Overall, I liked this recipe, but had one small problem. When I went to add the biscuit dough, I realized I only had the Pillsbury Grands "Honey Butter" rolls available in the fridge. I thought the sweetness might not work, but used them anyway. Big mistake. The honey flavor did not jive with the savory flavor of the rest of the dish and I ended up fishing out the dumplings and eating the rest as more of a creamy "chicken stew." It was delicious as a stew, but next time I'll be sure to have some plain biscuits on hand so we don't miss out on the dumplings.
I followed other reviewers' advice and used 1 can of chicken stock + half a can of water instead of all water. I also added half a tsp each of thyme, black pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder. I also added frozen carrots and peas for the last hour of cooking. I found the consistency and overall flavor to be good (minus the weird honey flavored dumplings).
Word to the wise... stick with unflavored biscuit dough!
