"This is my mom's recipe for classic chicken and dumplings. It is simple, hearty, and delicious! I often do the chicken in the slow cooker, and do the rest on the stove when I get home from work. I can have this on the table in 30 minutes using this method. Also, if you really love dumplings, you might want to double the recipe." — karab

Really enjoyed it......it was a fast and easy dinner especially since I threw the chicken in the crockpot in the morning. I had never made Chicken and Dumplings before and it came out great!
I just use canned biscuits for the dumplings.
Really tasty. Boiled boneless skinless chicken breasts for an hour then shredded. Also added a few tablespoons of chicken bullion for flavor.
Very good- but make extra dumplings for the dumpling lovers!
My first attempt at Chicken and Dumplings and huge success! I threw some leftover roasted squash, onions,and sweet potatoes in with the chicken to deepen the broth without adding more butter. Used 3 split chicken breasts in place of a whole chicken. The dumplings are great but I will double them next time. Even better after sitting overnight and letting the broth flavors continue to mingle. A definite repeater!
I tried recipe this weekend. On saturday i cooked the chicken. On sunday I did the rest. It turned out great. I will probably add some seasoning next time. I thought it was a bit bland.
VERY VERY GOOD.. Cant wait to have again
I was really surprised by this recipe. I usually add tons more stuff to chicken and dumplings and made this as a faceless recipe for the AllRecipes Allstar faceless recipe challenge. I really loved it. I made it as written and I also made carrots, potatoes, onions, celery, thyme on the side cooked in the same broth. I really liked the original recipe the best (and we love veggies). This will be my go to chicken and dumpling recipe. I must say also that I have never fixed flat dumplings, only the round ones. I had to get help from the Recipe Buzz but they showed me how to make the dumplings. (they should be rolled out to about 1/8th of an inch.) Thanks so much for posting the recipe.
