This is a really neat recipe. I would have never thought of using biscuits, it was very tasty. I cooked the carrots, celery and onion longer as we like them more done. I also left out the chives/parsley. The recipe was a bit time consuming but well worth the effort. Will make again.
Outstanding soup!! I had this soup at a friends house and loved it. When I made it at home I used leftover roasted chicken from the store and baked the biscuits halfway through before adding them to the soup. I then put the pot in the oven to continue to brown the biscuits. It cooked the biscuits quicker than when my friend made it. Yum! Yum! Thank you for posting the recipe. This was I can never lose it.
This soup is outstanding!! The flavors are wonderful. I used chicken breast and chives. I am terrified of making dumplings but this is my answer! The only thing that I will do differently next time is to cut the biscuits into 1/8 sections because they really blow up. Thank you so much for posting such a great recipe! Made for My 3 Chefs '08.
