  • i boil my chicken with bell pepper, bullion cubes, celery, onion, bay leaves, and other seasonings. after the chicken is cooked i remove it from the broth. I add half a can of chicken soup to the broth and stir til blended. for the dumplins i use bisquick. I just mix as instructed and drop spoon sized dumplins on top of he broth. DELISH!

  • I boil my chicken breast in chicken broth, and when done, take it out and let it cool slightly before cutting into bite-sized cubes.

    I use Bisquick. Mix with water (I eyeball, if you've ever made biscuits, that's the consistency you're going for - not too dry, but not so wet you can't get it to roll), roll out to 1/4" thick using flour as needed to prevent sticking, and cut into 1"x1" squares using a pizza cutter. Drop into boiling chicken broth. Drop a few at a time in different areas of your pot so that they don't clump together in a big mess. Gently boil for approx 10 minutes, testing a dumpling to check for doneness. You can then stir back in the cooked chicken breast, or, do as I do - put a good-sized portion in the bottom of each bowl and ladle the broth/dumpling mixture on top. Salt and pepper to taste.

  • Albaston is right on, though I leave out the onions, and sometimes add some finely shredded carrots to sneak in a veggie. Even canned biscuits cut in half will work for dumplings if you're in a hurry, though bisquick (spoon dropped-not strips) is better.
