Chicken & Dumplings


Comfort food at its finest, Chicken & Dumplings will warm you up and fill you up on those chilly days.

My husband Jason (whom I am sure you guys will hear lots about) works outside all day.  When the colder weather hits I am always trying to make dinners for him that will warm his insides.  One of the requests I get from him all the time is my chicken & dumplings.  Absolutely one of his favorites, hopefully it will become one of yours as well.


Ingredients:

  • 4 or 5 chicken breasts cut into small pieces.
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 or 2 cups frozen mixed vegetables 
  • 2 cans cream of chicken soup
  • 4 cups chicken broth (add more or less to reach desired thickness)
  • 3 or more dashes of worcestershire sauce (more or less to taste)
  • 1 or 2 tbsp poultry seasoning (more or less to taste)
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder (more or less to taste)
  • 1 tbsp onion powder (more or less to taste)
  • 1 tbsp celery seeds (more or less to taste)
  • 2 or 3 cloves garlic (more or less to taste)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 can pillsbury biscuit dough (or homemade)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350F (skip this step if you don't have cast iron)

In a large dutch oven (I use a #9) heat oil over med heat.

Add chicken pieces and sear on all sides (about 5-10 mins total)

Add onions, garlic and mixed vegetables to the chicken and cook stirring often until onions and vegetables are soft.

Add in chicken broth, cream of chicken soup and worcestershire sauce and mix together.

Add in all spices and stir, turn heat to med-low and let simmer for a few minutes.

Cut each biscuit disc into 4 (or make small dumplings from your homemade dough)

Add dough to top of chicken mixture, cover and place into preheated oven.
(If you don't have cast iron, cover pot and simmer on stovetop or add it all to a crock pot on low)

Cook at 350 for 20 mins then lower heat to 200 and stir dumplings into chicken mix.

Cook at 200 for 2 - 4 hours, stirring occasionally and adding more chicken broth if needed.
Remove from oven, stir and enjoy!
