    BamaKathy's Note:

    When my Granny died, I missed her and her chicken and dumplings, because NO one made them like Granny. I tried several recipes but they were either very complicated or not very good. Then I found this one and even my Yankee husband who doesn't like dumplings tried to hide the leftovers to take to work the next day. We LOVE this recipe. They are actually better than Granny's. Even Mama agrees. (Sorry, Granny!)

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 cups rotisserie-cooked chicken (cooked, pulled off bones)
    • 4 (14 ounce) cans chicken broth
    • 2 (10 1/2 ounce) cans cream of celery soup
    • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
    • 1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
    • 1 (10 count) can buttermilk biscuits


    1. 1
      In large pot, bring chicken, broth, soup, pepper and poultry seasoning to a boil.
    2. 2
      Then reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes.
    3. 3
      In the meantime, lightly flour a piece of waxed paper and a rolling pin (or a round drinking glass works). Also lay out a clean piece of waxed paper to put on after rolling.
    4. 4
      Take two biscuits and roll out in circle to 1/8 inch thickness. Lay them on the other piece of waxed paper.
    5. 5
      Repeat with all biscuits. Then take a knife and slice the circles into one inch strips.
    6. 6
      Bring pot back to a low boil. Pick up each strip and pull into 1 1/2 to 2 inch pieces and drop into broth on low boil.
    7. 7
      Stir gently to prevent them sticking together.
    8. 8
      Simmer for ten minutes.

      Very easy to prepare and oh so very tasty - I took one of the other reviewers suggestion to thicken up the soup - otherwise made as directed. The celery soup is the key I think & I will definitely be making this again. Thanks for posting BamaKathy :)

      My husband liked this as written, but the next time I think I will cut the poultry seasoning to 1/4 tsp. and use 1 can of cream of chicken soup and 1 can of celery soup. I used pre-made frozen dumpling strips from the grocery and the meat from two deli chicken breasts which made this recipe super easy. Also, I thickened the liquid just a little with a flour/water mixture. Thanks for posting this recipe. It's so easy and can be tweaked to suit each families' tastes.

      This was delicious and easy to make. I made my own dumplings rather than using the biscuits and my husband who normally doesn't care for chicken and dumplings keeps asking for more! Thanks for the great recipe :)
