  3. In a small dish, mix together the biscuit mix, chopped onion and milk until well moistened; drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto boiling stew; reduce heat to low and simmer uncovered for 10 minutes.
  4. Cover and simmer an additional 10 minutes; sprinkle with dried parsley the last few minutes of cooking.

Super fast and simple recipe to make. I doubled the stew and used Homemade Bisquick Mix for the bisquick. We all enjoyed this very much, thank you for posting. Made for Recipe Swap #64 - May 2012...Group 5 - Beetroot

Very nice & very filling ~ I really enjoyed this tasty meal! And although I did add more meat than listed (used 2 chicken breast halves) it was just right for 2 of us, & I'm making it again this evening to take to some neighbors! Thanks for sharing!

Thank you so much for the recipe! This is the first time I've been able to successfully make dumplings like my mom does (or dumplings at all, really). And that's even after I accidentally added quite a bit too much milk. The soup came together very quickly and easily from some frozen shredded turkey I had leftover from Thanksgiving, a can of mixed vegetables, and a medium potato. Instead of using Bisquick, I just mixed together some self-rising flour and margarine. I will definitely be keeping this around and coming back to it whenever I want to re-create the soup and dumplings I grew up on!
