Directions

  1. Combine chicken broth, chicken breast cubes, onion, carrots, celery, bay leaf, salt, and pepper in a large pot; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover pot, and simmer until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the vegetables are tender, 20 to 25 minutes.
  2. Mix baking mix and milk in a bowl until dough is sticky; drop golf ball-sized pieces of dough into the soup. Cover pot and cook until dumplings are cooked through, about 10 minutes.

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!

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.

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!

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!
