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 :)

Delicious! We substituted cream of chicken soup for the cream of celery and used 2 cans of biscuits. It was sooo good!

This went over really well. I used 1 can cream of chicken, one can of cream of mushroom, and one teaspoon celery salt instead of poultry seasoning. I didn't really understand the directions for the biscuits. I just patted them really thin, cut them in half, then sliced then about 1/2" wide, then stretched them out as I put them in. I used Grands buttermilk biscuits - seemed like a lot but was perfect. Also added some leftover corn and a can of peas at the end.

This was exellent and so very easy. As some mentioned, they thought they liked it a little thicker, so minstead of adding a cornstarch slurry I added another can of soup. This time reduced fat cream of chicken! I also used soup from a box instead of cans.My husband likes vegatables in his so I added shredded carrots and some frozen peas at the very end.
Thanks for sharing. I'll be making this a lot. :-)

I have made this meal twice now, thanks so much for sharing it!

I have "tweaked" the recipe a little bit. I used the meat from an entire rotisserie chicken, and used two 24 oz boxes of chicken broth rather than the four cans. I also substituted a can of cream of chicken soup for one of the cans of cream of celery soup. I added diced onions and carrots, and this most recent time I added a can of sweet peas to the mix. I also used the Grands biscuits, a 16 oz package rather than the 10 oz size suggested in the recipe. When I rolled the biscuits, I used Wondra flour to keep them from sticking, which I think helped to thicken the broth. I used more Wondra flour in the dish when it was nearly finished to thicken the broth even more.

This dish is delicious, hearty and very comforting - it truly is a taste of home. I don't know who thought to use biscuits as dumplings, but what a great convenience. We have added this recipe to the regular rotation. This will be a winter fave for us!
