  1. Combine chicken broth, chicken breast cubes, onion, carrots, celery, bay leaf, salt, and pepper in a large pot; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover pot, and simmer until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the vegetables are tender, 20 to 25 minutes.
  2. Mix baking mix and milk in a bowl until dough is sticky; drop golf ball-sized pieces of dough into the soup. Cover pot and cook until dumplings are cooked through, about 10 minutes.

I liked this w/ the exception of the bisquick - it's better w/ a dumpling made from scratch, and doesn't take much more time either. I added some herbs to the broth for added flavour. I learned to take a kitchen towel and cover the pot, and then place the lid on top -this helps to remove excess moisture.


I use this recipe. My family loves it. I also add a handful of frozen mixed vegetables to it before I add the dumplings. My way of cooking the dumplings are 10 minutes covered and 10 minutes uncovered. Great recipe!


I made this tonight, it was delicious. As some others have done, I made some additions/substitutions. I found using the Bisquick a bit heavy, but I suppose that's the point! I added rosemary to the Bisquick mixture. I added thyme, garlic powder, and some Veloutine to the soup. I didn't particularly want to add the thickener, but my mom wanted it much more like a stew than a soup. I also added frozen peas just before dropping the dumplings. I used 4 whole chicken breasts, as there are four of us. There is a little bit leftover, but I found that a cereal bowl with the "soup" and 2 dumplings was quite enough for me. All in all, very easy to make, tasty, and easy to adjust to individual tastes.
