Homemade Chicken and Dumplings Recipe

Homemade Chicken and Dumplings made EASY. The light and flaky biscuits atop the creamy chicken soup filled with perfectly cooked vegetables help make this classic recipe great for a warm and comforting dinner great for any season! So make a batch of this creamy soup for today then freeze some for another day.

I hope all of you mothers had a fabulous day yesterday! I got spoiled. My boys let me sleep in and I was awakened by the two cutest smiley faces on the planet. That was followed by breafast in bed and a tickling session. It was a day to remember!

Today I have been planning dinners for the week. New things, of course, because it is rare that I make the same thing twice. But really, all I want to do is make this Chicken and Dumplings recipe again because it was sooooo good. And EASY. A lot of Chicken and Dumplings recipes are complicated (or at least too complicated for ME), involving making dough from scratch. This one does not require dough-making and is done in less than 40 minutes. I am adding it to my favorites list...a huge endorsement!

Get out a Dutch oven or heavy saucepan and add onion, carrots, celery, garlic, thyme, salt and pepper.

Cook until the onions are soft and fragrant, about 3-5 minutes.

Add shredded chicken (tear meat from a Rotisserie chicken to make it easy!), chicken broth, cream of chicken soup and water.

Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer.

Open a can of refrigerated biscuits and cut each one into 4 equal parts.

Throw the dough chunks into the Dutch oven/saucepan.

Simmer, covered, for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

And that's it! Dinner is done! A perfect biscuit to serve alongside this to sop up more of that great sauce are these gluten-free biscuits that Mama Gourmand shared with me. Enjoy!

Sprinkle with a bit of chopped parsley and serve warm!
