    My Husband and I really enjoyed this recipe !! It was super easy. I made it as stated but I used precooked diced chicken breasts and grands biscuits. It was thick and creamy and delicious !! I will be making this recipe for many years to come. Thank you for the recipe !!

    This is a good chicken and dumpling recipe but I agree with the other reviewer that it needs 2 cans of biscuits......there wasn't enough dumplings for us. I made mine with a little over a pound of boneless chicken breasts and I measured out about 6 cups of broth and it was tasty. Made for Zaar Cookbook Tag game.

    This was good, and it was really easy, too. I didn't roll out and cut the biscuits; I just pinched off pieces and dropped them in. The taste is good, but I had too much broth and not enough dumplings. I wish I could give this 3 1/2 stars, but I'll round up to 4 because it was so easy. I did add another can of biscuits to make this heartier.
