This is my second time making this dish. I made some modifications based on my first (failed) attempt and some comments from previous reviews.
First, I didn't have celery, since I live in Turkey and it's hard to find here, but I didn't miss it a bit. We don't have Bisquick here either, but dumpling dough is so simple to make.
Second, I used chicken legs and thighs, which were cheaper and more flavorful than boneless skinless chicken breasts. They are quite easy to de-bone after cooking for that long.
Third, I left out the potatoes this time around; last time I found them bulky and flavorless, and there were so many of them there wasn't room for the dumplings!
Finally, I added two chicken boullion cubes and left out the pre-made soup. I didn't have poultry seasoning either, so to spice up the dish, I added 1 tbsp of dried rosemary, 2 bay leaves, 1/2 tsp of cumin, and 2 cloves of garlic.
With these modifications, it was the best chicken and dumplings I've ever eaten (not to brag ;)).
