Easy Chicken and Dumplings

Homemade Chicken and Dumplings

I may be living under a rock because it wasn’t until just a few months ago that I tried Chicken and Dumplings Soup for the first time. Call me crazy, I know, but it’s just one of those recipes my mom never made growing up and one I wasn’t familiar with. To be honest, the word “dumpling” never really sounded appetizing to me which may be one reason I never sought the recipe out. Rewind back to a few months ago when we gathered as women at church to share recipes, and that is the first time I ever tried it. I couldn’t believe it because it was stinkin’ delicious!! I got the recipe from my friend and did some searches for even more Chicken and Dumplings recipes and ended up making a few.

The recipe I am sharing today happens to be my favorite of all the ones I tried. I loved the smaller chunks of dough and felt like it was INCREDIBLY simple. I made the recipe when my sister was over and I asked if she had ever tried it. She hadn’t either and I could tell she was skeptical, but even she loved it. The funny thing? Her and I love the DUMPLINGS part the most. Here we were thinking we wouldn’t like it, and not only did we like it – we LOVED it!

How to make Chicken and Dumplings:

I was actually surprised by how fast this recipe is to make! It can be done in under 30 minutes. Granted, I did used canned chicken, soup, veggies, and biscuit dough. Honestly, you couldn’t even tell! If you wanted to use fresh veggies or homemade biscuit dough, it would take slightly longer. Here are the instructions!

  1. In a large pot combine broth, chicken, and soup, then bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 5 minutes.
  2. Add biscuit quarters and vegetables. Cover and simmer for an additional 15-20 minutes. Stir occasionally to keep biscuits from sticking together.
  3. Serve into bowls and topped with fresh parsley. ENJOY!

The family loved this recipe as well, which means we will be making it many more times, especially once the weather cools down. In case you are already anxious for fall weather and soups, I highly recommend giving this recipe a try. It’s quick, easy and so yummy!

    made this tonight, super easy and simple to make! i halved the recipe and used better than bouillon to make 2 cups of broth. i also used two shredded chicken breasts, half a can of cream of chicken, two carrots, one celery stalk, a small chopped onion, and half a can of refrigerated buttermilk biscuits. after i let the soup simmer for 15 minutes, the broth had reduced a significant amount so i added about a half cup of water to bring it back up. it tastes absolutely fantastic, a really great bold chicken flavor and the dumplings are sooo soft. i’ve never made dumplings before, so this seems like such an easy and delicious way to prepare them! thanks for the recipe my friend, it came in real handy and i’ll definitely be making this again. 👍🏻

      That sounds perfect!! I’m glad you thought the dumplings were easy and I’m so glad you liked it! Thanks for letting me know!!

    I am planning to make this during the week! Do you put in the biscuit cooked or uncooked to the chicken and dumplings soup?
    Thanks!

    Wow yummy recipe for this weekend 🙂 I want to ask what about cooked biscuit??

    Linda

    This recipe is good, but if you have ever tried it with homemade dumplings you would never go back to canned. It doesn’t take long and makes all the difference in taste. Would love to know what you think if you do. Thanks for the great recipes, look forward to many more.

    I only used one can of biscuits, and warning – do NOT use flaky biscuits! They’re falling apart 🙂 I also had to add water, but I could be letting it simmer too high. It smells good, hopefully it tastes good! I also substituted one shredded chicken breast for the cans.
