The first time I made this was in the beginning of November and was already the first of a very cold winter in Minnesota. I made this a lot and It was a smashing success. My husband tore it up, his brother tore it up, the kids tore it up, and I managed to get a bowl too. I used 3 cans of cream of chicken, instead of 2. I never add water to anything, so I used a cup of chicken broth instead. I added onions, minced garlic, and sage. I didn't have any problems with the dumplings. They tend to look like they're going to form a cover, like one big solid biscuit. So after 5 minutes I used a butter knife and sliced thru them and continued to do that few times as they were cooking. Once the bottom and sides hardened they kept shape. I doubled the biscuit mix (hubby loves him some biscuits) and got 10 biscuits out of it. My house smelled so amazing all day. With the dumplings, I cooked them for 35 minutes. By then the Chicken stew was done so I turned it to "keep warm" and took my daughter to her Physical therapy appt and when I came back a little over and hour later, they were perfect! This became a staple over our -50 degree winter when we were all pretty cold, and this warmed us up so nicely. I will be making this again and again.
