1 (32 ounce) container
skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cubed, or more as needed
1/2 (16 ounce) package
salt and ground black pepper to taste
2 1/4 cups
baking mix (such as Bisquick ®)
I liked this w/ the exception of the bisquick - it's better w/ a dumpling made from scratch, and doesn't take much more time either. I added some herbs to the broth for added flavour. I learned to take a kitchen towel and cover the pot, and then place the lid on top -this helps to remove excess moisture.
I use this recipe. My family loves it. I also add a handful of frozen mixed vegetables to it before I add the dumplings. My way of cooking the dumplings are 10 minutes covered and 10 minutes uncovered. Great recipe!
I made this tonight, it was delicious. As some others have done, I made some additions/substitutions. I found using the Bisquick a bit heavy, but I suppose that's the point! I added rosemary to the Bisquick mixture. I added thyme, garlic powder, and some Veloutine to the soup. I didn't particularly want to add the thickener, but my mom wanted it much more like a stew than a soup. I also added frozen peas just before dropping the dumplings. I used 4 whole chicken breasts, as there are four of us. There is a little bit leftover, but I found that a cereal bowl with the "soup" and 2 dumplings was quite enough for me. All in all, very easy to make, tasty, and easy to adjust to individual tastes.
This is how I make my chicken and dumplings. I also take a bit of the extra dumpling mix, add extra milk to water it down a bit and whisk it in to thicken the broth. Sometimes I will also add a can of cream of chicken soup but this recipe is easy and delicious. My husband loves it!
Excellent, easy and quick recipe! I had 2 large chicken breasts and some carrots from the garden that needed to be used. Wasn't sure how I was going to feed my family of 4 with 2 chicken breasts & came across this recipe! I did not have celery, so added diced potatoes and some frozen peas. Jen - you saved my night, thank you!
Yum yum yum! Used left over cooked chicken. Cooked veggies first - added salt, sage, poultry seasoning & garlic powder. Added cream of mushroom soup and canned mushrooms after veggies were cooked. For dumplings - used at least 1 cup of milk - added pepper, poultry seasoning, garlic powder and italian seasoning to dry mix. Cooked with cover on 10 mins and 10 mins without (add towel to absorb moisture) - added paprika on top for garnish.
MMMMM! This is so good. Now I can make chicken & dumplings like mama used to make! Thank you bisquik! This is easy & very good. My husband & I almost got sick trying to eat the whole pot it was so good.
This recipe was delicious! Even my picky 5 year old ate 2 helpings! I used store bought biscuit dough to make it faster, but the base was amazing!
