Comfort Food Favorites: Chicken and Dumplings


I love to aggravate my friends who refuse to eat chili in the summer. I am a soup, chili and comfort food connoisseur! Any time is the right time for a good pot of chicken and dumplings!

Somewhere, someone taught me how to make really quick version of chicken and dumplings. Granted it isn’t the satisfying, made from scratch dough, but I think you will like them, and love how easy they are to fix.

I have shared this recipe with so many widows, and widowers, who are hungry for them but do not want to fix a large amount of food. You can easily change up how much/little you want to make, while satisfying your hunger!

Easy Chicken and Dumplings


  • Up to 3 cans (small) biscuits
  • Box of chicken broth
  • 2 cans cream of chicken
  • Chicken (I use rotisserie pulled off the bone)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • *milk


Depending on how big of a pot of dumplings you want to make, pour entire box of chicken broth into stock pot. Add salt and black pepper to taste. Add chicken. Bring to a boil. Open cans of biscuits, and pinch off dough pieces and throw into hot broth (I feed four people with three cans and a whole box of chicken broth. Use as much or as little chicken as you like.) Do not stir yet! On a low-medium heat, continue to cook dumplings, using a spoon to make sure all the dough is immersed in the broth and cooking. When the dumpling dough is done, you are ready to eat! Grad your spoons, bowl and enjoy this easy comfort food favorite!

*If your dumplings are too thick, add a slash or two of milk to thin
