Kitten, this was absolutely fab-u-lous! My family just "Mmmm'd" through the whole meal. I've made dumplings many times before and this is the first using canned biscuits. What a surprise! They were incredible! This was such a soul-warming meal....perfect for these cold days that are upon us. I didn't have canned broth, but I did have a container of "soup base". This stuff in great. I just put 5 cups of water into a big bowl, nuked it, then added as much soup base as I wanted. I did add extra and the taste was just wonderful. Also, since I only had 2 cups of left-over chicken, I used extra vegetables. I had a large bag of broccoli, cauliflour (sp?), and carrots. The veges were large, so I thawed them a bit and then chopped them into tiny pieces. We had enough left for two meals. The second night, I didn't have quite as much left so I used Grand Biscuits, cooked them, and when they were almost done, I split them and put ham and cheese between. I cooked for a few minutes until the cheese was melted and Oh, boy, did these sammys tasted good dunked into your Chicken and Dumplings. Also, Kitten, I'm sorry I haven't emailed you in a while. I don't have the Premium Membership anymore. This gives me a good chance to say "HI" and I hope and pray that you're feeling well. Terry
I made this for a holiday party, and it was a huge hit! Thank you!! Everyone wanted the recipe. I can't wait to make it again - it's so easy!!
I made this but didn't do the dumplings because my family thought they were gonna blow away with the wind from starvation (HA!!)..so being in a rush, I just made the "stew" cooked the biscuits in the oven while I made it, and served this over hot biscuits..YUMMM! would be great over rice too!!
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.
Very good! I used cream of chicken with herbs soup, and store-brand bisquits. My grandkids ate every bite- that's worth five stars in itself! Thanks, Kitten!
I'm a new cook and I've never made turkey and dumplings before. I found this recipe to be easy and delicious! I had leftover dark and white meat after roasting a turkey "thanksgiving style" so I figured this would be a great way to use the meat once my family was tired of the same old leftovers. Everything went according to plan. Thanks for posting such a great recipe and thanks for making me look like I've been cooking all my life!
