I needed a quick weeknight recipe for my family and I was craving something stew-like with chicken. I found this recipe and decided to give it a try. As I was dropping the biscuit dough into the broth, I was beginning to worry. I had a feeling it was going to taste bland and that the biscuit dough would become gluey. I was totally wrong. This recipe is delicious and so easy! My whole family loved it and it took no time or effort to make. I have a new simple recipe that I will make again and again.
GingerlyJ, these chicken and dumplings were excellent! They were easy to make and had that great homemade taste that I remember so well when living back home in the South. I seasoned some chicken breasts with Chicken Montreal seasoning, poured some olive oil and baked it in the oven then cut it into chunks. For the biscuits, I used Grands biscuits and cut them into 9 pieces, and added a mixture of ground sage and a little savory. My family loved it and we gave some to our neighbors who had never had chicken and dumplings before. They also enjoyed it. My 7-year-old said "Mommy, I love your chicken and dumpalees!" This recipe is a keeper; thank you for sharing.

Even though I am still young (25) Life experince has aged me alot. I learned to cook at both of my grandmother's knees (One southern American, one southern Irish) when I was about five. By ten I started collecting cookbooks and experinmenting on my own. As a latch key kid I cooked for my four younger brothers and sisters. My mom ran a small deli before she died when I was 17 so alot of my recies debuted there. Now I run my own catering Buisness. I am married to a wnderful man for five years now. I am a six year old daughter, sons who are four and three. We are also raising my 14 year old sister and nine Year old stepsister and have a 16 year old foster daughter, all of which love cooking with me.
