Easy Chicken and Dumplings with Vegetables

Rated as 4.18 out of 5 Stars

"For a cold night or if you have a cold! My mom's Southern chicken and dumplings simplified with biscuit dough (preservative-free!) and boned chicken. It's also healthier with skinless chicken and added mirepoix. Adjust seasonings as necessary."

  • Ready In

  1. Combine water, carrots, onion, celery, thyme, rosemary, salt, and black pepper in a large pot; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until vegetables are tender, about 15 minutes. Add chicken to soup and cook until no longer pink in the center, about 10 minutes.
  2. Drop biscuit pieces into soup and cook until dumplings are cooked through, 10 to 20 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • If you have time, you can make whole wheat dough in the bread maker and use part of it instead of the biscuit dough.
  • Chicken stock can be substituted for water if desired.

Wow, way too much seasoning. Thankfully I tasted it before I added the chicken. I double checked the recipe and I made it exactly . Sorry, it's a no for me.

Soup was good. I would cut back on the Thyme and Rosemary. It was to overpowering for our taste buds. I also would cut back on the amount of biscuit dough that this recipe calls for. Instead ...

Browning the chicken first (in the same pot you'll cook the rest of this in, so you get all those nice brown bits of fond) makes a BIG difference in flavor. I added chopped onion, some minced ga...

I followed the exact recipe the first time. It was good but I thought it was too much thyme and rosemary. It was a good base to start with because I have never even eaten chicken and dumplings b...

I used chicken thighs and browned them first. I only used celery, onions, and poultry seasoning, besides salt and pepper.
