Easy Chicken and Dumplings

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 20 mins

Cobbled together from several recipes found on Recipezaar. Celery is optional because I hate it, but it is very traditional for chicken and dumplings.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter in a large saucepan. Add onion, carrot, bell pepper and celery (if using). Saute until onion and pepper are soft, 4-5 minutes.
  2. Sprinkle flour and poultry seasoning over, stirring until flour is slightly cooked, 1-2 minutes.
  3. Add broth, cream, peas and chicken. Stir well. Bring to a heavy simmer.
  4. Cut each biscuit in quarters. Drop biscuit pieces into pot without stirring. Simmer 5 minutes uncovered, then lower heat, cover and simmer an additional 10 minutes, or until dumplings are cooked. Stir GENTLY to distribute dumplings before serving.
