My husband loves this recipe. I follow the recipe pretty closely, and instead of using the jiffy mix, make my own using flour, salt, baking soda and milk. The first time I made this, I ended up with some really hard dumplings because I didn't use a wide pot. So the next time, I made just enough dumplings to cover the top of the pot. Then, in another pan, I made the rest of the batch (I just used additional two cans of chicken broth mixed with some poultry seasoning so the dumplings could cook in it). It came out wonderful and we ended up with light fluffy dumplings.

This is my kids favorite soup recipe. They ask for it about every 3 weeks, even in our TX summers. I x8 the recipe, except for the dumplings and chicken, dividing it into 2 pots before I add the broth. Doubles (and more) exceptionally. I use Dumplings for the dumplings.

I am a big fan of Rachael Ray's recipes. This one was so easy and delicious. The broth was just too good. Filling and very comfy--perfect rainy day food. Thanks for sharing.

Soooo good! I baked off chicken breasts in the oven for 30 minutes then shredded them with forks. Other than that I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out wonderful. Definitely a keeper!

This. is. amazing. I had to sub one can of cream of celery soup b/c I was out of broth and boullion, but it was delicious. My southern husband loved it, as did the rest of us. I used homemade biscuit-type dumplings.

I used leftover rotisserie chicken and Heart Healthy Bisquick for the dumplings. This was a pretty good chicken and dumplings. Thanks for sharing!

Wonderful! I made this last night using left over rotisserie chicken, and followed the rest of the recipe except I followed Lori in NC and made Bisquick dumplings and added some fresh parsley and some fresh chives to the dumplings. An easy and delicious meal. Thanks for a wonderful recipe...it's definatley a favorite of ours!

Delicious meal and a real man-pleaser, plus very easy to prepare. Just two changes, but one might have added additional flavor. I deboned a lemon-pepper seasoned rotisserie chicken from the deli for this recipe. The only other difference is I used the Bisquick dumplings recipe. Took me about 40 minutes, not including deboning the chicken. I served peas on the side as son does not care for them (he had broccoli), along with mashed potatoes. Thanks for this great recipe!

This is a great recipe...now, to be honest I had to change it up some. I started out as directed but after all of the veggies were done I took them out of the pot and quickly cooked my chicken pieces...added the veggies back to the pot. I didn't have poultry seasoning...so I added about a quarter to half teaspoon of sage and a good amount of salt and pepper. I used one box of chicken broth...and frozen dumplings that I get at our wal-mart...Mary Hall's I think. I used a half package of them, they come in strips and I just cut them to about one inch squares, dropped them in and let them cook about 10 minutes...and no peas. The peas seemed a odd addition to me. My very picky...I don't like chicken and dumplings family LOVED them. Not the way my Mamaw made them...but great for my family! Thanks for sharing... Oh, and as to time...I have never made a "30 minute meal" in thirty minutes...but this one was only about 40...getting better : )
