My sister gave me this recipe a few years ago and I make it all the time. It tastes so good, it's hard to believe it only takes about 5 minutes to put together!

I feel that this is a great recipe, however, I think it needs extra water and more soup. My biscuits ended up soaking up all of it. I would suggest maybe getting 3-4 cans of soup and adding some water. I feel like it needed more dimension overall, probably could've used some carrots and celery. Next time I will make some adjustments to this recipe.

This was so comforting - the perfect dish after a long day's work. It was quick to throw together and the only extra thing I did was to shred the chicken just before I put the dumplings in. It tasted lovely and I'll definitely be making it again!

This is def worth 5 stars!
My changes- I added a can of vegetables, water and all- one fan of cream of mush, one of chicken, and i also cut my chicken into cubes. Added some extra minced garlic, mrs dash, basil, poulty seasoning and black pepper. I cooked mine on high for 3 hours, quarted the biscuits and stuck on top, let cook for another hour, stirred it all up and added 1/2 cup of masa to thicken. Made it less soupy, and the flavor was delish!!
