The Best Chicken and Dumplings

Hey there! If you’re looking for a dish that’ll bring back memories of grandma’s kitchen, then look no further than Chicken and Dumplings. This Southern staple is pure comfort food, perfect for a cozy night in. It’s hearty, flavorful, and surprisingly easy to make, thanks to a little secret ingredient – canned biscuits!

Now, I know what you’re thinking: “Can canned biscuits really make good dumplings?” Believe it or not, they absolutely do! They add those lovely pillowy bites that soak up all the delicious chickeny goodness. This recipe is actually an adaptation of my mother-in-law’s, and trust me, her dumplings were legendary.

So, gather your crew and get ready to enjoy a classic Southern dinner.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Chicken: Already cooked and shredded. Rotisserie chicken works great here for a real time-saver!
  • Chicken Broth: Low-sodium is fine if you prefer. For an extra depth of flavor, try using chicken bone broth.
  • Cream of Chicken Soup: This adds that creamy goodness we all love.
  • Canned Biscuits: Two regular cans or one big can of Pillsbury Grands will do the trick.
  • Pepper: Freshly ground black pepper is all you need to finish it off.

Making it Happen:

This recipe is all about simplicity. No fancy equipment needed, just a good ol’ pot!

  1. Heat up the chicken broth in your pot on medium-high heat. Bring it to a gentle boil.
  2. Add your already cooked and shredded chicken.

Now, the fun part – the dumplings! We’ll cover that in the next step.
