  1. Stir the cream of chicken soup, chicken broth, and shredded chicken meat together in a large saucepan over medium-high heat until it begins to simmer. Cut each biscuit into quarters, and gently stir into the simmering soup. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the biscuits are no longer doughy in the center, 10 to 15 minutes.

Good. Did you know you can cut flour tortillas into strips for noodles?...Like homemade?

I really, really wanted to love this, but I didn't. My favorite comfort food is Southern Chicken and Dumplings. (And, at least where I come from, we don't use veggies, etc.; it's pretty much chicken cooked in water/stock with a little celery, onion, salt and pepper. Then the chicken meat is removed from the bones, fat, etc. and returned to the pot with the strained stock. Dumplings are made with cold water, rolled and cut into strips.) So, I wasn't looking for veggies or anything, but this was still a huge miss for me. I don't know exactly what I didn't like about it. Perhaps there was too much cream of chicken soup? And, the biscuit dumplings weren't right, even cooked they were too puffy and doughy. Maybe if I'd rolled the biscuits and then cut them and reduced the cream of chicken soup to one can? I'm just not sure. Anyway, I'm glad so many others have loved this recipe - only wish I felt the same.

this is a great basic recipe, I use this all the time, however...I add in carrots and celery and also cook it in my crock pot. I add the biscuits to the crock pot immediately and stir them in. The will float to the top and also brown!

This is so easy and simple, dELISH! I boiled the chicken then put in crock pot and added celery and carrots, a little pepper and onion powder to taste. I added the biscuits right into the crock pot and stired in. yummy!

I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out great, my only mistake was that I bought the Grands Biscuits so they were twice as big and with two cans they soaked up most of the sauce. We had family in town when I made it and everyone loved it.

Made this last night and everyone loved it. I added a bag of frozen mixed vegetables. We will be making this again.

Loved it!. So simple and so awesome. I used the frozen dumplin strips, added an extra can of broth and 2 chicken boullion cubes. This was delicious! Family loved it. Great hearty soup. Awesome for chilly nights. I actually thought this was better than my Grannie's homemade recipe that she was known for ;)

I thought this tasted great, as did my husband and 18 month old. It was unbelievably simple! I mixed the cream soups amd broth with chicken, spices and veggies in the crock pot for a few hours on high, then turned it to low, added the biscuits (1 16 oz can), and let it cook another 3 hours. It was wonderful!
