They are okay, but you have to be careful you do not make creamy chicken soup instead of chicken and dumplings.
They tend to disintegrate in the stock if your not careful.
I should have typed "Bisquick Recipe" Not Biscuit. They do fluff up into dumplings.

Chicken and dumplings



This was the first time I have made this and the family said it was great. Next time I think I will thicken the stock a bit.

I have yet to make chicken pot pie. Because I'm a little dough challenged (haven't given up yet). I thought a whole wheat biscuit topping would be good. I have a great recipe that turns out nice, high rise, fluffy whole wheat biscuits. I'm thinking I almost don't need a recipe for the rest, but I think a similar type of comfort food to chicken and dumplings.

Ohhh!! How about chicken and dumplings only in a baking dish or pie plate topped with the dumplings? Would that work? Darn! Now I'm hungry and just had a nice lunch.

I never know what to do with chicken and dumplings. Love it, but then I wan't to have mashed potatoes with it... yet it's too much starch. Such a dilemma. 🌹

Just adding my 2 cents here. I DO NOT like my veggies cooked to death in this dish.

Since Bisquick dumplings take twenty minutes of simmering, I don't add the veggies to the chicken and broth until just before the dumplings. Sometimes I add a can of condensed cream of chicken soup to the chicken and broth for a little creamy thickening.
When the dumplings are done, so are the vegetables.

Looks very good! I wonder how many different ways there are for making chicken and dumplings. I leave my chicken pieces whole, or cut in half (breast halves usually). I try to buy nice sized breast halves and cut those in half. Smaller ones I leave whole. Other than onions, spices and fresh herbs, I do my veggies separately. So the dumplings go on top of the liquid, are removed and then I thicken the gravy, and serve with mashed potatoes, a green veggie (I prefer peas) and creamed carrots. This is a dish I reserve for having in the winter. But of course now with all this talk about chicken 'n dumplings, my mouth is watering for chicken 'n dumplings! 🌹

I'm wondering if anyone has ever tried matzo balls for the dumplings. I see the package for the mix at the grocery store and I'm thinking they might work as well. I remember my mother making german style dumplings when I was little and the picture on the package looks very similar.

At Thanksgiving, my aunt used to make a very tasty chicken broth, add Pastina pasta to it and very small Matzo Balls. I always looked forward to it. Everyone got a large cup of the soup with just two Matzo Balls. Then the turkey made the entrance.
