  • In a mixing bowl, prepare biscuit mix according to package directions. After simmering soup for 40 minutes, drop rounded tablespoonfuls of the biscuit mixture into the pot and let them cook a bit between additions of dumplings, so that they do not stick together.

  • With a wire whisk, mix together about 1 1/2 cups of water with the flour, then add flour mixture to the soup pot until the broth has the consistency of gravy. Dig in and enjoy the meal!

Great southern-style recipe but no need for potatoes and refrigerated canned biscuits work great for dumplings. Adding the flour at the end to make the gravy is the key to this being a GREAT chicken and dumplings recipe. Read More

Very bland. I added probably close to a dozen bullion cubes and a canned of condensed cream of mushroom soup to get any sort of flavor and then sprinkled parmasan cheese on top of each serving. It was still a very loose soup not gravy like at all not even after adding a can of condensed cream soup. Two thumbs down. Read More

Very good recipe. My family (even my 15 month old!!) really liked it. I made a few small modifications: used chicken breasts cut into bite-sized peices only used 2 potatoes threw in a few handfuls of frozen peas and a diced onion subbed stock for water and I threw in a pinch of poultry seasoning. I also added a little marjoram to the Bisquick before cooking the dumplings. It was really really good. Thanks for the recipe!! Read More

An O.K. recipe. Takes lots of time needs much more salt than the recipe indicates and it makes a huge amount - more like 15 servings definitely NOT 4! Read More

I didn't really care much for this dish. I cut the potatoes down to three and wished I had only used one. Toooo much potato/starch. Mine actually ended up a little dryer than I like them after adding the dumplings with all the potatoes already in there... I say put this in the scratch file. Sorry.... Read More

Good recipe. Adding the dumplings makes its own gravy. There is no need to add the flour to thicken it. Read More
