Cooked Chicken for Dumplings

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Jenny Frenny

This is the chicken and broth I use to make chicken and dumplings. I make the dumplings on the Bisquick box. I like to divide the chicken and broth into two pots so I can double the recipe for dumplings. Adding the Bisquick dumplings thickens up the broth and makes is creamy.

The flavor was great! I doubled the recipe and saved half of the broth and chicken from step 5 to use later. Thanks for a good and simple recipe!
