Directions

  1. In a large pot over high heat, combine the chicken with enough water to cover, and boil for 15 to 20 minutes. Drain some of the water from the pot, reserving 3 cups in the pot. Remove chicken and allow it to cool, then pull it apart into bite size pieces; return to pot.
  2. Reduce heat to medium, and add the cans of condensed soup. Season with salt and pepper. Pull the biscuit dough into pieces, and add to the soup. Simmer over medium heat for 7 to 8 minutes, or until the dough is cooked through.

im only 13 and i could make this all by my self so it was really easy. i made some revisions to the recipe though such as, i changed the soup to creme of chicken and i also added another can of it to make 3. i also added a can of chicken broth instead of the 3 cups of water but then it was very chickeney so i added 1/2 a can of water. but for the briskets i added a lot more than lot called for and rolled them into balls before dropping them in. i dont know if you will like my changes but my parents said it was really good:) -molly...if you like the revisions maybe you could add a review because i want to be a cook one day....thanks

GREAT basic recipe! I modified it a bit (like everyone else) as follows: Sauteed 1/8 c chopped onion and 1 lg. garlic clove (chopped) in 1 TBL butter before adding chicken. I used chicken tenderloin and covered it with 2 cans chicken broth. Did not drain any broth when chicken was done. Added 1 c cream of chicken, 1 c cream of mushroom and 1 can cream of celery soup and 1/2 box frozen peas and carrots. I used two cans of Pillsbury buttermilk biscuits and after sprinkling about 1 TBL of Wondra (very fine) flour on a paper plate, cut them into a tic-tac-toe pattern. I dusted the dumplings with the flour on the plate and put 1/2 of them in the pot to cook (when it was boiling). They took about 15 minutes. After we had eaten all of the dumplings in the pot, I turned the heat back on, let it come to a boil again and cooked the remaining dumplings for the leftovers. Without the dumplings crowding into each other, they plumped nicely, didn't stick together and there were plenty for the leftovers.

This is the first time that I have made chicken and dumplings because I never wanted to go to the trouble. This is a great recipe and the previous listed suggestions that I used were: using 1 cup of broth and 2 cups water to cover chicken, adding sliced carrots, chopped celery and onion, 2 smashed garlic cloves (which I later removed). I used Chardonnay wine (had some in the frig). I used one can of non-grand, non-flaky refrigerator biscuits - tearing off thumb sized pieces and flattening them slightly between my thumb and forefinger as I threw them into the pot. My husband loved it and for me it was a one dish meal with compliments - and no left overs. Can't get better than that!
