper for sure!
