this is a delicious comfort food meal that takes a very short time to put together and will work well using leftover cooked chicken or turkey, you may use your choice of small frozen veggies such as cut green beans, peas, corn, carrots or baby onions or use a mixture.

This is how I normally make my chicken and dumplings! It is quick and so tasty. I always leave out the veggies though.Kids think dumplings don't need to have veggies in with them.Go figure!!!One thing I do to make a thicker broth is dip my cut pieces of biscuit in flour before dropping them in the boiling broth.
