Chicken and Dumplings…

I got a request for the Chicken and Dumplings recipe that I make for dinner and have mentioned on my blog. I haven’t posted the recipe before because there really isn’t one. This is just something that I have made for years and know how to make. But, I took the time to write down what I do for anyone who wants to attempt it. It is a very comforting, warm dish to serve to your family on a cold winter night. My picky eater even loves this recipe, which is saying a lot!

Chicken and Dumplings


2 Chicken Breasts
Chicken Broth
2 cups Bisquick
2/3 cup milk
Salt & pepper

Cook chicken in crockpot covered with water until done (approx. 2-3 hours) or boil chicken on stovetop until cooked (approx. 30 mins). Remove chicken from water and shred. Set aside chicken and reserve water from cooking for use later.


Stir 2 cups Bisquick Mix and 2/3 cup milk until soft dough forms. Set aside.

In large stockpot, place shredded chicken, water from cooking and additional chicken broth until it looks like enough. I do not measure the liquid, I just eyeball it, so I am not sure how much to tell you to add. Bring to a boil and drop large spoonfuls of dumpling dough onto boiling stew. DO NOT STIR!! Reduce heat; cook uncovered 10 minutes. DO NOT STIR!!! Cover; cook 10 mins long. Now you can gently stir and serve.

May need additional salt and pepper.
