    Hey Jude's Note:

    I saw this being made on 'Semi-Homemade' with Sandra Lee. It looked so good and although I rarely use convenience products, I did break down and buy a jar of chicken gravy and the canned biscuit dough so that I could try this. The original recipe called for buying containers of already chopped up onion, celery and carrot but, come on now, how hard is that to do in your kitchen?? So, I'm giving the amounts I used for each of those ingredients. Here is the revised recipe, as I made it (and my family loved it!)

    1. 1
      Remove skin from chicken and chop or shred meat into large pieces. Set aside.
    2. 2
      In a small frying pan, add vegetable oil and heat over medium heat; add chopped onions and saute until soft.
    3. 3
      In a large pot or Dutch oven, add broth (both cans), poultry seasoning, salt, pepper, carrots, celery and sauteed onion. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to simmer for about 10 minutes to soften vegetables and then add shredded chicken. Continue to simmer while preparing dumplings.
    4. 4
      Open can and remove biscuits. On a lightly floured surface, roll each biscuit to about 1/4-inch thick. Cut each biscuit into 4 wedges. Set aside.
    5. 5
      Skim surface of stew for any scum that has risen to top. Stir in chicken gravy.
    6. 6
      With the stew simmering over low heat, stir in dumplings a few at a time. Once all dumplings are in the pot, cover with a tight fitting lid and cook for 10 minutes.
    7. 7
      Ladle into bowls and serve piping hot.

      Wonderful. My husband went for 3rds. I did reduce the amount of broth and added a second jar of chicken gravy. I also used stock instead of broth for a heartier flavor. I added my own seasonings to taste instead of measuring. The veggies were sauted in butter instead of oil in the stock pot and then I followed all the directions as written. The dumplings did not cook on low but when I increased it to med they cooked up very nice.

      I made this after seeing it on Sandra's show. This is a great recipe and the chicken gravy is an excellent addition. Only thing I would recommend is to saute the onions in the dutch oven and add rest of ingredients accordingly. Not sure why you have to saute onions in a frying pan first then add it to the pot (one less dirty dish). Also, this reminded me of a soup more (which it is still awesome) but next time I might reduce the amount of broth and increase the gravy...just a thought. Still, a wonderful recipe definately worth trying and will be made again!

      We loved this one! I'm teaching my kids how to cook and My 10 yr old son picked this recipe out. I have never made chicken and dumplings before, but it was so quick and easy for both of us. The kids kept asking for more! I had to substitute boneless skinless chicken breast for the whole chicken - my store was out of them. But it worked out wonderfully! We will be making this again!
