Y-U-M-M-Y!! I did boil the chicken and it wasn’t dry at all. I put in carrots, onions, and celery in the pot without cooking them first. I forgot the butter in the dumplings and I rolled them and dropped them into the pot… The recipe didn’t say how much flour to use for step 2 an how much to leave for step 3 which caused me to dump in all of it in step 2 and having to add to stock to thicken in step 3 but only at a spoon full at a time.
Being a Mexican cook I always feared cooking this dish but my partner talked me into it and boy am I happy. I used my own homemade stock (heavy on veggies, garlic, and spices) and used whole wheat flour to make it healthier and I couldn’t believe what I had been missing. This shall now be a fixture in my home cooking.
I actually used a bit over four pounds of chicken. It turned out great! I’m not sure if it’s the addition of baking powder or unsalted butter in the dumplings, but these were the best I’ve tried. It was added to my recipe box and will get a lot of attention in my house. Very, very good! Enjoy it.
This tasted so good!! I have tried other dumpling recipies and this is the first that has turned out. I used half the amount of chicken, salted butter and about 1/2 tsp dried parsley. I didn’t understand what veggie liquid is. I just left the veggies and chicken in, took out the dumplings, and added the water/flour mixture. I LOVED this and my picky 2 year old even ate the dumpling.
Love, love, love this recipe! I made it for the second time tonight. I did adjust the flour some as I used all of it for the dumplings the first time. The dumplings were still good, just a little dense for my taste.
Yummy… I changed a few things… I sauteed the onions, celery and onions in butter 1st. I used a chicken bouillion and water cuz I was out of brotha and I didnt make as large of a serving as it asks for b/c I was only feeding 2 but over all it was delicious.. Hubby said best Chick and Dumplings ever.
1 Rotisserie Chicken
2 small cans of Pillsbury Buttermilk biscuits (any except flaky)
1 can Cream of Chicken Soup
1 32oz box of chicken stock
1 1/2 cups of milk
1/2 tsp. poultry seasoning
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/2 stick butter
1/4 cup flour
3/4 cup milk
How to make it :
Remove all chicken from the bones and dice. Set chicken aside.
Cut biscuits into 1/2″ pieces (roll each biscuit between your hands forming a long tube; then cut into half inch pieces.
Set cut up biscuits on a cookie sheet and keep them separated. Place in refrigerator.
In a large pot, combine chicken stock, cream of chicken soup and milk, whisking together until soup is dissolved. Add Poultry seasoning and black pepper.
Bring to full boil and then add real butter; reducing the heat to medium so that the liquid continues to simmer not boil.
When the butter has melted, start dropping the biscuits into the boiling liquid. Stir occasionally reducing heat to medium or low.
Once all the biscuits have been added to the liquid, let them boil lightly as you prepare a thickener. To make a thickener, combine 1/4 cup of flour, 3/4 cup of milk; thoroughly stir together.
Slowly add thickener to the liquid and biscuits stirring constantly. This will slightly thicken the liquid.
Once liquid begins to thicken, add diced chicken. Let this mixture cook, covered, for approximately 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. When the biscuits are no longer doughy but firm, it is ready to be served.
If you have leftover dough roll little balls and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Bake for dessert!
