  • Wipe out skillet, and return to stove. Stir soup and milk together in skillet. Place chicken in pan, and heat to boiling. Reduce heat to low; cover skillet, and simmer 45 minutes, turning chicken from time to time.

  • Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine 2 cups baking mix, milk, parsley, and poultry seasoning, stirring together until a soft dough forms. Once the chicken has cooked 45 minutes, drop the dumpling mixture by tablespoonfuls into the simmering gravy. Cook uncovered for 10 minutes; cover, and cook 10 minutes more, until dumplings expand.

I didn't have baking mix so used 2 cups of flour 3 tablespoons butter 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon baking powder and 1 egg. Used milk and chicken broth until the right consistancy was achieved. Read More

Very simple & tasty chicken and dumpling recipe. I used boneless and skinless thighs and breast because that is all I had. It was a little too salty to my taste so next time I will use reduced sodium soup. I will definitely make this again on a cold winter night. Thanks for sharing Caryl! Read More

This recipe is the way I make my chicken & dumplings. Always brown the chicken & keep pieces whole. I always make my chicken stock the day before so I can skim off all of the fat. You need A LOT of stock/broth. This recipe & method is one of the better ones. If you debone the chicken you actually end up with a dumpling soup. Read More

While this recipe did not have a lot of reviews it reminded me of the chicken and dumplings my mom used to make when I was a kid. It was just as delicious. I made it exactly the way it was stated except I did add some canned carrots at the end just for color. Everybody loved it. My ex-husband said it even made the carrots taste good and he hates cooked carrots. Read More
