Chicken and DumplingsThis good old country recipe is my idea of the ultimate comfort food!



Boil chicken at least 2 hours, until meat is tender. Turn off burner.

Carefully remove chicken from water, which is now your broth. Reserve broth. This should've cooked down to approximately 3 quarts liquid volume. Let chicken cool half an hour or so. (Refrigerate to speed cooling.) Remove any bones. Replace boned chicken in broth. Bring back to a boil.

Open canned biscuits as directed. Tear each individual biscuit into approx 4-6 pieces. Drop into boiling broth. Stir often to prevent biscuits adhering to each other. Once all biscuits are in broth, cook on medium heat approx 30 minutes, stirring often to prevent sticking.

Serve as main dish, or as side with fried chicken and any other side dish you prefer.

Source: My mother's old recipe. She made it for us often when I was a child. I've missed it and her even more since we lost her to cancer in 2006. Now that I've finally figured out how to make it like she did, I wanted to honor her memory by sharing it with my TF family.

To make chicken and dumplings with less fat, I freeze or chill my chicken broth in the freezer. I then remove the fat which has come to the top.

Okay people, this is so easy and yummy. All you need is 2 cans of Cream of Chicken soup, empty into pan, and fill one can up with milk and add to the pan, then get 3 cans of biscuits.

Here is a good use for leftover chicken. Mine is for one person. Mix pancake mix (I use this instead of regular baking mix, just because I like it. You can use Jiffy or whatever pleases you.)

If you're referring to the frozen kind I don't see why not. Would probably be something like the southern rolled dumplings. Give it a go and report back!
