  1. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside; reserve bacon drippings in skillet.
  2. Add potatoes, onion and chicken to bacon drippings and cook for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Pour in chicken broth; season with poultry seasoning, salt and pepper. Stir in corn, and simmer all together for 15 minutes.
  3. Pour in half-and-half and bring to a boil; add crumbled bacon. In a medium bowl, combine biscuit mix with milk and mix well (dough should be thick). Drop tablespoon sizes of dough into boiling mixture; reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes uncovered, then another 10 minutes covered. (Note: Do not stir while simmering, or dumplings will break apart). Serve hot.

Oh my gosh!! This was incredible. I was craving a stick-to-your-ribs comfort food, and this fit the bill. I used a package of chicken tenderloins instead of breasts, 1/3 Cup frozen corn, and roughly the same amount of chopped carrots and celery. Did add about 2 tsp cornstarch to the half&half before adding it, and followed the Bisquick box directions for dumplings. Perfection! Licking our chops still! Thank you for the great recipe!

It's good, but several changes needed: The dumplings need more mix to cause the batter to be the proper thickness called for in the recipe. I only used one potato and left out the corn. As a southern-bred person, add anything else besides the chicken and dumplings and we called it stew!

I left out the canned corn and used 2C lowfat milk rather than 3C half and half. Delicious! I also used a small can (one of those 4-packs) of biscuit dough, each cut into quarters, instead of the biscuit mix. To thicken the soup, I added 1T cornstarch mixed with 2T water. A warm, hearty meal.

This recipe is sooooo good! I made it exactly the way the recipe says, except that I used milk instead of half and half. I couldn't believe how yummy this meal turned out to be! Can't wait to make it again!

This was very good. I added garlic, carrot, celery and frozen corn instead of canned. Next time I make I will double the bacon. I used Bisquick so I had to change the measurments in regard to the mix/milk amounts.

Overall, this is a great tasting recipe. A definite keeper, and I can't say that about too many recipes I try the first time. I cut the poultry seasoning down to 3/4 tsp. and it still tasted very good. I would cut the dumpling mixture in half next time though, because it was way too much and tended to soak up a lot of the sauce mixture. My whole family liked it though~even my kids ate it!

This a great cold weather recipe. We enjoyed it - even the leftovers. This recipe doesn't need any help.

DELICIOUS!!!!!!!!!! I used 1 1/2 cup of milk and 1 1/2 cup half and half and followed the directions on the Bisquick box as other reviews suggested. This is an awesome recipe! Everyone in my family had seconds! WOW
