This recipe is hands down the BEST ever! I'm not much of a cook, but when I made this my fiance called me "The Chicken & Dumpling Queen". We like ours nice and thick, so I used 3 cans of the Cream of Chicken Soup, 3 cups of chicken broth, and cut the veggies into small pieces. I made my own dumplings because I don't like the box stuff. Take 1 3/4 cups of all purpose flour, 1/2 tspn baking soda, salt,3 tablespoons of veg. shortening, and 3/4 cups of low-fat buttermilk. Add all ingredients, stir til you get the consistency of dough. roll out dough and cut into 2 inch rectangles. Add to boiling stew and simmer for 10-15 minutes. It's really good on a cold night. It Rocks!!! Thanks Claire..I couldn't have impressed my fiance without your recipe!

Very, very bland! Before adding the dumplings, I tasted the "stew" and couldn't believe how bland it actually was..... I used chicken broth, in place of the water (next time I'll use chicken stock vs broth for more flavor), added another can of cream of chicken w/herbs, 2 tsp of onion powder, 1 tsp of garlic powder, 1/2 tsp of garlic salt, 1 tsp of black powder and 2 tsp of poultry seasoning. Helpful hint: DO NOT "drop" your dumplings to close together ~ to cook properly they need room to breathe and the liquid needs to bubble up between them. Better with the listed changes. This recipe has potential, but definitely needs spicing up!


Cut the potatoes into 8ths (they don't cook well if you don't). And be certain to chop the carrots and onions into bite size pieces -- you will spend your time eating cutting the pieces with a fork if you don't do this. Be absolutely sure the stew is boiling before you put the dumplings in (they will be soggy if you don't). 1/2 the dumpling recipe is plenty (recipe on the side of Bisquick box). You can reheat the stew the next night and make new dumplings.
